Houston bassist/songwriter Nick Gaitan is joining us on the Lexus Patio as part of our Live Music Series. He grew up in a working class area of the city where the sounds of Tejano, Country, Swamp Pop, Rock n’ Roll, and Soul all fed into his musical influence from a very young age. From his early days with Los Skarnales, times performing with The Octanes, or years touring with Billy Joe Shaver, Gaitan has played with some of the best in the state and region. With a musical resume like this, it’s hard to corner his playing or style into one genre.

This “Gulf Coast gumbo — a mix of roots rock, swamp pop, blues and Tex-Mex Conjunto”, as described by Jim Beal Jr. of The San Antonio Express-News, is reflected in Gaitan’s original recordings. His Houston-based band “The Umbrella Man” recorded their self-titled album in 2009 and “Bridges and Bayous” in 2012.

A mainstay on the Houston Music scene Since 1999, he has since performed on stages across the USA, Mexico, Canada, Europe, Australia, and South America. Still, as the road goes on forever, something in the song or the sound always brings him back to his hometown of Houston.
