Packed House Opens WMS; So. Gypsi Up Next
By MARK EVANS
The historic Orris Theatre was packed to the gills Friday night for the opening week of the 2023
Ste. Genevieve Chamber of Commerce Winter Music Series.
Saints Til Friday kicked off the winter series for the second straight year.
The eclectic and versatile Southern Gypsi is up next.
The group, which includes local members, as well as St. Louis and Illinois residents, prides itself both in outstanding harmony and in a wide variety of music.
They play classic and contemporary rock and also older country up to today’s country hits.
Group founder Brian Boyer, who does vocals, one of the Ste. Genevieve natives, called the group “really diverse.”
“We’ll play everything from the older country to new country to classic rock to newer rock,” he told the Herald in 2022. “A little bit for everybody.”
The original version of Southern Gypsi was formed in 2012.
Boyer said this is the third version of the band and “definitely the most successful version.” He said the group is building a fan base.
“We do have a good following,” Boyer said, “a very loyal following.”
