On September 1, 2012, the Latin guitar world fusion group, Incendio, performed at Spaghettini’s in Seal Beach as part of their 2012 tour. Incendio was established in 1999 and has since released seven albums (with an eighth on the way). The members – JP Durand, Jim Stubblefield, Liza CarbĂ©, Nicole Faizone and Brian Brock – come together to create an energetic and exciting performance with unique compositions and excellent playing.

Incendio’s performance at Spaghettini’s featured many of their classic and popular tunes including “Los Rios” and “Misterioso” as well as unexpected titles such as Burt Bacharach’s “Close to You” and Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive.” In addition to a captivating selection of original music and covers, the evening was filled with virtuosic acoustic guitar solos from Jim Stubblefield and JP Durand, skilled percussion and drumming from Nicole Fazione and Brian Brock, while Liza CarbĂ© provided her talents on bass.

With impressive unison guitar licks, Latin-influenced music and a contagious energy, Incendio’s music had the audience dancing in their seats. The night was as entertaining as it was musical.

For those looking for something a little outside the typical instrumental scene, this is a must-see performance. For young artists, they also make a fantastic example of strong stage presence and audience communication. Check out Incendio‘s website to see when they are performing in a venue near you.
