Registration

According to David Bromberg, this New England quintet delivers “great singing, fantastic guitar and violin work, with high-energy originals that leave the crowd crazy.” Occidental Gypsy in its own words promises “an exhilirating blend of gypsy swing, jazz and world music that enraptures the listener with a complex acoustic sound, burnished by smooth vocals reminiscent of the first era of swing.” Lead guitarist Brett Feldman is the combo’s composer and arranger, joined by lead singer Jeremy Frantz on rhytm guitar, Eli Bishop on fiddle, Jeff Feldman on bass, and Jon Chapman on percussion.

In addition to Bromberg, “OG” has performed with Ricki Lee Jones, Jorma Kaukenen, Stanley Jordan, and Joe Sample, and the band was named a “Best Bet for Weekend Entertainment” by the Boston Globe. At Seekers Church, 276 Carroll Street NW (one block from Takoma Metro station). $20/$10 members.
