Grupo Arcano

Happy summer!  We are looking forward to having an eventful summer, and an even more exciting fall.

Danny Diaz: Bassist turned Manager

Before we get into what we’ve got in store, please join us in wishing Grupo Arcano co-founder and bassist Danny Diaz all the best in his transition from bass player to manager. Over the years, Danny’s interests have shifted from laying down bass lines to setting up and promoting our shows, as well as lining up performance opportunities for us beyond the US!

Although it’s sad that we won’t see him on the bandstand, we’re all glad to have Danny helping us out behind the scenes.

Big Shoes to Fill

As you are aware, being the bass player in Arcano is a huge responsibility, and it isn’t for the faint of heart. There aren’t many who can step into the role, but one man has…

We are happy to announce the arrival of Abraham Saenz, an internationally touring bassist who joined us on a few tracks on Desde el otro Lado del East River (CD Baby). We are so excited that Abraham is now a permanent member of the Arcano family, that we couldn’t help but book a performance to show him off as soon as possible…

July 1st – Live at Taj Lounge in NYC

That’s right, we’re playing a special performance at Taj (here) Monday, July 1st. We start playing at 8:00pm, but you can show up a little earlier for salsa dancing lessons. It’s going to be an after-work party.

If that’s not enough to entice you, how about this: if you mention that you are there to see Grupo Arcano at the door, you pay a discounted cover of ONLY $10!

Grupo Arcano in Germany, Colombia, Canada, and France?

Without exception, everyone who has heard us play La Rutina Del Mujeriego (see the video), has asked us to record it and the other new tunes prepared. We are getting requests from DJs, promoters, and fans from all over the world.

We are hard at work to make this possible, and soon you will be able to join us on the endeavor. In the coming months, lookout for a new crowd funding campaign that would enable us to come to your town, no matter where you live!

Since asking for your help to make Desde…such a success, we have received an overwhelming amount of love and support from you, our fans, friends, and families. Soon you will be able to join us on our next step of bringing Arcano overseas.

What’s Next?

Stay in touch with us through our website or facebook to watch our first music video! It’s in the works, and you don’t want to miss it.

In the meantime, we hope to see you at one of our next few shows. Don’t be shy, we’d love for you to come talk with us after the show or during our breaks. Bring your copy of our CD, we’ll all sign it for you!
