Well, dear readers, it’s been a minute, hasn’t it? Please don’t mistake our online absence for inactivity! Let me assure you, we’ve been everything but quiet.
2017 was quite the breakthrough year for us. Through new relationships with booking agencies and contacts met (largely through the Western Arts Alliance) we’ve finally broken into the next level of venues (not literally). Last year, we began performing in more Main St. Theaters, Performing Arts Centers, and free, large, outdoor performances. We’ve expanded our ensemble and are currently performing with a much more lush instrumentation, including clarinet, bass clarinet, trumpet, trombone, piano, guitar, bass, drums, and of course the kazoo. We’ve written some new songs, traveled to far away places (and dealt with the accompanied gastronomical complications), and hell, one of us even got married.
2018 is the year that we explode onto the national scene like a crate of fireworks in the back of a pickup driven by a haphazard cigar smoker. It’s the year we paint our names across the walls like a toddler with a new set of Crayolas. It’s the year that we look back on when we were older and ask ourselves ‘What the hell were we thinking?”, and we couldn’t be more excited.

We’re currently booking a tour in the Pacific Northwest for March 14th-17th. Stay tuned to tumbledownhouse.com (our better yet, our Facebook Page!) for announcements!
We’ll be performing in Reno and Las Vegas in July and will announce those dates as the time draws near! In the meantime, here’s our video we finished at the end of last year for our song, an Ode to Josephine Baker. May she serve as an inspiration to us all. If you’re not familiar with her story, stop everything and check out her unbelievable life story.
Rock steady babe,
