Week 3 of the Ridgway Summer Concert Series

Orgone is a synergy of eight musicians, at the core of which are keyboardist Dan Hastie and guitarist Sergio Rios, who have been chiseling their distinctively timeless sound since their teens. Each band member shines in his own right, but together their chemistry results in a sweeping sound more tenacious than the sum of its considerable parts.
