    http://www.thetumblers.us/ The band has an obvious and intimate familiarity with Merle Haggard's twang and Nick Cave's gloomy histrionics. -- Willamette Week This is country country, nothing else. For a genre that has spent most of the past few decades either re-packaged as blue-collar indie rock or otherwise left exclusively to the inept, the inarticulate and totally inauthentic, it's unbelievably refreshing to find The Tumblers doing something this stolidly traditional... even purist. -- Oregon Music News It has only taken us about 6 years to book this show, no big deal but you should be here!
