Join us this summer for a series of concerts in our beautiful Redwood Grove!

Music, food, cocktails, and auction to benefit the Garden!

Gaucho, a gypsy jazz sextet, was formed in 2002. The lineup consists of Dave Ricketts & Michael Groh on guitars, Ari Munkres on standup bass, Rob Reich on accordion, Ralph Carney on horns, and Beth Goodfellow on drums & percussion.

On occasion, guest artists bring their own spice to the mix. While we base much of our repertoire in the music of Django Reinhart and the gypsy jazz of 1930s Europe, we also find inspiration in the rhythmic drive and collective improvisation of New Orleans swing music and the “gut bucket” sound. Gaucho is a first-rate ensemble, playing the music we love with boundless energy, passion, and humor.

Ticket includes admission to the Garden before 5:00PM. BYO picnic and non-alcoholic drinks welcome.
