Full Biography

Gypsy Rogues was formed in the early part of 1997 when some of the Midland’s most versatile musicians joined together in what at the time was a modest project with ‘fun’ as its main purpose.

Described in one newspaper as ‘raw endlessly energetic Irish folk’ this 4-piece band produces a huge variety of tunes and songs both modern and traditional that satisfies the widest spectrum of audience. So whether you want them to play at a wedding an Irish function or at your local bar Gypsy Rogues' musical versatility enables them to suit any occasion and with over ten years of entertaining through music they can be relied upon for an event of the highest calibre.

In just three years Gypsy Rogues has gone from being four separate musicians to producing their own CD "A Fuller Picture" which sold out in advance sales before a note was even heard thanks to their ever-growing army of supporters. They have sold out theatres in self-produced Irish shows complete with dancers. They have headlined at the prestigious Bromsgrove Folk Festival and have appeared on the bill at a number of others. They performed for around 2000 people on Millennium night in London and they have appeared for an estimated audience of 5000 for a music festival in Birmingham’s Cannon Hill Park.

Here are some of Gypsy Rogues' numerous highlights of the last 3 years

Outstanding in every way

5 stars - Gypsy Rogues are Highly Recommended
booked Gypsy Rogues for their event in Oxfordshire May 2024

“Getting the extended family together every year has always been fun and a great way of keeping in touch beyond the normal births, deaths and marriages. The Gypsy Rogues helped make this year’s gathering especially good fun. The music was fabulous and they really got everyone into the party spirit… I think they might even have had a bit of fun themselves, despite my awful singing, about which they were wonderfully tolerant and generous!”

The icing on the cake !

booked Gypsy Rogues for their event in Buckinghamshire August 2023

“The Gypsy Rogues were a great choice and I would certainly recommend them for any party or wedding. Their music and singing was top-class and highly professional. The whole party loved them. If you are considering this group for your event, have no doubts … they were excellent!”

I can highly recommend the Gypsy Rogues! Perfect band!

booked Gypsy Rogues for their Wedding in Conwy June 2023

“The Gypsy Rogues were the perfect band for our wedding and we had a lot of fun. They were extremely helpful and very patient as well as providing great entertainment. I spoke to Dave a few days before the wedding and his advice was not to get stressed about timings etc. Just as well because the band were supposed to play their first set at 7:30 pm but eventually started at 10:00 pm after our speeches etc overran. The band had no issues with this and couldn't have been more relaxed and helpful. We had an issue with the microphones which they very kindly fixed. The music was just perfect and the dance floor was bouncing, they even let me join them for the last two songs of the night! Highly recommended.”

Great Band!
