Occidental Gypsy CD Release

An exhilarating blend of gypsy swing, jazz and world music

Occidental Gypsy enraptures the listener with a complex acoustic sound, burnished by smooth vocals reminiscent of the first era of swing.

Their music cannot be easily classified; a bit of jazz, a catchy strain of blues, a seismic swing experience, and “a whole lotta’ gypsified groove…”

 

 

THE LINEUP
Brett Feldman: lead guitar, composer, co-arranger
Eli Bishop: all strings, co-arranger
Jeremy Frantz: lead vocals & rhythm guitar
Jeff Feldman: bass
Jon Chapman: percussion

Well known as capable heirs and nouveau pioneers of the music of Django Reinhardt, they have been featured at the biggest DjangoFests in the US and have shared the stage with greats like Rikki Lee Jones, Jorma Kaukenen, Stanley Jordan, Joe Sample, and David Bromberg.

“These guys have great singing, fantastic guitar and violin work, and high energy originals that leave the crowd crazy. An awesome band.” – David Bromberg

The band features Eli Bishop, a Nashville prodigy who recently won 1st Place in the Mississippi Fiddle Championships. 25 year-old Bishop stuns crowds with his lightning-fast and emotional violin.

Lead guitarist and composer Brett Feldman drives the sound with masterful gypsy swing guitar.

Jeremy Frantz — a protege of legendary jazz guitarist Joe Negri— brings his sultry, “retro” vocals and expert jazz guitar to the front line, and serves as an exquisite counterpoint to the down-and-dirty driving sound brought by Brett.

Percussionist Jon Chapman and bassist Jeff Feldman fill out the band’s rich sound and keep crowds moving with beats and complex rhythms that make their audience keep coming back for more.
