Performing over 100 shows a year from concerts to weddings to private events, this band was formed by experienced professional musicians including GRAMMY winners and musicians from many famous recording artists and has established itself as a Classy, Unique and Fun group perfect for any event.
They perform all over the USA from local events, to concert tours in the USA, to international shows for events as far away as Dubai! They were selected to the Texas state and Midwest Touring Rosters in 2008 and have remained on it ever since. Through this award, a grant may be available to city governments and non profits from the state to fund a Texas Gypsies performance!
From solo musicians to a 9pc band, The Texas Gypsies have performed for hundreds of events: concerts, festivals, wedding receptions, corporate events, fundraisers and more.
They are also perfect for the popular 1920's Great Gatsby themed, Old Hollywood or speakeasy events too with our large 20's-30's-40's music repertoire and authentic vintage costumed look!
The band is actually able to perform many styles so it is more like what can't they play! From BIG BAND standards (Sinatra,Buble), Classic hit songs from 20's-70's, Gypsy Jazz (Django) , WESTERN SWING (Bob Wills), New Orleans Jazz, Classic Rock and Pop, Rockabilly and more! We also add in a female singer for more dance music if needed!
They can start an event playing jazzy swing music and could also play pop, rock and dance music later if needed.
Some of the artists our band members have played with are: The Jacksons, Wings, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Texas Playboys, Wynton Marsalis, Tony Bennett, Barbara Mandrell, Blues Brothers and many more!!
