We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Diego’s Umbrella’s new music video for their song “Old Vienna” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s album Edjka , which is available for purchase through Hardline Entertainment.
The band commented on the video:
“The idea for the ‘Old Vienna’ video came from director Raymond Cinemato, the captain of this ship. He heard the song and wrote the script for the video, we loved it and everybody just went to work. Vaughn basically took on the role of producer and Jekyns came on as choreographer. From there we added great actors, dancers, camera masters, make up, wardrobe, lighting, carpenters etc. So much talent and hard work went into this, we really couldn’t be more grateful and proud.
So let’s break the bottle across the bough of this ship and set it to sea. Vienna is ready to go and we are loving it, hope you do too!”

About the band:
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love Diego’s Umbrella and those who don’t know them yet. Celebrated as San Francisco’s ambassadors of Gypsy Rock, these world-renowned entertainers have created an irresistible mélange that is entirely their own.
A Diego’s Umbrella show is a singular, ecstatic experience. One concert is all it takes to becoming a believer. Night after night they effortlessly blend eastern European sounds, marching drums, beautiful harmonies and catchy hooks with a showmanship that has all the fire and unpredictability of youth, marked by a chiseled refinement of years of experience on the road.
The group’s uncanny gift for pleasing crowds, from standard clubs to huge festivals such as High Sierra and Outside Lands, has earned them a zealous and ever-expanding following across the United States and Europe. Continuously touring abroad has always fed their aesthetic, and has resulted in incorporating the scales of klezmer, the strings of flamenco, and the energy of punk rock.
Their new material is some of the most exciting to date, tipping a hat to the raucous Croatian dance parties the band played in their early days. With a quest to fulfill and broadcast the true meaning of Gypsy Rock, Diego’s Umbrella continues to tour the world.
