Tin Drum Holiday Show

December 19


Buy Tickets $20

Meet Tin Drum, an ensemble of musicians bringing an invigorating freshness to contemporary music by exploring themes that fall outside of well-worn trends. The band’s nucleus is the husband-wife team of BURLEIGH DRUMMOND and MARY HARRIS. They are two veterans who continue to thrive with their current project as strong, experienced singing and song writing partners. Drummond was the founding drummer of progressive pop-rock group Ambrosia, a band that helped define the sound of popular music in the 1970s and 80s with a string of hits and five subsequent Grammy nominations. Drummond wears many musical hats now, playing drums, percussion, and acoustic guitar as well as providing vocals. Harris is a singer/songwriter who has honed her skills on the road and in the studio, working with the top acts of Pink Floyd, XTC, Stanley Clarke, and Jimmy Buffet. Now she provides the voice of Tin Drum and plays keyboard in the band. Enhancing the ensemble are JOHN DAVIS on bass/vocals and MARC BONILLA on guitar, mandolin, and vocals, musicians who embrace and help to further define Tin Drum’s musical philosophy.

This Southern California based band has released three CDs: Real World (1995), Small Parade (2001) and Where Have You Been? (2009). Each Album captures the musical passions of the group with their intimate and personal style. A deeper exploration reveals rich, complex arrangements and a mature look at the world that is revealed through lyrics that reflect both the ethereal content of dreams and the concrete issues of everyday living. Each individual track stands alone as an example of a gifted composition as well as a compelling layer of a greater musical structure.
