Gypsies spotted in the Valley

Deep Sea Gypsies coming to the Waverley this Saturday

The Deep Sea Gypsies are coming to Cumberland

Vancouver Island original blues-rockers, The Deep Sea Gypsies, bring their driving, psych-blues show to the Waverley, Saturday Feb. 28.

Born in a modern era with vintage dreams, The Deep Sea Gypsies offer a sound that is all their own, playing an original innovative combination of ’60s psych blues rock, ’70s southern rock and hip hop.

Strongly influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin (watch for the tattoos), Rory Gallagher, Muddy Waters, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, the homage is fierce and true.

Hailing from the south end of the Island, the Gypsies have previously visited the Comox Valley as featured acts at Rock The Block, Rhythm on the Rock and Elevate Arts Festivals – rocking out the latter on the riverside at Cona Hostel was a particular highlight.

Tickets for Saturday’s show are $12 in advance, $15 at the door and are available at Bop City Records, The Waverley Hotel and online at gigtix.ca (some fees apply). Presented by Tinshack Creative and Cumberland Village Works.

The Rascals will open the evening, hitting the stage around 10 p.m.

Regimbal at the White Whale

DSG’s lead guitar and vocalist, Johnny Regimbal, will also be performing a solo acoustic show at the White Whale on Friday Feb. 27 – if old school blues and slide guitar are your thing, you’ll want to check that out.
