An evening with The Gibson Brothers at Roy’s Hall

Gibson BrothersFriday June 24, 2016 – 08:00 PM

ROY’s HALL is proud to present IBMA 2012 and 2013 Entertainer of the Year, The Gibson Brothers. The reigning IBMA Entertainers of the Year will take the audience on a journey through some of the greatest brother harmony songs from the 20th century. The Gibson Brothers combine their wide­-ranging influences into a unique style that honors tradition while still sounding refreshingly new.

Leigh and Eric Gibson are joined by Mike Barber on bass, Jesse Brock on mandolin and Clayton Campbell on fiddle. A No Depression blogger recently referred to the other three members of the band as “..the Gibson Brothers who don’t share the Gibson name.” But there’s no doubt they’re a band of musical brothers.  Steve Leftridge of PopMatters described them this way: “Eric and Leigh Gibson might have, pound-for-pound, the most impeccably fine-sounding traditional bluegrass band on the contemporary scene. …the reason these guys can’t lose is that, quite simply, they sound so great. Eric and Leigh sing bluegrass’ tightest harmony blend, and, instrumentally the group plays with unmatched alacrity and taste. ”

Hailing from the beautiful Mountain State of West Virginia, The Hillbilly Gypsies have been making and performing their own brand of old time bluegrass and original mountain music for over a decade! Formed in 2001 from a chance meeting at the now infamous Wednesday night old time jam in Morgantown, WV; The Hillbilly Gypsies have been pickin’ n’ grinnin’ and entertaining their loyal fans ever since.

The band is best known for their high-energy live performances and have become a crowd favorite at major festivals, fairs and concert venues all across the mid-Atlantic region and abroad. They perform in the old fashioned style, playing around a single vintage ribbon microphone. This “Old Timey” approach adds an authentic high-energy barn party atmosphere to their show. Watching the whole band work around the mic is like taking a trip back in time. It’ll sure make you want to get up and dance!

..and don’t let the flash of their lively stage performance and choreography fool ya, these folks are all highly skilled musicians and seasoned entertainers! Their lightning fast award-winning picking skills and musical arrangements mixed with natural comedic wit and high lonesome mountain vocal harmonies are sure to catch your ear right away. Combine that with a knack for original songwriting and a strong passion for old time and traditional music and this makes for an all-around authentic and exciting musical experience that you won’t soon forget. One listen and you’ll know that you are getting the real deal! The Gypsies are more than a band; they are a tight knit family, mindful of tradition but bold explorers of new and authentic styles of acoustic music and entertainment!

Hillbilly Water have been performing together since 2003. The band an acoustic trio features mandolin, guitar & bass fiddle. Louie Demayo is the lead singer and mandolin player. Lou is a huge fan of Bill Monroe and bluegrass music in general. Louie D. as he’s called by friends and fans alike has been playing mandolin for almost 20 years, previously playing with Grovers Mill with Carol Bogart & Gene Lowinger & Risky Busness . He’s also had the pleasure of hanging out and playing with Del McCoury, Adam Stefi, and Allison Krauss to name a few. On guitar we have “Fast,” Eddie Rainey. Ed’s been playing for as long as he can remember and was brought up listening and playing old time country and bluegrass songs, by his father Rich, himself a very talented banjo player and band leader (Riskey Business). Encouraged by his dad, Eddie learned to play all the bluegrass instruments; dobro, guitar, mandolin and banjo. He is quite a talent and must be seen to be believed. Not only does he play real good but he sings great too. Helping Lou D. with the high harmony. Ed’s played with many greats including Peter Rowan, Mick Taylor, Terry Reid and Vaser Clements. Songwriter & Bassist George Kapitanellis has been playing for over 25 years and his musical friendship with Eddie goes back just as far. They have been playing in bands since high school and have created a dynamic groove and feel that powers the band like a steam locomotive. Their familiarity lets them ease in and out of different grooves and phrasings effortlessly. These two guys live to play music. George has also played with some great talents, Terry Reid, Buddy Miles, Vaser Clements, King Wilke and Buddy Cage and has recorded extensively with his and Eddie’s electric band Cosmic American Derelicts. Hillbilly Water have recorded one album “Have A Drink” (released 2007), and just released their second album, Forever Blue, (May 20130). Hillbilly Water will be heading over to England to open for Terry Reid on a few shows as well as doing some showcase gigs of their own.
