about Mad Tea Party
Rife with lush harmonies, steady bass lines and a blurred sense of space and time, Mad Tea Partyâ€™s music takes you on a journey. Collaborators Ami Worthen (vocals, ukulele), Jason Krekel (vocals, guitar, fiddle) and Joe Edel (vocals, bass) have managed to forge their own postmodern path, taking elements of old-time jazz, early stringband styles, psychedelia and vintage rock 'n' roll to create something entirely unique. Their lyrics offer clever commentary on love, life, death and the music business. Their vocals, painted across a backdrop of trippy, indie, artful music, give the thought-provoking, smile-inducing Mad Tea Party an edge.
Clearly, Mad Tea Party often find themselves between genres. The All Music Guide calls it â€œAmericana for the modern generation. Shreds of ragtime, tatters of R&B, touches of blues, bursts of rockabilly, slivers of C&W, tinges of hillbilly hoe-downs, lashes of pop, snippets of rock, a feathering of folk, and evenâ€¦the hurdy-gurdy sound of the circus."
Mad Tea Partyâ€™s amusing and sharp approach to an evolved brand of folk music makes them one-of-a-kind. Their offbeat sense of humor and irony appeals to savvy listeners who appreciate the band's cleverness and cheerful energy. Whether performing in front of a festival audience or the original New York City underground punk scene, this band carries its weight. The exotic harping of the ukulele, the familiar guitar and the plucking bass will transport audiences to a different time and place â€“ both traditional and progressive, both comfortable and foreign.
