    Well done OMP. The link might need a little help. Is that Oakland, CA? If so, maybe I can come to a gig sometime. Keep us informed.

    wow, thanks for sharing this Anthony... you've got a fun group there and everybody in it is a capable player who is obviously committed to the authentic GJ style; no annoying overtones of bluegrass or rock!

    I hope you guys will stay together and keep at it; having a solid nucleus of players at this level could really get a good GJ scene happening in your area.

    Now all you guys have to do is keep playing together for the proverbial 10,000 hours...

    Will

    PS Look forward to hearing the Oakland Manouche Project at DiJ 2014...?

    Sorry folks, I tried to use the youtube link button but it didn't work like I'd hoped. You will just have to copy and paste if you care to listen.

    Will, thanks a lot buddy ! I hope it doesn't burst your bubble, but we may start doing some pop tunes, or at least some Tom Waits tunes.

    Fact is, my goal is to combine folk/rock with gypsy jazz in an original music sense. I'm still working out the details though.
