The Gypsies, of Port Huron are poised to embark on a grand new mission and adventure, as the reach and
popularity of the band's music is rapidly expanding to other regions of the US and Canada...and all roots
rock fans, of yesterday and today, are invited to join the revolution! Throughout this busy summer
festival tour season, the Gypsies have been tuning in to an amazing phenomenon, pretty much wherever
they travel...observing that music fans, and audiences everywhere, are totally embracing and grooving
along with a revival and rebirth of the true spirit of vintage roots rock music. To be clear, this revolution
isn't an attempt to emulate classic rock legends, or even to pay homage to the giants of rock that have
gone before, although that is certainly part of the magic...but rather to rekindle a flame, and a spirit of
shared community, that has been lying dormant in rock and roll for some time. It's a celebration of what
moves people, at a soul level.... what makes them leave all their worries and cares at the gate, and come
together, from all walks of life and belief systems, just to jam and dance and be free. It may be an
overstatement to say that this might eventually solve all the world's problems, but hey, it might just be
the start of something huge, who's to say? Look for more Roots Rock Revolution shows, coming soon!!
The Gasoline Gypsies serve up genre-transcending Blue Water Michigan Rock & Roll, delivered by four
guys who clearly love their craft. With three-part vocal harmonies, driving guitar and bass riffs, the songs
are powerful and intense, yet simple and pure. In the last couple of years, the Gypsies have racked up five
Detroit Music Awards, been deemed one of the "Three Best Unsigned Bands in the USA" by JBL, were
Grand Prize Winners of the 2017 Michigan State Fair Superstar contest and voted Best Original Rock
Band in the 2018 WDIV Local 4 Detroit Viewers Poll.
"Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils sound like they made a serendipitous wrong turn on their
way to the juke joint and wound up in a countrypolitan cathedral instead. It's beautiful and ever so
haunting. Westwood's voice is sexy and strong as it applies the seduction over the band's groove and
thoughtful reserve...and the Handsome Devils lay it down as pretty as their golden haired captain. It's
honky-tonk with a little less honky. It's atmospheric yet immediate and approachable. It packs a wallop"

Late Nite Catechism is an uproariously funny play that takes the audience back to their youth. The irrepressible Sister teaches class to a roomful of "students."Throughout the course of the class the benevolent instructor rewards the "students" for correct answers with glow-in-the-dark rosaries and other nifty prizes. Naughty students may well find themselves on stage sitting in a corner reflecting their actions. However, even the most reluctant "students" will be clamoring to get into this Sister's class. The New York Times calls Late Nite Catechism "interactive theater at its best and full of laughs!"
