4 Pm Art Auction/ 6 PM Awards Dinner/8 PM Dancing begins with Dgiin! Imagine Dire Strait's Mark Knoffler's deep, rasping vocals overlaying a colorful tapestry of eclectic musical influences interwoven with dense patterns of lilting reggae, funk & Cajun guitar grooves; propulsive world-music bass & drum rhythms; & accented with a bright shimmering thread of effervescent Dixie-land tenor sax, & you'll have some idea of what Dgiin (pronounced like “gin”), sounds like. Dgiin winningly describes their music as “French Gypsy Funk,” which seems to be fairly apt. Gabe, the lead singer/guitarist grew up in France, where the music scene is richly influenced by North & West Africa.
