Tuscadero y Tuscadero is a “post- suburban Americana” quintet out of Boulder, CO. Their sound dwells somewhere in the borderlands of Hank Williams and the Violent Femmes. With a unique fusion of piano, banjo, double bass, acoustic guitar, and drums, Tuscadero y Tuscadero combines Ben Hanna’s contemporary, elusive, and often charming song writing with some of the Front Range’s finest musicians. Composed of pianist, Ben Gallagher (Radical Knitting Circle, The Widow’s Bane and formerly Danny Shafer’s Unknown Americans), drummer Alex Venetucci (Radical Knitting Circle and Junktet), No One Cares String Band and former Riverbend Bluegrass picker Keith Summers on banjo, and Back to the Woods and Hot Club of Pearl Street whiz kid Matt Cantor on double bass, Tuscadero y Tuscadero creates a sound that pulls from folk, country, punk, bluegrass, jazz and old school rock n’ roll.
