The Trongone Band
Hailing from Richmond, VA, The Trongone Band is touring in support of their 2017 debut album, “Keys to the House”, released on Harmonized Records. With a sound that Paste Magazine likens to the “freak-outs of My Morning Jacket with the Muscle Shoals-inspired Leslie speakers and The Band’s narrative storytelling”, The Trongone Band is turning heads and making an impact on the Southern Rock ‘n’ Soul and Americana scenes. Formed by brothers Andrew and Johnny Trongone with father John Sr on bass, The Trongone Band (tron-GO-knee) has grown from a family affair, playing a weekly sold out residency at Richmond’s Cary Street Cafe, to a full on touring machine with the addition of keyboardist Ben “Wolfe” White and bassist Todd Herrington. In the words of Live for Live Music, “the quartet has come together to create an old-school and all-in-the-family sound reminiscent of the Allman Brothers while still keeping it fresh with their cutting edge original compositions that also infuse funk and blues into the mix.”
Powerhouse vocalist and songwriter, Adar, is based out of Charlottesville, Virginia. She formed her band in the summer of 2016, and has since gathered an enthusiastic following with her compelling original songs and her charismatic performances. ADAR draws from a deep well of original compositions, and introduces new takes on covers that transcend genres from Soul, Funk, Jazz, Rock, and more.
“Full of rich vocal harmonies, adventurous instrumentation, and a matured lyricism, ‘Earthworm’ is the sound of a humble band doing big things.” – Whurk Magazine
“A mutual love for songwriting and the recording process makes the audible chemistry strong here, as is evident on new single “Chest II (Living and Dying)”, a standout effort that blends Fleet Foxes-like vocal harmonies (serene and earthy in their overlapping bliss) with vintage guitar work that would make nostalgia revivalists like War on Drugs proud.” – Obscure Sound
