are the rough 'n' ready glam rock 5 piece Death Valley Gypsies, delivering raunchy 1970s styled proto-punk dashed with hard rock. They write fresh, original tunes influenced by their musical heroes without overtly trying to sound vintage or retro.
Death Valley Gypsies musical touchstones range from 1960s British Invasion groups such as the Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds, to the glam-rock glitz of the New York Dolls and early Aerosmith, as well as Michigan proto-punk legends MC5 and the Stooges. They believe in, above all things, having a good time and entertaining their fans with their energetic, flashy live shows.

"The Death Valley Gypsies sound combines all the right elements of some of my favorite groups: from the rootsiness of the mid-late 60s British Invasion bands to the vital proto-punk/glam rock intensity of the early 70s, They present their influences in a close-knit, airplay ready manner fit for the present day..." - Josh Robertson, Music Writer
