The Classic Wineseller welcomes Gypsy Bandwagon to Friday Night Live on March 15, 2013 from 7:00-10:00pm. Small plate Italian fare is served from 5:30-9:00pm from the Classic Wineseller’s kitchen, 20 Church Street in Waynesville.

Waynesville-based Gypsy Bandwagon is comprised of two musical married couples: Lance and Carrisa Moore, and James and Karin Lyle.

Lance Moore hails from "points west" which is reflected in his guitar and vocal stylings.

Carissa Moore is a classically trained pianist and violinist who shares duties as half of the "female fiddle frenzy" at the center of Gypsy Bandwagon.The Moores met while performing with the band Celtic Knot (a group which also included Karin Lyle). The couple quickly fell in love, married, and together have a son, Cameron, who is clearly poised to continue the family musical heritage by his practice of banging pots and pans together on the kitchen floor.

Karin Lyle is also classically trained on piano and violin, as well as harp (and is self-taught in performance on an additional 20+ instruments), but professes that playing fiddle with Carissa Moore is the most enjoyment she's had in over 30 years of public performances. James Lyle (a.k.a. "Uncle Biscuit"), the percussionist of Gypsy Bandwagon, was actually the last to join the group, having been roadie on occasion for the Moores as they continued to perform with Karin Lyle after the three departed from their previous band.

Gypsy Bandwagon performs Celtic, Gypsy, Western, and Pop that is blended with an infectious sense of playful fun.
