Gaucho United States
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 Pete Devine 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 Reinhardt 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.
