In early 2009 Gypsy Revival rose from the ashes of a popular Indianapolis band called Davey and the Chorus with a firm idea of creating a new original sound within the rock Americana genre. Davey Allen (guitar, bass, keys, vocals), Jesse Langebartels (guitar, bass, vocals), Andy Nathan (bass) and Mike Sanson (drums, vocals) spent time last summer in Nashville with producer Phil Harris recording songs for a CD EP scheduled for release on April 24. Listing influences from classics such as the Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, and The Band along with more modern iconic figures like Weezer, Coldplay and the Black Crowes, the young and dashing quartet lands squarely in the area of standard blues-country-rock-pop and proud of it. They consistently walk the line on stage throughout Indiana, with recent jaunts to Chicago, Cincinnati and now, for the first time, Springfield, garnering praise from fans and critics alike, for “one of the most energetic shows around,” based on good music done well.
