Tango Alpha Tango
Tango Alpha Tango is a four-piece Portland, OR rock & roll outfit lead by virtuosic guitarist, singer/songwriter, Nathan Trueb. He is joined by his wife Mirabai on bass guitar, Joey Harmon on drums, and Daniel Jones on keys and guitar. These northwest natives have been honing in on their fusion of blues and rock on stages from Portland all the way to Austin, TX for SXSW and everywhere in between since 2008. The quality of their music will reel you in with memorable melodies and catchy guitar hooks peppered with funky bass-lines, driving beats, and psychedelic keys. You'll want to catch their live show any time you can because the group's energy is infectious and leaves audiences in a sweaty frenzy screaming for more.
After spending several years on the road singer/songwriter Casey Burge retreated from music to work on farms in the east and west of the country. He returned to his hometown of Kansas City at the end of 2010 to pursue his new band Minden. He recruited longtime friends and musical veterans Ryan Johnson (drums), Evan Houston (bass), and James Taylor (guitar) to help him realize his swollen catalog of songs. Minden quickly worked out a set and began booking performances immediately. Existing outside of fresh and cleverly-named genres, Minden plays pop music, the classic art of creating songs that are interesting and relatable.
During a fertile two-week period in February 2011, Burge wrote and recorded demos for several new songs. Two songs from these sessions were brought into the studio with the full-band in March, resulting in a forthcoming 7" single on hometown label The Record Machine. As of April the band has only played a hand full of shows but has already shared the stage with the likes of Appleseed Cast, A Lull, The Casket Lottery, Bird's and Batteries, Pepper Rabbit, and played as part of Middle of the Map Fest. With the release of their debut 7" Minden plans to hit the ground running and will be on tour regionally this summer.
