- Award-winning Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz bring their “Neofunkadelicfolkpoptwangrock” to Hopewell Theater with a power-trio consisting of Keith Giosa on bass/vocals/keys, Rich Bellando on drums, and Christine Havrilla on guitars/vocals/looping!
- Christine brings her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring solo and also with the support of her band, Gypsy Fuzz. Christine utilizes the soft gritty texture of her vocals to express warmth and honesty listeners quickly embrace as well as her aggressive, raw, trash-style guitar playing and looping.
- Ed Kiggins of inD Round raves, “Christine is one of the hardest working women in music. With her child prodigy-come-of-age guitar virtuosity, a supremely passionate and emotive voice, and an arsenal of wonder songs that have endeared her to a loving and devoted audience, she is in a class all of her own…we simply call her brilliant!”
Award-winning Philadelphia area native Christine Havrilla’s latest album with her band, Gypsy Fuzz, is called “Sunless Escapade” (March 2019). After embarking on an ambitious journey with her Gypsy Fuzz project in late 2011, she previously released a series of “Live Sessions” in 2014-2017, which included long-time fan favorites as well as new songs with her current band, Gypsy Fuzz. Recorded in numerous settings such as venues, living rooms, a recording studio with a live audience, an old church, etc…these volumes captured the spontaneous energy, soul-felt vibes and musical adventures that Christine brings to the stage, ANY stage! Christine utilizes the soft gritty texture of her vocals to express warmth and honesty listeners quickly embrace as well as her aggressive, raw, trash-style guitar playing and looping.
Self-taught Havrilla, who has 13 albums, 2 EPs, and over 20 years of touring under her belt, continues to venture out under “Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz” as well as a solo artist, showcasing ALL of her music with new twists, and described as “a blend of 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s rock delivered by the modern singer/songwriter.”
Christine is known for bringing her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring nationally as a solo act as well as with Gypsy Fuzz. After an inspirational time of being based in Portland, OR, Christine is once again back in the Northeast and frequenting such venues as World Café Live, Steel City, Godfrey Daniels, Jammin’ Java, Avalon Theatre, Milton Theatre, John and Peter’s, Rockwood Music Hall, The Tin Pan, to name a few.
