Review: Stevie Nicks music is alive and well at Mulcahy’s with Gypsy (Includes first-hand account)

Gypsy is made up of Rikki Lee Wilson on lead vocals as Stevie Nicks, Kyle Wilson on lead guitar and vocals, Steve Stewart on drums and background vocals, Adam Tese on saxophone and percussion, Anthony Lombardo on the bass, Sid Cherry on the keyboard, as well as background singers Deanna Carroll and Terry Pavia.

Their set included all of the Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac favorites including “Dreams,” “Rhiannon,” “Gold Dust Woman,” the Christine McVie-penned “Say You Love Me.” “Landslide’ featured the lilting vocals of Rikki Lee Wilson, where she did the classic ballad justice, and all of these aforementioned tunes.

The inclusion of “Talk to Me” in their set was sheer bliss, especially since this tune is this journalist’s all-time favorite Stevie Nicks solo song.

They picked up the pace with their namesake song “Gypsy” and they closed their set with the Stevie Nicks classic, “Edge of Seventeen,” which was well-received.

The Verdict

Overall, Gypsy’s show at Mulcahy’s last night was a fitting tribute to the “Reigning Queen of Rock and Roll” Stevie Nicks, who will make history next week to become the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. Rikki Lee Wilson delivered on the lead vocals and the entire group rocked the music of Nicks and Fleetwood Mac as a whole.

Gypsy is worth seeing in concert whenever they come to town. Despite a few minor sound issues that were out of the band’s control, their set at Mulcahy’s garnered an A rating. Well done.
