Home Grown Tomatoes

Home Grown Tomatoes


Fun, Fresh Folk. An upbeat, organic mix of humor, energy and life in rural America.


Mixing humor and energy in every performance, a Home Grown Tomatoes show is an organic music mix of life in Iowa.

The songs are presented in a fun, family friendly program with a selection of original and unique songs designed to meet the specific needs of each event and audience.

The band's goal is to have everyone with a smile on their face, a song in their head they can't get rid of, and thinking of a fond memory of life in Iowa. Their performance is a mixture of American Gothic yearning, mid-western practicality, and stubborn romanticism mixed with humor and terminal sensibility.
