“Sounds just like an old tobacco barn smells.”
That quote got my attention. I couldn’t help but wonder what it meant and who the band behind it was. My first thought was it meant they were comforting music, something you could listen to and just feel good. I decided to be sure, I’d read the rest of The Blue Soul Gypsys ‘about’ page. I found these lines followed the quote,
“To call The Blue Soul Gypsys simply a band is like calling Shakespeare a ‘writer,’ Jimi Hendrix a ‘guitar player,’ or Chuck Norris a ‘bad ass,’ it just doesn’t do them justice. The Blue Soul Gypsys are a band of brothers with one common goal: To change the world through the musical gifts god has given them.”
After reading that, I was even more intrigued so I listened to their music. I was not disappointed. I loved it. They have some great songs on their Facebook page. My favorites were Let Me Know and Bring Me Down. Watching their videos on youtube, I couldn’t help but notice the crowd response. The people loved them as you can hear in the video above of Saw You Today. So clearly, the quotes were right, this is not simply ‘a band.’
Read and learn more about these guys so you know who it is you are listening to:
- How did the band get together?
We are out of Elizabethtown Ky. We have been playing our instruments individually for years but we have been together as a band for 8 months. We originated out of a place called Pandaruella. It’s a production company and a brand.
Jeffery was out at Pandaruella
doing session work and working on his drum career,
Aaron had a band that was recording at Pandaruella,
Mike was a good friend who hung out at Pandaruella and played guitar and just was a part of the family
and Justin was in a band around Elizabethtown that we met playing shows with him.
We all came together and fit like a glove, it was an instant thing. We all just meshed well together from day one.
- How did the name Blue Soul Gypsys Originate?
The name came about in a funny way. We had no idea what we wanted to call ourselves at first. Aaron knew he wanted to have gypsy somewhere in the name. It was one of those things where we were all just throwing words out and writing them on a piece of paper and The Blue Soul Gypsys is what we came up with. We feel that Blue is a heavenly color and it’s a feel good color. You must have Soul when you play music, music is much more than just hearing it, it’s something you must feel. Then Gypsys because we all live an unconventional lifestyle, we take the path less traveled and we like it that way, life is special and we want to make sure we don’t take advantage of any aspect of life so we cherish everything that comes our way. Also we do spell gypsys wrong on purpose.
