Bombadil

BandFolk

A theatrical experience that rumbles while the sun abstains. A train, a pyramid, a kazoo, and you are involved. So are lamps. Smiling is encouraged...as well as crying and dancing...i think our perfect concert would have a Chinese buffet open to all attendees in the middle of the venue.

Biography

I just realized the other day our band has been either the victim or criminal in numerous felonies:

kidnapping
larceny
arson
Misprision of Felony
Battery

Our guitar player was kidnapped and robbed while living in Bolivia - $100 and his pride were taken.

Our piano player burned down our practice house - literally - our equipment still smells like smoke.

Our bass player was intentionally hit by a truck. He is ok, but runs a little crooked.

Our drummer has kept himself out of felony territory .

The music reflects this...in a fantastical, upbeat way that makes children and old ladies smile.
