For as many big stages and cool clubs as Cody and I have performed on or in over the years, with separate bands. we have likely played in at least as many different restaurants. Trust me, they are not all the same. Most of the time the music is just a backdrop and people don’t seem to listen much. The Gypsy Cafe in Sebastopol is different. It makes sense that the folks drawn to the Gypsy’s great food and West Sonoma Co. location would also be wonderful music lovers. However, Cody and I are continually impressed by how much the patrons seem to engage with the music. It’s doesn’t hurt that they are great tippers too. That itself would be rewarding enough, but then top it all off with a delicious meal and the warm spirit of the owner (Shawn) and you might have the perfect restaurant gig. I think that I have to pinch myself. If you come by the Gypsy Cafe when we are playing and you feel like you want to pinch one of us, Cody needs a good pinching.
