American Gypsy

Profile:
Since 1963, this funk group of American origin has performed under diverse names such as Blue Morning, Orpheus and Pasadena Ghetto Orchestra. American Gypsy began club performances in Los Angeles in 1971, followed by a two-year tour of Spain. When the group settled in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in the early 70's, the line-up was: Joe Skeete (bass guitar), Michael Hamane (lead guitar), Lorenzo Mills (vocals), Richard James aka Ricardo James (drums), David Harrell (vocals, guitar, sax, flute) and Steve Clisby (vocals, keyboards). During their American period, individual members recorded sessions with many popular artists: Barry White, The Byrds, Young Rascals, Frank Zappa, Jefferson Airplane, Dr. John and Santana.

They continued live club performances throughout Europe and was one of the more popular r&b/rock acts on the club circuit during that time.

Numerous line-up changes took place after 1977.
