Gringo Jingo is the new project of several veteran live musicians currently gigging in the Baltimore area. The band is the brainchild of Steve Reed who has been playing “serious” lead guitar for 35 years. By “serious”, we mean he
is fresh off the Vegas live music scene, playing regular gigs at casinos and showrooms in sin city. His resume includes a national tour with “Sir Rod,” a wildly popular Rod Stewart Tribute act. He’s opened for Molly Hatchet, Motorhead, and
the Guess Who.
A Baltimore area native, Steve is back on the east coast playing in three cover bands that regularly play live venues around Maryland, two of which have been gigging since the 1980’s. He tapped several other veteran musicians to form
Gringo Jingo. This eight-piece band includes Jon Seligman on percussion. He teaches his craft as a professor at McDaniel College. Vocalist Abby Otradovec has been fronting bands in the Baltimore area for over 20 years. She is the fiery singer for popular Baltimore bands Problem Child and Scarlet Angel. Together, this band has over 100yrs of stage experience. This is no garage band.
These seasoned musicians have the talent, chemistry, and presence to woo over audiences of nearly any demographic. The show comes with the serious instrumentation needed to reproduce the rich, velvety smooth sounds of Carlos Santana. Why Santana? His music appeals to a wide audience. Classics like “Black Magic Woman” and “Evil Ways” and contemporary hits like “Smooth” and “Maria Maria” draw a diverse crowd. People of all ages and backgrounds really get into Santana and Gringo Jingo performs his material with a party-like exuberance. No one will be sitting by the end of the set!
Our show is family friendly and great for outdoor festivals and our indoor act
transforms the room with great Latin vibes. We provide sound and lighting
whenever necessary. Any questions? Just call or email us.
