From stripped down, gritty hillbilly sounds to slinky swamp ballads, the Bourgeois Gypsies hold true to the old Gypsy proverb “Stay where there are songs”. Shades of country, blues, and soul with a twist of Bakersfield can be heard throughout, but the result is a sound uniquely their own. Think back porch music full of sing-along choruses and edgy riffs.
Since the release of their second studio album Faulty Fairytales, the Bourgeois Gypsies have received extensive airplay on over 200 stations in the US. Faulty Fairytales was on the Relix Jambands charts for over 6 months in 2009 reaching # 4 in February. They were also in the top 25 of the FAR Charts (Freeform Americana Radio). They have played live
radio spots from San Antonio to San Francisco, including KPIG & KSYM and sharing live broadcasts with bands such as Hot Buttered Rum & Ramblin’ Jack Elliot.
Touring behind the CD, they’ve played festivals including North by Northeast (Toronto, ON), Midpoint Music Festival (Cincinnati, OH), High Sierra Music Festival (Quincy, CA), World United Music Festival (San Marcos, TX), Harmony Festival (Santa Rosa, CA) & The Whole Earth Festival (Davis, CA), sharing the stage with Poor Man’s Whiskey,
Bonerama, Lubriphonic, The Duhks and more.
They were also invited to perform at the Songwriters in the Round at High Sierra 2009 with members of ALO, Big Light and Raina Rose.
They’ve headlined clubs throughout the West including The Saxon Pub (Austin, TX), Cervantes (Denver, CO), The Belly Up (Aspen, CO) and Don Quixote’s (Felton, CA) and opened for numerous acts.
The Bourgeois Gypsies are currently at work on their third CD, due out in 2012.

What people are saying…
"This album has a real “down-to-earth” quality, as these songs showcase rustic roots, a pioneering spirit, and offer a brew steeped in blues and dripping with poignant observations. The resulting musical concoction is charming and well-delivered." Home Grown Music Network
"The Bourgeois Gypsies play folk and twangy music in the same way that the Grateful Dead or Donna the Buffalo play bluegrass. Yeah, you can hear the elements of the genre in there, but that's just a base for a sound that's all their own." Taproot Radio
