Founded by popular Asheville musician Ben Phan, this supergroup of virtuoso musicians formed around a love for two genres- bluegrass and gypsy jazz. A highly versatile group, Gypsy Grass can play classy swing jazz all day, then throw a foot stomping barn party all night. While the band can easily hold their own within each genre, they have the unique ability to fuse the two styles in an engaging, organic, and captivating way. They also have a special knack for covering popular songs with fresh and authentic style.

The full 5-piece band consists of Ben Phan on guitar and vocals, Cynthia McDermott on mandolin and vocals, Drayton Aldridge on violin and fiddle, Andrew Platt on upright bass, and Ben Saylor on banjo. They can perform in any combination of the group, from the full size band all the way down to a duo. Gypsy Grass is a truly special group of passionate professionals; their enthusiasm and love of music comes through in every note. They can melt into the background to provide the perfect atmosphere for your event, or they can keep the crowd dancing from front and center stage. They are available for weddings, ceremonies, parties, cocktail hours, receptions, dances, fundraisers, and other social gatherings. They are always happy to accommodate special song requests and the unique needs of your event.
