Bloody Tambourine and the Musical Mafia
One night, a blood-spattered tambourine arrived on drummer Derek Kemp’s porch. Where did it come from? What did it mean? Based in Fort Wayne, Indiana and Chicago, Illinois, Bloody Tambourine and the Musical Mafia imagines the answer to those questions: a creepy band of cut-throat mobsters out for blood and murder! Their macabre and whimsical ragtime style sizzles with songs about everything from revenge and greed to the downright ghostly and spiritual. They’ll perplex you on piano! They’ll beguile you on guitar! They’ll daunt you on drums! When that bloody tambourine appears, the Musical Mafia isn’t far behind!
A collaboration with Eden Productions, Bloody Tambourine and the Musical Mafia will be releasing their music video and single ahead of their debut album. "Founding Fathers," explores the charm and nostalgia of haunted sites from their youth.
