Based out of Pittsburgh, rooted in blues music and delivering rock n' roll, Big Gypsy brings heady sounds to the local music scene. Playing together for only three years we have watched each other grow tremendously. Starting out as strictly a cover band, we are already working towards our first EP release. With Dave Byer bringing eleven years of playing experience and a strong handle on slide guitar, his unique style guides your ears and minds to their happy place. Pete Peredes on drums, takes hold of time, rhythm and space and keeps the band rockin in an orderly fashion. Without him, we could not count. :) With the blues running through his veins, Nick Bianco is on bass guitar. He is our backbone and keeps us all full and happy. And fronting the oporation is Jess Winghart. Jessica has been belting out rock music since the single digits. Growing up with idols such as Michael Jackson and Axle Rose, to finding her voice through the music of Janis Joplin and Joan Jett, this chick is a force to be reckoned with on and off stage.
Above all else, we are a family. We love what we do and we love sharing our passion with others. There really is nothing that compares to the power of music. So listen to us, love us and share the love, but most importantly take a stand and support your local musicians. For "Wthout music, life would be a mistake." - Nietzsche
