Gypsy Star
Uniquely blending the musical styles of folk, rock, pop and a bit of classical and jazz with sounds from around the world, the original music of Gypsy Star weaves a colorful melodic tapestry of enchanting, uplifting tunes brought to life with vocal harmonies and acoustic instruments such as classical guitar, bass and an array of hand percussion.
“All the world’s music in one band… Gypsy Star tours the folk music of multiple continents. Theirs is a tightly woven Persian rug of a performance.”… Tampa Bay Arts & Education Network

Gypsy Star has headlined at various music festivals and plays to enthusiastic crowds at theaters, listening rooms and intimate house concerts. They have toured the east coast of the United States from Florida to New England with performances at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall, the Florida Folk Festival, Andrea Clearfield’s Salon in Philadelphia, Stage 72 in New York City as well as Daryl’s House in upstate New York and The Tin Pan in Richmond, Virginia among others.  They have also opened for a variety of acts including Heart, Todd Rundgren, Steely Dan, Wynona, Benise among others.

Their musical performances have been featured on television shows and radio stations in the Tampa area as well as on internet radio. Notably, their song “Mistress Moon” placed at #2 on Florida’s WMTB 96.7 list of the Top 100 Songs of both 2014 and 2015 with their song “Bossa” now in that spot.

Gypsy Star has compiled an accomplished catalog of tunes with three CDs of original music to their credit, their debut album, “Gypsy Star” released in 2007, “Once In A Dream,” released in 2011 and their single ~ a charming musical tale rendered in a Renaissance/Celtic style, “The Tale Of The Mistletoe” released in 2014.  A new album is in the finishing stages with plans for a 2016 mid-summer release.
