Bio

Rock and roll, as we know it, started in the 1950’s, with acts like Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Bill Haley, Chuck Berry…the list goes on. Through the years, this music has progressed and grown to fulfill a myriad of genres. Though, while one sub-genre can be radically different than the next, one constant holds true…their foundation.

The Tammys, being diverse individually, have come together to re-ignite the very foundation that rock and roll was born onto. While their music will interest ‘50’s lovers, it is destined to appeal to all ages and walks of life.

Dustin Concannon (guitar/vocals), with an affinity for ‘50’s/’60’s music, yet also a love for the “90’s alternative movement”, has managed to create the ultimate generation-gap-bridge. His songs authentically recreate the familiar tones of yester-year, but have the appeal that all people, young and old alike, want to hear. Quite simply, and not to quote Elvis, Dustin writes “GOLD”. Every song. Every time.

Andrew Minnick (drums) is a long-time friend of Dustin’s. Andrew has always been partial to “jam-band” rock, but holds tightly a true heartstring for many other genres. His percussive abilities demand attention from anyone that sees him. Being an honest musician for years now, he creates the true backbone…the strength in the structure that is The Tammys.

Completing the rhythm section is Will Martin (bass/vocals). A 26-year guitarist-turned-bassist takes pride in being able to “click” with the other members. Being a disciple of Zeppelin, Sabbath, Cream, and anything in the ‘90’s, and yet still having a taste for what’s “current” across the board, he has an ability to represent the “foundation” with a graceful integrity.

To date, The Tammys have been fortunate to receive opportunities showcasing their unique sound. Several festival appearances in southern Tennessee, as well as articles in various newspapers commending the performance they offer, have boosted their professionalism and contributed to helping them go from “$20 bar band” to large stage act. While never turning down any show, regardless of size, they are on their way to owning a solid, high-energy future on the stage.

As we, the general public, become more inundated with “sound-alike” bands, cover/tribute bands, and bands that seem to “try too hard”, rest assured that The Tammys, originally creating music from influences that span over four decades, will give ANY audience everything they want (good times, great music, and a bit of nostalgia), while preserving the foundation on which rock and roll was built.

Considering history will always repeat itself in one way or another, the foundation that’s made every great band’s stance firm will resonate strongly with The Tammys.
