Eli Whitney Houston & the Cotton Gin and Tonics

 Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Eli Whitney Houston & The Cotton Gin and Tonics have been around for quite a while. They've battled unicorns and frolicked with leprechauns. Once they even played blackjack with Willie Nelson. When times are tough and hearts are broken, Eli Whitney & The Cotton Gin and Tonics are sure to be around.


Hailing from Allston, MA - we are a group of musicians who thoroughly enjoy the music we make. Sounds like a simple premise, but you'll see what I mean when you see us play!

The band has been around in one form or another for the since the beginning of 2010. The current arrangement has been together since end of summer 2011. While playing mostly basement venues and bars in Boston, we want to share our music with everyone who enjoys a folkin' rock and roll set!

The music is primarily written by Elias Bouquillon, who has a diverse musical composition background in genres ranging from blues to avant garde classical music. This band is an outlet for his folk, roots, and blues curiosities. Influences include Peggy Seeger, Van Morrison, Ani DiFranco, The Nields, and David Gray, among many others.
