Please help us finish recording our debut album, "Shortcuts, Backup Plans, & Detours"!

Ello Mates!

We are currently in the process of recording our debut record, "Shortcuts, Backup Plans, & Detours" which we hope to have released by May 2012. The album is full of all sorts of stories of my life including the time I spent as a full-time touring musician. I've never had the time or the financial means to be able to make it to a professional recording studio to work on my own songs, and now that my career as a full-time touring drummer is on an extended break, I wanted to share my life with everyone who ever wanted to listen and support my dreams and musical endeavors.

"Shortcuts, Backup Plans, & Detours" is being recorded by the incredibly talented Pittsburgh based producer, Buddy Hall, at Beacon Hill Recording Studio. Unfortunately, mid recording I hit a bit of a road block financially and need your help to finish this project. Please take a look at some of the pledges to the right, any support you can offer will be forever appreciated.

Signing off,
Giuseppe Capolupo

Gypsy and His Band of Ghosts:
Giuseppe "Gypsy King" Capolupo - Lead Vocals / Guitar
Tony Tortella - Bass Guitar / Vocals
Scott Maniglia - Drums / Auxiliary Percussion / Vocals
Diego Byrnes - Lead Guitar / Vocals
