The International Hustlers helped to kick off the legendary Imperial Beach Sun and Sea Festival on July 17th.  With a perfect sunset in the backdrop, the cool evening settled in.  The Hustlers played two sets of modern vintage funk while patrons sat in the park or prepped for the sand castle festival.   Playing in the band that night was Chris Lougeay – Guitar, Charlie Arebelaez – Alto Sax,  Paul Viani – Tenor Sax, Ty Kieran – Congas,  Chris Duvall – Bass and Bryce Giuliani – Drums.   The band played a mixture of funky covers and hip originals.  It featured the amazing improvisational work of both saxophone players, Chris on guitar, and even the drummer got a few spotlights.


The International Hustlers will be at The Layette Hotel Sunday Jazz brunch next.  Sponsored by San Diego jazz radio, 88.3 KSDS, the hotel pool party has quickly become know as one of San Diego’s hippest places to be seen.  The Hustlers will be in the VIP booth poolside from 12-3 on Sunday, August 30th.
