Jeff DeMark and LaPatina Band

Word Slinging and Music Blended Together: Stories, poems and songs.

Jeff DeMark has been writing and performing for 40 years now. He started in Madison, Wisconsin, his home state, doing poetry readings then quicky added music into the mix. He has collaborated with such musicians as the Violent Femmes, Paul Cebar and the Milwaukeeans and LaPatina Band. He has written five solo/storytelling shows and performed them around country and locally. Three of the shows debuted at Dell'Arte's Mad River Festival to sold out houses.

The LaPatina band has been playing around the county for a couple years now with a group of veteran musicians. The band is composed of Jake Wiegandt on guitar, Jim Hatchimonji on violin, Brian Powell on stand-up bass, Paul DeMark on percussion, Neil McLaughlin on guitar and Jeff DeMark on guitar.

La Musique Diabolique

La Musique Diabolique came together in the fall of 2011 through the Humboldt State University Music Department. The group is composed of Drew McGowan on violin, Dan Fair and Kris Lang on guitars and Brian Hennesy on bass. The band’s name is taken from posters created by the French government in the 1920s and 30s propagandizing early jazz as “La Musique Diabolique.” The group’s music is based in the gypsy jazz style pioneered by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in the 1930s, and their repertoire includes some standards from that genre, as well as originals and creative arrangements of songs drawn from a number of styles, including film music, calypso, and jazz classics. La Musique Diabolique recently released their first full length album, which explores a variety of musical textures with a relatively limited instrumentation of four stringed instruments, as opposed to more traditional jazz ensembles consisting of drums, piano, and horns.
