Nationally recognized Occidental Gypsy is pioneering the sound of World Gypsy music and delivers an exhilarating blend of gypsy swing, jazz and world music with a roaring acoustic sound.
Their mélange of uptempo, high-energy rhythms of gypsy swing, melded with the catchy melodic hooks of pop and complex structures of jazz delivers a thrilling auditory experience to listeners.
Coming off a recent tour with Wynton Marsalis, Occidental’s violinist prodigy Eli Bishop rouses audiences with his expert, lightning-fast violin. Occidental Gypsy plays a dynamic, multi-genre mix of original vocal and instrumental pieces along with many notable covers like a “gypsyfied” take of Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
The Boston Globe has named them a “Best Bet for Weekend Entertainment,” and musician David Bromberg said of the group, “great singing, fantastic guitar and violin work, with high energy originals that leave the crowd crazy. An awesome band.”
