Gypsy Star A unique band from the Tampa Bay area of Florida, Gypsy Star artfully fuses original indie folk rock with rhythms from around the world. Imagine if Fleetwood Mac, Blackmore’s Night and the Gipsy Kings got together to form a new band… it might sound very much like Gypsy Star. With their eclectic instrumentation of classical flamenco guitar, violin, bass, drums and an array of hand percussion along with sultry pop vocals and melodic harmonies, Gypsy Star weaves a colorful tapestry of enchanting, uplifting music. The mystique behind this dynamic folk rock band's songs lie at the creative hand of guitarist/composer Billy Keen who merges his own musical roots in American rock, folk and blues with a more global influence tapping into Spanish, Celtic, Renaissance, Mediterranean, Caribbean and Latin flavors. A serendipitous collaboration with long time bandmate, vocalist/percussionist Belinda Brodsky, breathes poetry into Keen’s tunes with lyrics that capture the essence of ancient tales, the insight of modern storytelling and the charm of timeless, heartfelt sentiments. Rounding out Gypsy Star's signature sound are musically-gifted bandmates Steve Roberts on bass, Kana Leimbach on drums. Steve and Kana’s pairing makes for a tight, melodic and percussive rhythm section. The band is joined by Dawn Cunningham on Violin. Gypsy Star has headlined at various music festivals and plays to enthusiastic crowds at theaters, concert halls, and listening rooms. Their musical performances have been featured on television and radio. In 2016 Gypsy Star went back in the studio to record their new album, "Under The Moonlit Night" which was released in January 2017. https://www.facebook.com/gypsystarband/.
w/ American Song Box American Song Box is a five piece powerhouse Americana/Rock group of eclectic artists, writers, and musicians with a focus on diverse material and great live shows. Todd Murphy on guitar, RJ Kerker on piano, Chris Evans on drums, Angelique Roesch on violin, and Clif Roesch on bass, deliver a hard hitting performance each time they take the stage. By harnessing the original essence of sound and utilising the rhythm of life at seven beats per second, ASB projects a raw and uninhibited emotion that the human spirit is subconciously attracted to while adhering to the chemical responses of individual synapses that are connected to the invisible and universal guidelines that animate and bind all things. Since their inception in 2009, they've released four albums: The Rift 2011, What It Is 2013, What Is And Never Was 2016, The Bottom 2017, and now begin work on their fifth project, Gallery, this May 2018. Their single, Play With Love, off of their 2016 LP What Is And Never Was, was chosen for placement in the 2017 Independent Feature Film, #WANDERLUST. . https://www.facebook.com/americansongbox/
