Mucca Pazza is the marching band that thinks it's a rock band.  They began seven years ago as an 8-piece group rehearsing in a lot next to the Finkle and Sons Steel Foundry in Chicago and have grown into a 30-piece force to be reckoned with.  They've played benefits for West Town Bikes, Co-op Image, The Public Media Institute, Young Chicago Authors, Iraq Veterans Against the War, as well as large-scale festivals, tiny-scale clubs, parades, street performances, and on the Chicago River in a dozen canoes.  They are proud to be playing a benefit for the Logan Square Neighborhood Association this fall.

There's drama when Ami Saraiya and her band, The Outcome, take the stage.  It's a dark atmosphere, but it swings baby-a worldly staging of folk punk and jazzcabaret.  And amongst the accordion, the violin and the guitars, it's Ami's sultry voice that recalls Piaf and Holiday which takes the spotlight.  Then, there are the song-stories-often saturnine, often employing magical realism.

Fandanguero is the name of a hummingbird species that inhabits the woods in Veracruz, Mexico.  The foundation of Fandanguero originated from Son Jarocho, a traditional musical style of Veracruz, Mexico is called Sotavento.  It represents a fusion of indigenous (primarily Huastecan), Spanish, and African musical elements, reflecting the population which evolved in the region from Spanish colonial times. The instrumentation consists of traditional acoustic instruments: jarana, requinto, quijada de burro (donkey jaw) and caj-n from Peru and non-traditional instruments: acoustic guitar, electric bass, congas and pandeiro.
