Urban Gypsies Band - Perth Entertainment | Band | Artist Profile


Urban Gypsies began in Perth, Western Australia in about 1998 with a view of playing a mix of original, cross cultural acoustic guitar music including a mix of styles such as bossa nova, blues, funk, rumba, gypsy swing and other world music influences.

The original members of the Urban Gypsies were noted Australian guitarists Gavin Libotte and Glenn Rogers. From this fiery duo came the album Gypsy Fever and a series of concerts at the Fremantle Arts Centre, Perth Jazz Society, Kulcha, Fairbridge Festival, Joondalup Festival, support to international artists such as Cassandra Wilson and at the Perth Concert Hall and for the “Buena Vista Social Club’s Australian tour.

Following this period Gavin Libotte’s move to Sydney had prompted guitarist Gordon Tan to join him in creating a more progressive version of the group in New South Wales. These two amazing guitarists capitalised on their energetic musical prowess. The production of the second album Sauvage (which was released April 2003) reflects such qualities.

They have since had huge success playing at the Barossa Valley Wine Festival, Braidwood Festival, Sydney Acoustic Guitar Festival, Cobargo Folk Festival and many more. Urban Gypsies have held residencies and concerts in exclusive Sydney venues including Cargo Bar, The Basement, Watershed Hotel in Darling Harbour, Side on Cafe, and Hemmesphere. They recently impressed large audiences at the Bellingen Global Carnival.

Trilogy are the perfect choice for all wedding entertainment and corporate functions.
