Tomas and the Gypsy Violin

We are very pleased to support and promote an amazing new publication by Robert Eisenberg, titled Tomas and the Gypsy Violin, now available for sale through the below links. This book reaches your heart, tugs away at your emotions and registers as honest, true, and believable. "it is a simple but powerful tale about the transformative power of music. It concerns an orphaned Roma child, Tomas, who is adopted by a Toronto couple. A book about the love of music and the love of parent and child, it is also one of the very few books that deal with the Roma community in Toronto." Sales from the book are being donated to Sistema Toronto by the author, Mr. Eisenberg, who is also a founding member of this worthwhile organization dedicated to providing musical outlets to children. Sistema Toronto is a social development program that builds a sense of community, self-respect, and mutual support in children. Our free, intensive, ensemble-based music lessons inspire children at risk to realize their full potential as students and citizens through the pursuit of musical excellence.


Upcoming Gigs

Welcome one and all!

We're a Toronto-based Gypsy Band that features a repertoire of traditional Gypsy music mixed with elements of Reggae, Funk, R'n'B, and Soul. Acoustic guitar, upright bass, accordion, violin, and trumpet all support Micheal's vocals in a unique blend of music. We play both traditional Roma Gypsy songs and and original songs composed by Micheal T Butch.

Have a look around and listen to a few of our songs!

Between Worlds is out!

We are very proud to announce the release of our newest CD: Between Worlds

Micheal would like to thank everyone involved for their help in making his dream a reality. 

Between Worlds is a compilation of traditional Gypsy music and originals, with the unique Gypsy Rebels sound
that sets it apart from other recordings in the genre, adding a funk-inspired, urban Canadian Gypsy flavour. 

Check out some of the tracks in the player at the bottom of your screen or visit our music page for the rest of the tracks. 

Between Worlds is available for purchase on ITunes, at our live gigs, and right here on our website in MP3 format.
