Local Latin fusion band ¡Chiringa! will be celebrating the release of their first album entitled “Familia” and you are all invited to the party! The band will be performing in their fullest incarnation, a 6-piece which includes Samuel Thompson from Los Angeles on trumpet and keys and Heather Fossmo on backup vocals. The band will perform all their original music from the album as well as everyone’s favorite dance covers. Andrés ‘Andy’ García of Latin Dance Bend will be teaching a lesson from 8-8:30pm to warm up the night. Latin Dance Bend will also grace the night with beautiful dance performances during the set break. Doors open at 7pm and a light dinner will be provided by Hola! Restaurant, so come hungry! Drinks will be available for purchase at the Altar Café. You can’t have an album which translates to “family” and not have a family-friendly event, so please bring the whole gang, young ones are welcome!
But the most exciting part of the event?? This evening will be your first chance to purchase ¡Chiringa!’s brand new album! You will have the option of buying a physical CD or a download card. 10% of all album sales from the evening will be donated to Rise Up International, an organization dedicated to building community through music and art. Do not miss this epic party with special treats and great causes all around!
Message from ¡Chiringa!…
We cannot tell you how grateful we are to the Central Oregon community for your strong support from the beginning. We could not have made it this far without your love and support and we especially could not have brought an album to completion without you! We continue to be so honored and grateful to play this music and share joy with you all. May the this album be an offering of gratitude to our local community and beyond. Now let’s all get down like one big familia!

Alan Munde and Adam Granger, two veterans of the Americana-acoustic music scene, will appear at the Old Stone on August 19, 2017. Between them, they have almost a century of professional experience, and have played with many of the greats of American music, including Jimmy Martin, Clarence and Roland White, Byron Berline, and Garrison Keillor.
Adam was a charter member of the “Powdermilk Biscuit Band” on A Prairie Home Companion; he appeared on the show 170 times over nearly 40 years. More than 20 years after publication, his Granger’s Fiddle Tunes for Guitar remains a classic reference tool for guitar pickers.
Alan played with Jimmy Martin for two years before joining Country Gazette where he played with legends Roland White and Byron Berline. Alan taught music at South Plains College with his colleague Joe Carr for over 20 years. Alan is considered one of the world’s best banjo instructors and continues to teach workshops nationally and internationally.
Alan’s flawless and tasteful banjo technique combined with Adam’s wonderful rhythm guitar and vocals provides a relaxed and seamless show of great music seasoned with a dash of down home humor and wit. Adam’s Go Home and Practice is a wonderful homily to all amateur musicians. Alan’s tune Molly Bloom is not named after the character in James Joyce’s Ulysses who delivered a two-sentence, multi-thousand word soliloquy that voices the final episode. Rather, Alan knew a dog named Molly Bloom that lived next door to the site of a regular jam in Norman, OK. The dog’s owner taught English at Oklahoma University. One must wonder if the dog barked nonstop.
Opening for the show is the well-known Portland-area bluegrass band The Loafers featuring Dave Elliott, Steve Reischman, Mike Stahlman, Aaron Stocek, and Dee Johnson. For more than a decade this group has been entertaining audiences at live shows and festivals around Oregon and Washington.
