Texas Artist Series: Texas Gypsies
October 25, 2017 6:00pm - 8:30pm
Experience the rich diversity of Texas's cultural heritage. From world-renowned concert pianists to award-winning authors, cutting-edge filmmakers to dance troupes, this series explores the arts.
Join the Texas Gypsies for a unforgettable night at the Bullock Museum. The Texas Gypsies describe their music as "vintage jazzy swingin' cool hep cat sounds of the 20's-30's along with a taste of western swing, with a mix of gypsy jazz magic sprinkled over the top and a pinch of retro deco rockabilly!" This award-winning band mixes passionate violin, rocking swinging guitars, slapping upright bass, and retro style drumming to harmoniously create their own unique, fun and artistic sound! Offered in conjunction with the American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition exhibition, join the band for a performance and talk on early American jazz and swing music in Texas.
Arrive at 6 pm for exclusive after-hours exploration of the exhibit, then make your way upstairs to the second floor to enjoy a cocktail from the cash bar at a welcome reception. The performance will begin at 7 pm in the Texas Spirit Theater. Seats for this intimate performance are limited.
American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition presented by Anheuser-Busch, Ben E. Keith Company and Bud Light/Silver Eagle Distributors.
