dbp:quote
  • Eric Avery: The Weirz inspired me to play music because they had all these instruments lying around, I was twelve years old. It was like having a musical playground literally next door. There were three different horn players, a drummer, a bass player, guitar vibes, any instrument you could think of all in this big house. I think I started on drums. One sister, Maria, was the bass player. I remember distinctly the way her amp looked. It was like the classic kind of Ampeg stack and I remember her plucking like an open E and it just rumbled to my core.
  • All nine of the musicians are brothers and sisters. Guitarist and composer Larry, the gray-beard at 23 moans, "No one can believe that we're one family." But it's true, and here they are : Maria, 22; Estelle, 21; Tom, 20; Pixie, 18; Cathy, 17; Theresa, 15; Mike, 13; and Joan 11. "Gypsies From Bonsall" is kinda autobiographical," admits Larry. "We travel to gigs in a van and a wagon--mobile gypsies. But we have our own studio at the farm where we live. You might call us a new breed of family band."
