Jake returned to the project in 2013, and the Willowflies were reborn.

5:00 pm - The Gypsy Begonias - The Gypsy Begonias were initially formed in the summer of 2009. Ryan Williams and Katy Cairo were sitting at the pool with a guitar and a new groove emerged and eventually added Chuck Wood, Jeff Bailey, and Kevin Hagie to round out the sound. The chemistry between band members spawned a new, feel good, upbeat sound and ultimately opened up a door to a new genre The Begonias coined as "Blues-grass". This sound intertwines a rockin' jam of folk, funk, that bluegrass twang, and of course the ever-important blues. Facebook | Twitter
