Tin Pan Blues Band

Take equal parts Tom Waits and Django Reinhardt, then add a splash of Smith & Cross and you’ve got Tin Pan, speakeasy-era drinkin’ music at its best.  Enjoy.

Tin Pan appreciate a fine cocktail and enjoy playing to audiences who share their enthusiasm for cocktail culture. After all, the music they play is reminiscent of a time that was very important in cocktail history: prohibition and the years leading up to and following it. Clifton Hyde, the guitarist of Tin Pan, is crazy about Amari right now and has about seven different varieties at his house and he keeps trying to make new stuff. Jesse, trumpet player and lead vocals for the band, is a big fan
Vieux Carré.

Tin Pan playfully describes themselves as “Ray Charles and Tom Waits at a Bourbon Street Parade”. With their obvious embracement of early 20th century Blues, Jazz and American Popular Song mixed with the ability to captivate modern audiences, they have created music that truly thrives in both past and present.

They really do capture the mood of an era when good music and good drink mingled heavily in dark, smokey taverns and underground clubs.  Give them a 10-minute listen and they’ll have you dancing, mixing up Prohibition-era cocktails and twisting up you mustache in no time.

Did I mention that they have a fire breathing sax player?  Check this out.
