The Papermoon Gypsys hit the Coast Again

“Diana Rein and the Papermoon Gypsys brought a rollicking show to the Blue Beet. Diana’s bluesy voice and Kenny ‘Big Daddy’ Williams’ blistering lead guitar on their version of Jimi Hendrix’ classic “Stone Free” showed why they’re one of the hottest new groups on the scene today. Rein’s guitar propels the music with a rocking sound, the interplay of her guitar carrying both rhythm and some excellent solo work. All told, Papermoon Gypsys provide a hard driving blues sound that’s hard to beat”

– Kenny “Big Daddy” Williams, Papermoon Gypsys lead guitarist/songwriter/vocalist

Orange County’s hottest new blues-rock band is Papermoon Gypsys, who perform locally at Mozambique Steak House, 1740 S. Pacific Coast Highway, on Wednesday, November 2. Showtime: 8:00 pm. $5. Info: (949) 715-7777 or

Papermoon Gypsys are co-fronted by vocalists-guitarists, Diana Rein and Kenny “Big Daddy” Williams, along with a brand-new, very accomplished rhythm section featuring bassist Baba Elefante (Ron Kobayashi; also voted top bass player in Bass Magazine), and drummer, Ray Weston (Wishbone Ash, Iron Butterfly, Bjorn).

Rein, also known as the “Six-String Siren,” has just released a new album, Long Road (Rude Mood Records). “Rein proves herself multi-talented by not only writing, recording, and producing Long Road, she also sings and plays lead, bass, and rhythm guitars, ” writes National Blues Review. On Long Road, Rein – a big Stevie Ray Vaughan  fan who moved to Southern California from a hotbed of the Blues, Chicago – displays a sharp tongue, driving blues-based guitar, and melodic solos.

Williams is a longtime SoCal musician who, in addition to Papermoon Gypsys, also fronts another Orange County-based band, the blues-rock trio, Bluespower. “Big Daddy,” as Williams is commonly called, is also co-owner of Kenny’s Music in Dana Point in addition to the Host of the weekly “Laguna Blues” radio show every Friday night on KX93.5 FM. “Big Daddy is one of those guitarists whose showmanship comes naturally,” writes Ed Simon of the Los Angeles Beat.
