Rollicking, genre-transcending, Rock N Roll delivered by four guys who love their craft. With three part vocal harmonies, driving guitar and bass riffs, their songs are powerful and intense, yet simple and honest. The Gypsies released “Killin’ Time” on July 1st 2017, not long after they were deemed one of the “Three Best Unsigned Bands in the USA” by JBL, and right before they became Grand Prize Winners of the 2017 Michigan State Fair Superstar contest. In early 2018, the band received two Detroit Music awards for Best Americana Act and Best Americana Recording for “Killin’ Time”. With their 2018 release, “Vagabundos”, the band has toured nationally along with releasing videos for “Walking Trouble” and “Freaks & Nonbeleivers”.
The first iteration of the Gasoline Gypsies was an acoustic, three piece Folk/Rock act, that honed the Gypsies penchant for crisp harmonies, and grown up lyrics. The departure of their percussion man, resulted in meeting drummer, Joe Makowski, an unabashed rock and roller whose style begged that the gypsies plug in and test their rock chops. Electrified, Caleb’s front man guitar skills blossomed. Their growth process eventually led to the addition of Neal Love. Neal’s ability to understand that he brings the missing piece to this team, makes The Gasoline Gypsies a group that reverently respects the art of the music, while unleashing all that we love about rock and roll.
Caleb and Neal play their guitars like they’ve been playing together for years , both adding elements of lead and rhythms that play off each other uniquely. Steve’s bass lines range from subtle to funky, and Joe on the kit drives the wagon with hard hitting drum licks.
The Gasoline Gypsies work hard. Their considerable effort to play rock and roll in the spirit that respects the art of songwriting results in a seemingly effortless stage performance that is thrilling, and fun.
