Wedding Reception in Fort Worth, TX on 10/20/2012
"What an awesome band! Everyone at our reception was amazed! I am very glad we hired them! Our event would not have been as much fun as it was and everyone loved it! Perfection in every way! "

Wedding in Denton, TX on 09/13/2008
"The Texas Gypsies were incredible! I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. The guests had a great time dancing.. the band is a crowd-pleaser for all age groups. They are wonderfully talented; our guests are still talking about what a great job they did. On top of everything, they let my aging grandfather sit with them and play a few songs, which was incredibly special to my family. I would very highly recommend The Texas Gypsies to anyone!!!"

Wedding in Austin, TX on 02/17/2007
"In a word...FABULOUS! These guys gave us just the sound we needed for our fun Prohibition-theme wedding. It is now two weeks later, and all we keep hearing is "Man, that band was fantastic!" They are worth the asking price (which is very reasonable to begin with!) Steve Curry is a great guy and very easy to deal with. I would recommend them without any reservations."

"We definitely recommend hiring the Texas Gypsies for your event! They played at our wedding reception and were amazing. So many people told us they loved their music. We really enjoyed dancing to their songs. They were wonderful to work with--on time, easy going, announced the cake cutting and first dance, took requests! They were fantastic! "

"The Texas Gypsies are AMAZING! They sound even better live than they do in their recordings, and how often does THAT happen? Steve was fantastic at handling the business details with me, and the band absolutely killed during their performance at the wedding. Thanks again, guys!"

Corporate Function in Dallas, TX on 12/04/2007
"The Texas Gypsies were OUTSTANDING! Very talented musicians...very easy to work with. We have a small cafeteria, so we aim to keep volume low, and they were very accomodating and the strings are perfect for our setting.
The variety was great. Their style of music was a welcome change from typical country or top 40. I will strongly recommend these guys for other events.
Very professional, top notch performers. They were prompt for all 3 gigs (within 24 hours!).

Wedding in Dallas, TX on 06/02/2007
"We were both extremely impressed by the band and really enjoyed the music. Even more telling was the number of comments we had from guests as we walked around during the reception.
The band is extremely talented and the music they played for us was perfect. They played two songs for us that weren't on their regular set list, and both were great.
We found these guys through Gigmasters, and were really pleased with their performance and professionalism. Anybody who likes well played gypsy, Dawg, or music that isn't cookie cutter will love these guys.
