Hailing from Richmond, VA, The Trongone Band is touring in support of their 2017
debut album, “Keys to the House”, released on Harmonized Records. With a sound
that Paste Magazine likens to the “freak-outs of My Morning Jacket with the Muscle
Shoals-inspired Leslie speakers and The Band’s narrative storytelling”, The
Trongone Band is turning heads and making an impact on the Southern Rock ‘n’
Soul and Americana scenes.

Formed by brothers Andrew and Johnny Trongone with father John Sr on bass, The
Trongone Band (tron-GO-knee) has grown from a family affair, playing a weekly
sold out residency at Richmond’s Cary Street Cafe, to a full on touring machine
with the addition of keyboardist Ben “Wolfe” White and bassist Todd Herrington.
In the words of Live for Live Music, “the quartet has come together to create
an old-school and all-in-the-family sound reminiscent of the Allman Brothers
while still keeping it fresh with their cutting edge original compositions
that also infuse funk and blues into the mix.”

Keeping with the homegrown vibe, the band nestled into the woods outside of RVA,
tapping into Montrose Recording’s Flickinger console, one of only seven remaining
in the world. Known as the console that revolutionized the recording industry in
the 60s & 70s, the Flickinger provided the warm sounds that turned into “Keys to
the House” and brought to life what MusicFestNews described as “imagery of boxcar
drifters, rolling hills and dirt roads that are easy to close your eyes and get
lost in”.

Summer and Fall of 2017 saw The Trongone Band taking “Keys to the House” on the
road while touring in support of Americana stalwarts Reckless Kelly, American
Aquarium and Cris Jacobs. Having graced the stages of Virginia’s Roosterwalk,
Tennessee’s Riverbend Music Festival, Florida’s Riverhawk Festival, West
Virginia’s Deep Roots Mountain Revival and The Allman Brothers’ Peach Festival,
the band is primed for a busy 2018 festival season. This four-piece ensemble
may not all be related, but with a chemistry so emphatically discernible, it's
fair to call them brothers.
