The Belfast Gypsies…

were what remained of the Irish group Them – without lead singer Van Morrison.  They formed in 1965 and continued on with little success (none beyond “Gloria’s Dream”) in the U.S.  The group included former Them members Jackie McAuley (keyboards) who later went on to join The Freaks of Nature, and brother Patrick McAuley (drums).  Neither brother were original members of Them – both arriving to replace others in 1964 but they were present on some of the U.S. Them charting records.  The other two members were Ken McLeod (guitar) and Mark Scott (bass).
