The Tipsy Gypsies

VINTAGE & FUTURE JAZZ, POP, AND BLUES

From the Central Coast of California, the band consists of vocalist Hilary Langdon, guitarist Forrestt Williams, saxophone/clarinetist Laura Foxx, bassist Brian Lanzone, drummer Daryl VanDruff, with additional vocals from the talented Reese Galido.

Live Tipsy Gypsies shows invite audience members to experience the infectious joy felt on-stage. While intermixing favorite tunes new and old with intentional improvised jams, the band engages concert-goers through grooves meant for singing and dancing along.

In both 2017 and 2016, the Tipsy Gypsies won several San Luis Obispo New Times Music Awards, including Best Album, Best Live Band, and Reader’s Choice. The band has felt at home performing on large stages, such as Live Oak Music Festival and SLO Concerts in the Plaza, and also enjoys filling an intimate venue with their full and energized sound. The Tipsy Gypsies have been privileged to support notable acts including the California Honeydrops, Nick Waterhouse, and Sure Fire Soul Ensemble.

Their most recent album, Waiting, combines eclectic and familiar influences into a tightly-crafted release showcasing Langdon’s recognizable vocals, Williams’ retro guitar sound, and some of the best musicians on California’s Central Coast.
