Band of Gypsies is Costa Teguise’s only all-live rock, blues and soul band.
Formed in the classic “power trio” mould, the group performs a high-energy set with classic songs from bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cream, The Clash, ZZ Top, Gary Moore, Green Day, Blink-182 and more.
The group has been through a number of changes over the last few years, with the current line-up taking shape in early 2019. Martin Schofield is the only original member of the band, with Pete Tilbury-Fowler and Fran Ojeda joining more recently on guitar/vocals and bass respectively.
Having occupied most of the major Lanzarote venues at various times, Band of Gypsies now have a permanent home at Decades Showbar in Costa Teguise, where they perform 4 nights a week, including Saturdays when the band set up an extra microphone and present and evening of “Rockaoke”, where members of the audience can get up and sing live on stage with the band.
Drummer Martin Schofield sums things up: “It’s been a bit of a rocky road getting to where we are, but now we’ve got a really strong line-up. Each of us brings something different to the band in terms of styles and influences, which allows us to play a really broad range of material with real passion. Talking to our audiences we know that they absolutely love the fact that we don’t use backing tracks or other gimmicks … what you see is what you get with Band of Gypsies, and we’re really proud to deliver.”
