Melbourne funk machine, Gypsy Brown, is the brain child of drummer/percussionist/producer Elvis Aljus. Rallying together with some of Melbourne’s finest musicians in 2008 the whole concept of Gypsy Brown became about creating an energetic funk style of music that incorporates classic funk/Latin grooves and sounds with driving percussion.
After spending the early part of 2009 playing to enthusiastic audiences as part of the Big Day Out Festival, Gypsy Brown continued to wow audiences, playing all over Melbourne. Collectively the band members have performed with artists such as; The Bamboos, Breakestra, Joe Bataan, Cookin’ on 3 Burners, Mo Horizons, Dj Spinner, Mark De Clive Lowe, John Butler, Doc Neeson, Ozomatli, Art and Cyril Neville of The Meters and The Neville Brothers, U2, BB King, Mother Earth, Renee Geyer…the list is endless.
