This article has been updated and revised to reflect a schedule change.The music of Italian guitar stallion Don Diego is rooted in his Tele's trademark twang. Whether boppin' the bottom end to a trucker tune, or swinging something sweet, Diego and his trio never disappoint. The man is a crooner, too, so just in case, you'd better hold on to your date. Or better yet, don't bring a real cute one...just to be safe. We don't wanna start an international incident here. And as an added bonus, The Lustre Kings' guitar player and recent Ameripolitan Award winner Mark Gamsjager will be making the scene with his big white guitar.
The Don Diego Trio will be unable to perform due to travel restrictions enforced in Italy due to the coronavirus. The trio's bassist, Luca Chiappara, will perform with guitarist Mark Gamsjager of The Lustre Kings and drummer Todd Bradley of The Hi-Risers on Monday, March 9, 7:30 p.m. at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $10. 232-3230. abilenebarandlounge.com; facebook.com/dondiegoproject.
