"I had only seen them once before, at least recently, and while they were good then, you could tell they brought their A-game here at the House of Blues. They were on fire, bolting right out of the gate, and with each song they just became more of an unstoppable force and I don’t see how anyone in attendance could not have had their eyes glued to the stage, soaking in the pure rock sounds they were churning out and enjoying the lively show that accompanied it. Honestly, when they were done I found myself wondering, “If they’re like this all the time, why don’t I see them more often???” I’m gonna have to try to fix that, I guess. They’ll be back here at the House of Blues on July 6th for a battle of the bands style show, where the winner will perform at this years BFD, opening for acts like Megadeth, Slash and many more, so go support them. Also, while you’re waiting for their new record to come out, go into iTUNES and check out their old one, it’s well worth pickin
“The Gypsy Bravado – According to the bio of this quartet based in Denton, TX the band wanted to “take the influence of early rock'n'roll greats and add a progressive psychedelic edge”. Well waveriders, mission accomplished! This band sounds fantastic! Strong vocals, killer guitar work, and downright pounding rhythm section. Follow the link waveriders only if you want to rock out.”

“[...]you could tell the audience was feeling the groove the band was putting out. The synth work was tasteful, the guitar work was spot-on, and the vocals had a strong edge (even if they were, occasionally, a little strained). The music ranged from harder tunes to more spacey offerings, with a healthy dose of feedback when needed. The Gypsy Bravado definitely held its own against the more well-known acts that followed -- and made me grateful that I had taken a chance on a new act.”
“If you were to map out a phylogenetic tree of hippie music, you'd go from Pete Seeger to Bob Dylan the acoustic artist, to Dylan the electric artist, to the 13th Floor Elevators, the Grateful Dead and so on. The Gypsy Bravado fit right into that tradition.”
"All five songs [on their Through the Rabbit Hole EP] ooze with the authenticity of a live performance, which isn't surprising given the group's propensity towards delivering electrifying live shows."
