Last updated 8/2/2022 at Noon
Bend-based Latin dance rock band !Chiringa!, will make its first appearance at Angeline’s Bakery in over a decade on Friday, August 5, at 7 p.m., throwing down tropical covers and original funk rock fusion Latin music. The show features special guest Samuel Thompson from Los Angeles on trumpet.
!Chiringa! is a four-piece Latin dance rock band that aims to unite people of all backgrounds and spread the love of Latin music. With a smokin’ rhythm section and strong female lead vocals, !Chiringa! conjures up passion, joy, and irresistible dance rhythms at high-energy shows. Puerto Rican-Iranian singer/guitarist and songwriter Shireen Amini fronts the band, and is supported by her favorite gringos, Johnny Riordan on percussion, Tom Freedman on bass, and Matthew Williams on drums.
The band’s debut album, “Familia,” was released in the summer of 2017. They currently are working on a new wave of original material for their second album.
Cover charge is $5-$10 on a sliding scale. Angeline’s Bakery is located at 121 W. Main Ave. in Sisters.
