TOMORROW: New Single by The Gasoline Gypsies drops Saturday, May 23, 5:00 pm EST with streaming virtual release party! Press release…

DETROIT: We’ve all been catapulted into this strangely surreal moment, where we are collectively dreaming of a new Tomorrow and also wistfully recalling the carefree times of yesterday…in the last cold winter days leading up to the country-wide shutdown to contain the Coronavirus in the USA, while knowing that the band members must soon separate for some time, to protect at-risk loved ones, the Gasoline Gypsies were hustling up ‘til the last moment, along with their dedicated producer whiz Lee Hoffman, to complete the studio tracks for their new song, entitled “Tomorrow” …not having any real understanding at the time of how prescient and meaningful the idea of Tomorrow would soon become, just a few months on…

Fast forward to today…on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, traditionally the kickoff of summer fun and the outdoor live music festival season, the Gypsies are scheming a special Happy Hour launch bash to celebrate Tomorrow, right now, in this moment, while dreaming of future days when we are all able to gather en masse once again…
“Tired of talking ‘bout tomorrow, ‘cause it may never come…”

In the weeks just prior to the pandemic, the Gypsies had gleefully road tripped south to Raleigh and Wilmington, N.C., for two packed sold-out shows, and were already conspiring with local supporting radio stations 95.7 FM That Station and Modern Rock 98.7 to return to play larger venues in the coming months, those plans are, of necessity, in limbo for the time being…but both outlets continue to play multiple GGs tracks and have been enthusiastic early adopters on new releases from the band. “The Gasoline Gypsies were immediately embraced by our listeners, because the music is as genuine and authentic as it gets,” remarks Brian Maloney, V.P., Radio Division, Capitol Broadcasting, which owns both properties. “Six months ago, North Carolina hadn’t heard of the Gasoline Gypsies, and then a rock and roll combustion took place, with wide airplay and two sold out shows, a worldwide stream along with a multi-media blitz that catapulted them to becoming a new musical brand in our state.”

Also in the midst of the madness the 2020 Detroit Music Awards went virtual, streaming the show online Sunday April 20, and for the second year running, the Gasoline Gypsies were named Outstanding Rock Group by members of the Michigan Music Community!

Large traditional Summer Festivals may be scarce this year, but the Gasoline Gypsies are looking very forward to headlining the ambitious Redneck Raft Out 2020 floating stage boaters festival on NE Oklahoma’s Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees, Saturday September 5, Labor Day Weekend…as watercraft offer the perfect social distancing devices and there’s no shoreline access for RRO, it looks to be the perfect 2020 end of summer bash! Local radio station 94.5 FM the Wolf is also spinning multiple Gasoline Gypsies tracks in anticipation of their Oklahoma late summer appearance!

We hope you will join us in looking forward to “Tomorrow”…by Michigan indie rock phenoms the Gasoline Gypsies…available everywhere Saturday May 23! Please like, share, stream, dance along with us, or whatever moves you! Streaming from the Gasoline Gypsies Facebook Page at 5:00 PM EST! www.Facebook.com/thegasolinegypsies

“Because, you know, Tomorrow will soon be Yesterday!!”

Gasoline-Gypsies-Playing-With-Fire-Cover-Art

Detroit, MI: Named one of the three “Best Unsigned Bands in America” in 2017, the Gasoline Gypsies, of Michigan’s Blue Water Thumb region are continuing to blaze an independent, roots rock revolution path, all across the USA. Their latest single, the hypnotic Playing with Fire, follows two tracks released last fall, Walking Trouble and Freaks and Non-Believers, which both made it to “Power A” rotation at Americana/Rock stations in the Carolinas. Playing with Fire debuted on That Station 95.7 FM Raleigh (2019 NC Broadcasters Station of the Year) and Modern Rock 98.7 Wilmington, in advance of being widely available via digital platforms. Fire was also instantly added by the Hills 92.7 FM, their hometown AAA station in Port Huron, MI.

The North Carolina adds come in advance of highly anticipated upcoming tour stops for the Gypsies, Friday Feb 7, at Jesse’s Yacht Club, Wilmington, a Birthday Bash for their Morning Alternative am show, and Saturday Feb 8, at the Imurj performance space in downtown Raleigh. Since the Gypsies tracks were first added to rotation in these markets plus 94.9 FM the Palm, Columbia, S.C. last fall, Southeast U.S. fan enthusiasm for the band has been growing steadily, and advance ticket sales for their shows have been brisk.

“…I’ve got so much respect for a band like the Gasoline Gypsies, doing things their own way, indie and currently unsigned…great things are ahead for them in 2020! I am looking very forward to seeing this band live, I think that will be one amazing show…it’s gonna Rock, for sure!”

Sean McHugh, That Station 95.7, Raleigh-Durham, NC , Chief Music Operator, Morning Music Curator

“…the Gasoline Gypsies delivered two sets of rousing, inspiring, harmony-filled music that not only showed off the band’s audience-pleasing stage demeanor but its impressive roots-rock songcraft.

Fans who drove from the east side of the state to experience this inaugural (all-acoustic) musical adventure joined West Michiganders for what certainly ranks as one of Listening Room’s most memorable concerts since the 200-capacity venue opened at Studio Park in late October …”

– John Sinkevics, Local Spins, Grand Rapids 

“These Guys are so awesome to work with, they totally GET it…” 

– Brian Maloney, V.P. Of Programming, Capitol Broadcasting, Raleigh, NC

“Walking Trouble” is such an amazing track! It really has a great groove, and it’ll sound awesome on the radio!! You guys are totally on point with what is happening in Rock Music right now…” 

– Doug Podell, Program Director, WLLZ-FM, IHeart Radio, Detroit 

“When I’m asked questions like who’s the next big thing – my answer is usually influenced by how driven I see a certain artist – artists who are constantly working on whatever it is – touring, writing, recording, and performing locally, but then, of course, they’ve also gotta bring it – and both the  Native Howl and Gasoline Gypsies bring it …they’ve got styles that have major cross-generational appeal….” (Regarding dual CD Release Show for Gypsies and Howl, June 2018) 

– Jeff Milo, WDET-FM, Detroit Free Press 

As fresh sounding as they are retro, the Gasoline Gypsies evoke the spirit of rock and roll as it was originally intended…it’s music that helps us all forget our cares, free our souls, and jam together.

Their original songs feature unifying, foot-stomping anthems of life, that inspire their broad, multi-generational audience to sing along…the music of the Gasoline Gypsies sounds like fine vintage southern rock, rolled around in the grand ol’ grit of the Motor City…it’s music that moves people, and connects them, all at the same time…

In the past couple of years, the Gypsies have racked up five Detroit Music Awards in Rock and Americana, been deemed one of the “Three Best Unsigned Bands in the USA” by JBL, were Grand Prize Winners of the 2017 Michigan State Fair Superstar contest and voted Best Original Rock Band in the 2018 WDIV Local 4 Detroit Viewers Poll. They also are  attracting regular radio airplay outside the Midwest, most notably in the Triangle markets of North and South Carolina, and now expanding west. The Vagabundos, the Gypsies multi-generational, highly active and loyal fan tribe, (named for their most recent EP release,) are a main driving force behind the band, following them to destination gigs and festivals all over the country.
