The Swinging Gypsies at Ogden After Hours
/// February 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
There is no doubt, this fiery bunch has a strong voice in New Orleans. NOCCA graduate and New Orleans native, John Saavedra founded this band in 2014. They play at several venues around the city, estimating about 35 gigs a month; the Swinging Gypsies have been featured on ESPN Monday night football, NCIS, WWOZ, Offbeat Magazine, WWLTv channel 4 news, French Quarter Festival, Gretna Festival, Hey Mister Jesse! podcast based in San Francisco and Rochester NY WGMC Jazz. Their latest album “Hot Boudin,” was produced by Randy Crafton, a prominent engineer based in New York City, who’s worked with legends Aretha Franklin and the Mingus Big Band. The Swinging Gypsies also have a following in San Diego, touring twice a year and now expanding their travels to the east coast and abroad.
