The Tip­sy Gyp­sies blend Pop and Blues with a dance­able and dis­tinc­tive Jazz sound.

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.
