Papermoon Gypsys, the Orange County-based blues/rock band, recently took home two L.A. Music Critics Awards, ‘Best Blues Artist’ and ‘Fan Favorite’. Several of the winners of this year’s awards will be featured at the L.A. Music Critics Awards Winners Showcase, which the Papermoon Gypsys will headline. The event, on Tuesday, June 20 at 10pm will be held at The Hotel Cafe, 1623 N. Cahuenga Blvd. in Hollywood.
“We’re honored and, of course, thrilled to win not just one, but two LA Music Critic Awards, in what was a very competitive field,” says Papermoon Gypsys’ guitarist and principal songwriter, Kenny “Big Daddy” Williams. “We personally know many of the bands that competed, and were up against some very talented musicians. Thanks to (LA Music Critic Founder) Robert Leggett for recognizing and involving Papermoon Gypsys in these awards.” He added, “We are very excited to be headlining The LA Music Critics Awards Showcase. It represents all the hard work we’ve been doing for our debut album. It also shows how many people love our music online being fan favorite. We have a great night planned this coming Tuesday night. The last time we played L.A. at The Mint, we got a great review from Music Connection Magazine”.
With the dynamic voice of singer Lexi G powering the vocal side, the band presents a musically diverse, high-energy show live that is hard to beat. Guitarist Kenny ‘Big Daddy’ Williams shows his mastery of his instrument well, going from subtle, tasty licks to flamboyant ‘playing behind the back’ fireworks faster then a Tesla in ‘Ludicrous’ mode. Kenny said about the band, “Having Lexi G back was the best decision, she is even better then ever. Along with Albert Margolis on keys (Meters) and Ray Weston on drums (Wishbone Ash, Iron Butterfly) and with local favorite Tony Robin on bass, the sound is better then ever!”.
