Sydney based, traditional French gypsy band Spyglass Gypsies will bring their swinging originals to the Queens Park Theatre next month for a one night only show as part of their Western Australian tour leg.

The band brings an energetic and playful flare to the stage with a set of songs that are reminiscent of the bygone days of a bohemian Paris.

Established in 2010, the group came together through a shared love of jazz music and have performed together in previous jazz projects.

“We love the history and traditions of Gypsy Jazz music” said guitarist and band leader Richard Ashby, “but we also love contributing to the genre with our own compositions, bringing a modern slant to the traditional style.”

Performing throughout Australia since 2010, the band have appeared in numerous noted venues such as the Sydney Opera House, Art Gallery of NSW and the Vanguard and appeared as several festivals such as Kiama Jazz & Blues Best, Newcastle Jazz Festival & the Gypsy Jazz Festival in Brisbane.

The Spyglass Gypsies will tour Geraldton with a full five piece band featuring guitars, clarinet, soprano saxophone, accordion and double bass guitar, and will be sure to have the audience on their feet dancing to their original tunes.

Spyglass Gypsies will be appearing at the Queens Park Theatre on Thursday 23rd April 2015, at 8.00pm, tickets are now on sale at or at the box office on 9956 6662.
