Formed in June of 2014, Gin Gypsy is a five-piece band from the Skagit Valley comprised of veteran musicians/members (current and former) of other local bands such as Bare Feet, Fanny Alger, Red Rocket and The Saturday Saints.
Their primary musical focus is geared toward tunes with a swing and rockabilly (heavy on the rock) vibe but their growing set list includes a few other danceable songs just for kicks.
Some of Gin Gypsy’s important musical influences include Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Gin Wigmore, Imelda May, Reverend Horton Heat, Stray Cats, Susan Tedeschi and Wanda Jackson.
The Gin Gypsy ensemble features Michelle Montoya on lead vocals, JW Couey on guitar/vocals, Jesse Eldridge on stand-up and electric bass/vocals, Marci Gaudio-Cotton on piano/organ/backing vocals and Sonny Brown on drums/vocals. Check them out, join the “Cult of Gypsy” and prepare yourself for a rockin’ good time!
