Tesoro – Art highly prized for its beauty and perfection.
Not many bands can live up to such a description. But in the case of Tucson based band, Tesoro, not only is this accurate, but it's the only way to describe the myriad of styles and talent that make up this outstanding group.
Equally comfortable on a dark stage in a bar, during the beating heat of a street fair, at weddings or corporate affairs, a Tesoro show is a provocative experience. Catchy original compositions, new takes on classics and the ability to entertain those from age 8 to 80, all combine to make Tesoro one of the most exciting bands currently playing around the Southwest.
A fusion of flamenco, rock, pop, rumba and cumbia guitars is the main focus of Tesoro. Founding members Brian Scott and Justin Fernandez long ago surpassed the label of prodigy and have now taken this music to an entirely new level. It is simply impossible to listen to the music created by these talented men and not find yourself dancing. With Gabriel Kaiser on the drums, channeling the power of Bonham and the delicate skills of Ginger Baker, and bassist Andrew McClarron building intricate baselines like an Escher painting, Tesoro creates music that mesmerizes, makes one smile and goes in directions no one expects. In front of these seasoned musicians is new front man, Efisio Giordanelli. The Venezuelan born singer was the final piece needed for the Tesoro puzzle. With a confidence that far exceeds his experience, a subtle charisma and charming stage presence, Efisio adds percussive elements, and dancing lessons in addition to his engaging vocals.
Each band member of Tesoro shines when it comes to their instrument. But the whole piece is so much bigger than the sum of its parts when it comes to this group. Their diversity and unique personalities bring a musical background and influences that creates a fusion of sound sure to inspire the soul.
"There is nothing better than Tesoro live. I have hired Tesoro often over the years. When I do, I know I am getting three things: excellent music, dependable and professional musicians, excitement and anticipation amongst my guests. From private parties to corporate events and community fundraisers, Tesoro's name on an invitation guarantees a good time and buzz. At the end of the night, I always look forward to my next opportunity to see them perform."
-Dev Sethi, Tucson
"They don't just perform for the crowd, Tesoro has a way of interacting and touching their audience. Even in the presence of a huge group they still have a way of making it feel like they are performing just for you. Viva Tesoro!"
