After a great start with Steff Mahan just a week ago, now it will ThunderGypsy’s turn to excite the audience. In less than 2 weeks, on April 13, the 2017 ATLANTA BLUES CHALLENGE WINNER and invited participant in the 2018 International Blues Challenge in Memphis will take the stage. Just 5 years ago the stars aligned and 4 musicians with similar tastes in music and attitude towards performance found each other and formed ThunderGypsy. They have been captivating audiences ever since! ThunderGypsy’s sound can best be described as soulful rocking Blues, covering an eclectic mix of music that spans the decades. The spirit of the Gypsy’s is evident in their music as they take you on a musical road trip from Atlanta’s Southern Soul to the rockin’ Blues in Macon, from the classic sound of the Memphis Blues along the streets of New Orleans’ French Quarter and even up to Chicago and St. Louis for their rocking electric Blues. By taking many familiar songs and intensifying the arrangements, ThunderGypsy has been mesmerizing Atlanta audiences since its inception. Folks often say they’ve never seen a band having so much fun playing together as ThunderGypsy does! With Ken Williams on drums, Richard Price on guitar, Paul Allison on keyboard and organ and Heather Statham on vocals, this quartet delivers a full sound guaranteed to delight your ears and keep you dancing and grooving all night long!
