Diego’s Umbrella
Live performance
Often dressed in elaborate home-made outfits, these urban gringo mariachis have performed well over 800 live shows.  Included in that list are 2 European tours across the continent and numerous tours of the American West.  The band has held a weekly residency at the Park Chalet in San Francisco since July 2005 and continues to play every Tuesday night at the famous bar and restaurant.  DU has also become a frequent and popular act at private events such as weddings and corporate parties for large-scale clients including Macy’s, Quiksilver, Google, Microsoft and The Hilton Hotel.


Company Car
In 2003 Company Car made it’s debut in the San Francisco Rock scene. Since then, they have gained recognition throughout the bay area for their unconventional song structures, lush harmonies, catchy melodies and entertaining live shows. This reputation has allowed them to play some of the best stages in the bay area including, Bottom of the Hill, Cafe Du Nord, 12 Galaxies and the infamous Slim’s as well as play with popular acts such as The Smoking Popes, No Use For A Name, Chuck Ragan, Koufax, The Actual and The Heavenly States.


Hank IV
HANK IV is a San Francisco rock band with no relation whatsoever to the Hank Williams clan. Hank IV plays hard-charging, primitive and visceral dual-guitar/tandem vocals rock punk that has been likened to “Crime meets Viletones meets Styrenes punk” (Z-Gun Magazine) and by WFMU’s DJ Terre T as “a sick combination of Volcano Suns and Blue Cheer and Chain Gang!”
