Antony & The Tramps @ The Hideout Chicago

“We call it American Gypsy, because it wanders but isn’t lost.  Its a tramp, you can’t get lost when you’re in love with where you are.”

Formed in 2011, songwriter/director Antony Ablan began his search for a band–a group of musicians that could handle, with grace, the wildly eclectic and dynamic changes in mood of his writing.  “It was several months of working with all sorts of great players before I found the right fit.  When it clicked it was so obvious to me, I knew these were the right musicians, it finally worked.”
