Headed up by local music icon Nick Gaitan, Umbrella Man is a quintessentially Houston band that mixes and matches the variety of Gulf Coast genres that find a musical home in this region. The group’s thumping bass, bright reedy accordion and ringing steel guitar blend in surprising but always recognizable ways. Country, rockabilly, zydeco and conjunto are all part of the sound and song writing and the swinging, dance-oriented traditions that infuse their repertoire. Nico Diaz creates a jazzy (and at times, even bluesy) kind of Latin Rock that carries clear influences from Latin Folk and Nova Trova.
