“Why didn't you tell me you were one of the best bands in Texas! I give the show an A+!!”
-Tom Keener Allen Civic Auditorium
"Many of our patrons said this was the best concert of the season! Thanks for the sold out performance! You were fantastic!”
-Janey Richardson Spicewood Arts Society
"With the release of Café Du Swing, the Texas Gypsies have accomplished what few bands have even tried, let alone succeeded in doing in the past. The group blends elements of traditional small group Swing, Gypsy Jazz and Western Swing into a tightly woven fabric of 21st Century sophistication and jumpin, thumpin entertainment".
"A buzz is building for the Swinging Texas Gypsies. Their CD comes loaded with Charm and Chops!"
- Mario Tarradell (Staff Critic) The Dallas Morning News
