The career of The Basily Gipsy Band has taken an enormous flight. For many years the gypsy family has been a hot item in the circuit and with their uplifting Gipsy sound they have appeared on many national and international stage. Musically inspired by Django Reinhardt and The Gipsy Kings, among others, they have developed their own identity from traditional and Spanish gypsy influences with warm sounds of violins, guitars and the cymbal.
Highlights were a joint performance with Stephanie Grapelli and the invitation to play at The Rolling Stones and Jeff Beck’s birthday party. In the Netherlands these musicians have been on almost all jazz stages and worldwide at major jazz festivals, including the North Sea Jazz Festival, the Jak Festival in Indonesia, the Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois-sur-Seine, the International Gipsy Festival in Oslo, the New York Birdland jazz club and the Copenhagen Jazz Festival.
