You have just come across the music that belongs to the best dirty gypsy blues band (perhaps the only dirty gypsy blues band) on our side of the Mississippi, that you might not have heard of, until now... We sincerely hope you enjoy.
They are called D.on Darox & The Melody Joy Bakers. ...See Full Bio
"It's from this Tom Waits mode that D.on Darox and the Melody Joy Bakers take some of their inspiration. Based in Ventura, not far from Waits' native Los Angeles, the Melody Joy Bakers embody a sound popularized by many gypsy punk bands that emerged in the wake of Tom Waits: rave-ups in waltz time, New Orleans mojo, squealing trumpets, woozy accordions, a preoccupation with baptism and death, and a growling frontman make up the DNA of this outfit."
