  • Gypsydaze performs in Lakewood tonight.
Scene first highlighted the work of TeeJayy Lewins as he hit the road in December for a songwriting sojourn in Colorado. He returned to his native Cleveland with a fresh batch of material and a plan to form Gypsydays, a hard rock outfit that played a handful of shows between Akron and points north before disbanding abruptly.

But soon thereafter, Lewins reformed the band with new members and a slight variation on the spelling. Drummer Dom Williams and bassist Kyle McKenna round out Lewins' heart-pounding lead work on guitar. Gypsydaze will play two sets of music (for free!) at Around The Corner in Lakewood at 9 p.m. tonight, revitalized with new songs and a more intense approach to the stage.

"Now the objective is... We keep playing from our first song to our last song and there is no stopping," Lewins says. "We want to keep the energy peaking at all times."

There's also a show planned for May 25 on the rooftop of DNA Level C downtown.

The band plans to begin recording their material in early June; you can expect more news from Gypsydaze as the summer unfolds.

"We are bringing rock 'n' roll back to life in the Cleveland music scene," Lewins adds.
