Four unique acts play an eclectic mix of r&b/soul, electronic, funk and rock music to a familiar crowd.
For those who are regulars at these types of events, I don’t need to tell you about Bello Bar. To those who aren’t, we’re talking shaggy carpet and a low ceiling basement. Tables with wax laden gin bottles acting as candlestick holders. A non-raised stage area with fairy lights draped over the microphone. Orange amplifiers. Frayed lampshades that prettify dimly lit corners. It’s easy to become ensconced in Bello Bar’s intimate and evocative surroundings.
As I grab a seat by the wall, Argentinian musician, Facundo Di Giorgio, begins to warm the crowd with 80s blues rock on lead guitar. Going full throttle with note-bending on the whammy bar, he also runs Olympic rings around the fretboard.
