El Radio Fantastique at Milagros

 Posted: 2:00 AM April 03, 2014

Singer and accordion player Giovanni DiMorente founded El Radio Fantastique, a group from Point Reyes, Calif., that is influenced by New Orleans jazz and rock 'n' roll. The band's moniker was born out of folklore told by DiMorente's family. His great-grandfather told him the story of a radio that played beautiful music and methodically drove its listeners insane.

El Radio Fantastique — Colin Schlitt on upright bass, Robin Livingston on piano, Loyal Tarbet on clarinet, Gene Fisher on drums, Jade Ismail on trombone and Patrick Byers on baritone saxophone — emulate a cabaret show in their performances, dressing in costumes pieced together from '20s and '30s fashion, marching band uniforms and sailors' garb. El Radio Fantastique will play at 9 p.m. Friday, April 4, at Milagros Fresh Mexican, 1465 Siskiyou Blvd., Ashland. The cover costs $10.
