Formed in 2005, this Belfast based band have their roots set in the blues delivered with a powerful hard rock style, and after playing their first local show, they have been renowned for one of the most energetic rock acts on the scene. The Flying Gypsies have gained a reputation for their flamboyant and often vaudeville styled shows, which at times have bordered burlesque.
Fronted by gypsy crooner Ryan McCormick; Rory Mc Kee, Chris Bateman and Craig Meek make up the ranks that are The Flying Gypsies.

Hope you all enjoyed the recent batch of gigs!
We have been in the studio again recording On the Road and Mr Quinn. And Crown Night again, cause let's be honest, the current recording up there is crap because we rushed it. They should be done soonish.
Oh yea, the guy who records all our stuff is the lovely Michael Barr. If you pay him he may also record for you. In a cool studio. If interested, ask us to put you in touch.
And one last thing, all being well we're due to play a battle of the bands in central Dublin next Feb/March/April. If you're interested in coming on an epic road trip/adventure, contact us now!
That is all.
If you know of any gigs mention/tell us!
(And Merry Christmas!)

Well everybody, you may want to know what the deal has been with us lately. Or you may not. But you're going to be told anyway. First thing we are going to make clear:
We are still together and rockin'!
As the story goes, we are now all grown up and are at various universities about the place. Term time gigs may be a bit thin on the ground at times. However, during holidays it is business as usual at TFG. That means we're organising gigs, possibly recording more material, and writing new material!
And because we're students, our holidays are always way longer than the schools/adults work. So it's all good.
During term time, if anything relatively big comes up, you can bet we'll get on planes ASAP (the two of us who have to).
But anyways, so folks, we are very much still a band. Repeat - we have not cleared off! There is already a gig on at Auntie Annies on the 16th December - get you and your mates down and let's have an awesome night. Chris is (well, supposed to be!) working on getting us a night at QUB Student's Union. As for outside the country, we are working on spreading our stuff further afield.
So, keep checking back here for updates, come and rock out at the future gigs, and if you know anybody who is putting on any sort of gig night - give us a suggestion!

Last Saturday three quarters of the band took to the Nokia Rock up & Play unsigned stage at the Reading music festival. We were basically chucked on at midday and given enough time for one song, which was TCC. Due to Ryanair doing a bad job, Ryan didn't make it onto the plane, so instead Chris covered vocals. A video should soon be up on the myspace, or instead visit www.rockupandplay.com and search for us.
As for Men on Stilts, well the tracks are up, but it'll be available to buy someday!
