Hailing from the beautiful Mountain State of West Virginia, The Hillbilly Gypsies have been making and performing their own brand of old time bluegrass and original mountain music for over a decade! Formed in 2001 from a chance meeting at the now infamous Wednesday night old time jam in Morgantown, WV; The Hillbilly Gypsies have been pickin’ n’ grinnin’ and entertaining their loyal fans ever since.

The band is best known for their high-energy live performances and have become a crowd favorite at major festivals, fairs and concert venues all across the mid-Atlantic region and abroad. They perform in the old fashioned style, playing around a single vintage ribbon microphone. This “Old Timey” approach adds an authentic high-energy barn party atmosphere to their show. Watching the whole band work around the mic is like taking a trip back in time. It’ll sure make you want to get up and dance!

..and don’t let the flash of their lively stage performance and choreography fool ya, these folks are all highly skilled musicians and seasoned entertainers! Their lightning fast award-winning picking skills and musical arrangements mixed with natural comedic wit and high lonesome mountain vocal harmonies are sure to catch your ear right away. Combine that with a knack for original songwriting and a strong passion for old time and traditional music and this makes for an all-around authentic and exciting musical experience that you won’t soon forget. One listen and you’ll know that you are getting the real deal! The Gypsies are more than a band; they are a tight knit family, mindful of tradition but bold explorers of new and authentic styles of acoustic music and entertainment!

Goldwing Express is made up of Three Native American brothers and their father. A segment of their performance is dedicated for their Indian Heritage. Each Brother wears his very own Native American Headdress which represents the Creek Indian Tribe from which their Mother is from. This family music show comes from Okmulgee, Oklahoma. Now the family resides in Branson, Missouri producing their own music show along with many appearances throughout the United States and into Canada.

Bob Baldridge, the father plays mandolin and sings lead for the group. He also does a lot of the comedian work for Goldwing Express. His music career began early when he and his Brothers and Sister sang in the early 70’s and 80’s. The family would gather at Grandmothers house and have all day singing’s. Bob wanted to form his own family band shortly after.

Along came Paul, Steven, and Shawn. Paul is the eldest son. He sings high tenor and plays the guitar for Goldwing Express. Paul does more of the traditional bluegrass singing for the group. Paul has won several awards throughout his career.

Steven is the middle age son, who sings mostly baritone and plays the banjo. Steven loves to put Gospel music in the show and wows the crowd with his traditional sounds on the banjo. He is also responsible for the management of Goldwing Express.

Shawn is the youngest Brother, he plays the upright bass fiddle and sings all the low end notes. Crowds gather to here Shawn sing songs like “Hello Darlin”, “Lay you down”, and “Long Black Train”. He likes to spice things up a little bit by sounding off a long train whistle from his voice!

Their Mother was a full blood Native American Creek Indian from Oklahoma. Along with Bob, they both decided to buy instruments for the boy’s. Twenty five years later, they are headlining most Bluegrass Festivals and various styles of concerts around the United States.

The name Goldwing Express came from their Mother. We used to ride Honda Gold Wing’s in the late 80’s. That’s when Mom decided to name us the “Goldwing Express”.

The family also performs in Branson, Missouri throughout the year. This year we’ll average over 250 show dates across the country. We travel Nation Wide in a 2004 Entertainer Prevost Coach. Goldwing Express is all about entertaining folks. We love and strive to make folks happy when they come to see Goldwing Express in concert.
