OCCIDENTAL GYPSY

Part of the Strand's Outdoor Summer Concert Series! FREE!

This summer, the Strand Theatre offers a series of FREE outdoor music concert events in conjunction with Rockland’s First Friday Art Walks.  The concerts take place on Friday on Winter Street, and feature live music, food vendors, a beer and wine garden, and more!  The music will start at 7:30 after the gallery walk winds down, with vendors offering food & drink starting at 5:30 pm for those wanting to come downtown and make an evening of it.  Food will be offered by: Uproot Wood Fired Pizza, Taco Libre food truck, Taproot Italian Street Food cart, and Stone Fox Farm Creamery.

On the bill for August 3rd is the quintet Occidental Gypsy, who are pioneering the sound of Gypsy-Pop. Their mélange of up-tempo, high-energy rhythms of Gypsy, melded with the catchy melodic hooks of Pop delivers a thrilling, diverse, sophisticated, and eclectic sound.  The group’s unique approach to pop, jazz, and dance music stems from the influence of Gypsy Swing founders Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. The quintet is fronted by Berklee trained singer and rhythm guitarist Scott (“Scottie”) Kulman, and supported by two Berklee students: violinist Jakub Trasak from the Czech Republic, percussionist Francisco Vielma from Venezuela, as well as brothers Brett (lead guitar) and Jeff Feldman (bassist). The players are incredibly energetic and charming entertainers who interact with fans on a personal level, and incorporate audience participation into every show.
