Feeling a bit camera shy


The Tables formed in 2002 out of the ashes of an older band. At that time, Jacobb T. Sackett-(Vocals, Drums, Synthesizer) and Randall Post-(Vocals, Guitar) started making homemade demos on a mixer in a tiny office in Jacobb's house. They used a drum machine for the drums. They soon compiled the songs into an album by the name of "Gingerbread Real Estate". Realizing they needed a bass player, Jacobb asked his longtime girlfriend, Ashley Nitchals-(Bass) if she wanted to fill the spot, and she did in February of 2003. After months of hardcore practicing and the finishing of their very lo-fi sophomore album "My, How The Tables Have Turned!", The Tables made their television debut on Boise, Idaho's Public Access Channel, TVTV Channel 11. It was a sort of experiment because the guy who booked The Tables for TVTV was teaching a class of high school kids how to film people, run sound, etc. So the show wasn't as good as it could have been, but all the kids there enjoyed the show. The Tables then went on to play some very successful house shows in downtown Boise, and they had their first "venue" gig at The Neurolux in downtown Boise. That night The Tables cranked out about 14 to 15 songs in an hour, rocking the joint every minute. The show was a wonderful success, and just 8 days later, The Tables made their internet radio debut with a radio show on There was an hour of music and interviews with the band members, and it helped increase some sells on CDBaby. The band went on to play some more gigs, and their most recent gig at a place called JD's & Friends in downtown Boise was an amazing success. Fans were screaming, jumping around and dancing. It almost brought tears to the hard working band's eyes.

The Tables music has a very original and unique sound. Their sound has grown and you can listen to their songs from 2002, as compared to the ones on this EPK, and you could tell the difference completely. The Tables also had a number 1 song on mediafeast back when it was known as in 2002. It stayed on the number 1 slot for a week. The song was off of "Gingerbread Real Estate" and it's called "Hard Luck Friend", and if the mood catches The Tables right, they'll probably play it at a gig.

Over the last three years, through numerous reviews, fanmail, and just comments on their music, The Tables' unique sound has been said to have a mix of bands like: Pixies, U2, Radiohead, Interpol, and Joy Division.

The Tables aren't just indie rock, but a great band who puts on a great show, and even though they're only a trio, they have tremendous power and are very energetic, outgoing people who are in love with music and their music. "We're just a few art freaks trying to make our way to the top", Jacobb T. Sackett says. "But there's a softer side to us," says Randall Post. "We still like watching Disney movies".
