Playing primarily music that was popular before they were born, The Gypsy Flats give the songs penned by the likes of John Prine, Neil Young, Kris Kristofferson and John Fogerty a special touch creating their own sound. Each member of the band brings a unique ingredient to the mix to create the perfect recipe for an entertaining evening.
The Gypsy Flats consists of Cassy Dube, lead singer and rhythm guitar player backed by Marc Gauthier on bass, Ryan Smith on drums and vocals along with Mike Beauchamp on lead guitar and vocals.
In their playlist are also several original songs. Currently they are booked to play at several of the upcoming summer festivals such as the Kinsmen Ribfest July 8, headlining Bridge Bash Friday July 21 and Beats on the Street July 22. Once the busy summer season is over, the hope is to concentrate on collaborating on more material with the intent of having enough to put out a CD.
Watch for details of the CD release on both Cheeky Monkey website and The Gypsy Flats Facebook page along with more live dates announced as they are booked.
