From Leonard Cohen to Alison Krauss with a hint of Chick Corea, you'll be enthralled by this swinging quartet!
"What can I say about these guys other than mind blowingly good. Marcus Holden , Darryl Neve and Garry Steel are a bunch of supremely talented musicians fronted by Sancha Prowse whose superb vocals (her timing and phrasing is absolutely spot on in extremely difficult pieces) sit very well on these old ears." - Tim Fleming: Gasoline Pony Gig
"Sancha and the Blue Gypsies bring the best of the gypsy music world, unforgettable toe-tapping tunes, with the best of the folk world, sing-a-long, heart-felt classics, together in one incredible show. The quality of their musician-ship and their intimate relationship with the audience makes this show something you won't forget. I will be booking this act again!!!" - Chris Cannell (Lounge Sessions Katoomba, Blue Mountains)
"The Blue Gypsies are a class act. Marcus, Garry & Stan had already played at our venue so we knew they would be outstanding. Sancha was unknown to us but she not only sang brilliantly but also helped make even the song transitions entertaining." - Steve (The Manly Fig)
