Patty PerShayla is a former small-town pageant queen turned rock ’n’ roll powerhouse. Stomping on corner stages across her home state of Michigan, she established herself as a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, winning the 2019 WYCE Jammie Award for Best Rock/Pop Album for her solo EP, Oracle Bones. In 2019, she converted to rock ’n’ roll and joined forces with guitarist Lucas Powell and drummer Alec Klinefelter to form Patty PerShayla & The Mayhaps. After releasing their blues-infused, riff-driven debut album, Cheap Diction (2021), the group road-tested their live set, playing over a hundred shows across the Midwest and East Coast, then packed the van for a move to Nashville. Despite being a three-piece band, The Mayhaps have developed a larger-than-life sound with soaring guitar solos and compelling vocal moments, featuring a spectacle of a five-foot-two (-and-three-quarters) woman, hooting and strutting across the stage, gracefully wielding a bass guitar almost the size of her wingspan. Special guest, The Gasoline Gypsies, bring their four part vocal harmonies, dual lead guitars, and a tasty rhythm section built on drums, bass, and keys make the up music . But, the magic in their music is born of a driving work ethic that has earned them the reputation of being one of the tightest bands on the Mitten Music scene. The Gasoline Gypsies draw influence from the roots of rock, folk, bluegrass, and country to create their own style of Americana Rock, crafted and arranged to serve the song. Unplugged, they can mesmerize small listening rooms, or they can plug in and rock large venues. The eight time Detroit Music Award winners, The Gasoline Gypsies are enthusiastically followed by their fervent fan tribe, The Vagabundos. Find them at a show, and you’ll likely experience an alchemy that draws together the music, the people, and the family that is The Gasoline Gypsies experience.
