ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - One of the bedrock bands on which KSHE built its foundation as a progressive-rock powerhouse, Gypsy has a long and deep relationship with St. Louis. The band became a KSHE favorite and developed a rabid local fan base.

The documentary traces the band`s evolution over more than 50 years. St. Louis connections abound: Ron Stevens, a former KSHE DJ, is a featured interview. Significant attention is devoted to the band`s appearance at the 1977 Superjam at Busch Stadium; and the film concludes with footage from a 2015 concert at the Wildey.

You cans see the film at the St. Louis International Film Festival on Saturday, November 5 at 2:00pm at the Tivoli.
