An intense psycho-mambo party band, bringing fire and brass, lascivious guitars and rousing percussion, into intimate sweaty clubs and festival stages alike.  Gato Loco has been bringing their unique schizoid energy from New York City around the world for years, embracing an all-encompassing sound of irreverence, rebellion, and abandon that defies place or time.

It’s comprised of an all-star group of musicians, individually having played and/or recorded with Vampire Weekend, Zola Jesus, Lauren Hill, The Violent Femmes, Dillinger Escape Plan, Wheatus, Zakir Hussain, T.S. Monk, Brazilian Girls, Slavic Soul Party, Father John Misty, to name just a few.

“Brimming with enthusiasm, like the orgasmic lovemaking between James Brown and Tito Puente.” (De Volkskrant, NL)
