Live @ the MACC to Stream Free Gypsy Pacific Concert, Jan. 9
Live @ the MACC is presenting a free streaming concert on Saturday, Jan. 9 at 7:30 p.m. featuring Gypsy Pacific. The concert will stream on MauiArts.org, the MACC’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
Gypsy Pacific is a vibrant gypsy-jazz band based on the island of Maui with guitarists Tom Conway, Phil Benoit, violinist Willy Wainwright and bassist Marcus Johnson. They have been performing and recording in Hawai‘i for nearly 20 years.
The band was formed when Tom Conway and Willy Wainwright, with their love for gypsy-jazz music, started sharing ideas and brought in bassist Marcus Johnson, then later Phil Benoit on rhythm guitar to form a powerhouse of a band. The idea has been, and continues to be, to bring their own approach to gypsy-jazz with traditional and original music and an island flair. Notable performances have been with Willie Nelson, David Benoit, Larry Coryell and more.
