Artist Feature: Deep Sea Gypsies
“The Gypsy Boys” as their friends call them, are much older in heart than the years would have it seem. Born in a modern era with vintage dreams, The Deep Sea Gypsies offer a sound that is all their own. With major influences like; Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Rory Gallagher, Muddy Waters, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, some won’t believe that the 4 members are all in their 20′s.
Coming together in Victoria’s Westshore communities in 2010, DSG has firm roots on Vancouver Island. With 2 album releases, multiple festival appearances and more than 24 shows in 2012, including a western tour with Victoria’s Mindil Beach Markets, the Deep Sea Gypsies are coming to the surface.
Loke Webb, the band’s lead vocalist, and Johnny Regimbal, lead guitarist, bring their messages of life and love to the forefront; with hip-hop stylings and smooth, bluesy choruses over shredding riffs and incredible solos, they bring a unique combination to the stage. Greg Moore drives a solid back end on the drums flashing his cymbal collection while drummer-turned-bassist, Marty Boggs, fills in the groove with his fast paced licks.
Having made great local connections and a solid impact on their community, the Deep Sea Gypsies are taking steps to advance their dreams and turn their musical talents into a career. With songs for a third album already under way, and sights set on further touring, these Gypsy Boys show no signs of stopping.
