Occidental Gypsy

This show has been cancelled.

Occidental Gypsy takes the gypsy swing of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli, and adds their own mix of world music, jazz, rock, and pop. David Bromberg calls them “an awesome band” and praises their “great singing, fantastic guitar and violin work, with high energy originals that leave the crowd crazy.” The website Milwaukee Express says that they sound like “they could have roamed the night clubs of old Havana and Rio as well as the cafes of Paris,” and declares them “a kick to hear.”
 
The band features Brett Feldman on lead guitar, brother Jeff Feldman on bass, Eli Bishop on violin, Erick Cifuentes on percussion, and Jonathan Hurley on rhythm guitar and lead vocals. They’ve shared the stage with such artists as Rikki Lee Jones, Jorma Kaukenen, Stanley Jordan, Joe Sample, and Tony Rice, and been featured in the Boston Globe. Their debut album, Over Here, includes several exhilarating originals and a killer version of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Tonight’s show is a great chance to get out on the dance floor and swing to a band that’s charming, entertaining, and fun!
