The Rocket 88s have been a solid fixture in the Arizona music scene since the mid 1970s and in the national blues scene...

The Rocket 88s cd "AZ Bootin" with legendary sax player Big Jay McNeely was a 1988 Grammy Award Nominee for best traditional blues recording.

The Rocket 88s are well seasons professional blues musicians touring most of the USA through the years and exciting European audiences. Bill Tarsha, playing harmonica since the mid 60s, is a nationally known world class player winning top harmonica acclaim since the early 1970s.

Music has always been an influence in Gypsy's life. As a child she would attend at least three or more church services, just to hear them sing. She also loves to dance, once given a harmonica as a birthday gift, it all seem to fit.

She has had the opportunity to listen to some of the world’s greatest blues harmonica players. Many of them have been her mentors. Feature artist include, Bullet Bill Tarsha, Bob Corritore, Charlie Musselwhite, Rick Estrin, Lazy Lester, Mark Harman, Billy Boy Arnold, Johnny Dyer, Rob Piazza, Jr Wells, and many others.

She has been playing for about twenty five years, and been in several blues bands, from LA, Las Vegas, to Phoenix. Wild hair and high energy have become her trade mark.

Along with the cosmic talents of Mr. TJ (Tom Jennings) on guitar, New Orleans, Louisiana born Col.Dave DuPont on keys, Don Kolb from Albany, NY on bass, Anthony from Chicago on drums, it all makes for a fine mix.
