Still working on that hot first release.



Tailgate Poets formed in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, Texas, in 2013. Drummer Martin McCall and guitarist/singer/songwriter Andy Chiles have played together since 1989 with the early Deep Ellum band Hai Tex, and the popular world rock ensemble Ooga Booga. Both bands performed regional venues and festivals including Club Dada, Poor David’s Pub, Denton Arts and Jazz, Houston International and Main Street Festivals. Both drew respectable followings and enjoyed regional airplay. 

In addition to veterans McCall and Chiles, Tailgate Poets features newcomer Sandy Hall-Chiles on bass and vocals. Her natural rhythm and solid bass establishes the foundation of the Tailgate Poets sound.

Tailgate Poets' roots-rock style fuses elements of rock, blues, country and jazz into a mix of original songs and a few choice covers. Depending on the venue, Tailgate Poets performs as a core trio or will supplement its lineup with additional musicians. High-energy fun, Tailgate Poets engages audiences with strong rhythms, energetic performances and relevant lyrics unique to the Baby-Boomer generation but enjoyed by other groups as well.
