Check out JYPSI tonight at the Southwest Porch at Bryant Park. I saw these guys at the Hard Rock in NYC when the opened for Seal at a Chartiy event a couple of years ago and they were great. Young, hip, brother/sister band.

Their label gave me a good blurb about them (see below), which will be better than my description above and an additional "They like rock". Hope to see you tonight!

Young Sibling Band, Jypsi, Announces Not-to-Be-Missed New York Engagements

Arista Nashville’s vibrant sibling group Jypsi will be spending a rare ten days in New York this month with eight engagements scheduled during the jaunt. The general public will have an opportunity to catch what the Los Angeles Times calls the “most jaw-dropping country show of the year” for free August 21st, 24th and 25th from 6:00-6:45pm and August 26 from 7:00pm-7:45pm at the Living Room, located at 154 Ludlow Street, in Manhattan. In addition, Jypsi is also slated to perform at the new Southwest Porch at Bryant Park on August 20th at 7:30pm.

Brought to Nashville by the legendary Cowboy Jack Clement – who produced such luminaries as Johnny Cash, Charley Pride, and many more – the band has honed their sound, style, and stamina by regularly playing six nights a week at Layla’s Bluegrass Inn on Nashville’s famed Lower Broadway. It was here that the band’s captivating sound and style won over patrons as well as record execs, setting the stage for their eagerly-awaited current single, “Mister Officer.”

At the helm of country music stardom, these siblings—ranging in age from 18-28—are no strangers to the stage. Having grown-up on the road singing, playing, and writing since youngest, Lillie Mae (lead vocals / fiddle) was just three years old, now seasoned performers with youthful energy, older siblings Amber-Dawn (vocals / fiddle), Scarlett (mandolin) and Frank (vocals / guitar) live-up to what Entertainment Weekly called “bluegrass-informed country with rock & roll spirit.”

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch one show, or all eight, when these talented performers take over Manhattan. For additional details on how you can be witness to a country group with a striking sense of fashion and self-expression like none other, please visit
