TMBG US Tour 22.jpg

Hello! John F. here. It is a very exciting moment as we embark on this, the 2nd magnificent leg of our US tour. We start with a long run of sold out shows on the West Coast, along with scheduled appearances on WTF and Conan, then trek across the Midwest and Northeast! If you haven’t heard, these are all “An Evening With TMBG” and that means a big night out! We start early with no opening act and play two sets. This expanded set up allows us to include many different songs from our repertoire with new selections from I Like Fun, Apollo 18, and Mink Car joining all the classic TMBG favorites. While the show changes almost every night we always make a point to spotlight John L.’s contra alto clarinet as well as the Curt Ramm trumpet. And yes there is a show within a show—we have the Quiet Storm; a set of new arrangements of songs where it’s often quiet but always stormy.
