A melting pot of musical styles and proclivities, Blanco is a project spawned from an increasing desire to perform across New Hampshires Seacoast following the start of the pandemic. Consisting of Ryan Farinas (vocals), Matt Oriente (saxophone), Thomas Williams (guitar), Kai Dimuzio (bass), and Shane Jozitis (drums), Blanco got its initial kicks at the Freedom Cafe in the fall of 2020. Farinas background in hip-hop and R&B combined with the rest of the bands studies in jazz and rock result in a sonic smorgasbord offering a little something for everyone who attends a show. The band paints their performances with a bright color palette, effusing exuberance, emotion, and whimsy into the atmosphere each time they take the stage. Their name chosen shortly before their first performance is an ode to their first fan and the band’s official mascot: Farinas white pitbull, Blanco.
