Putting the trash in Country
Tio Gringo is a combination of country like Johnny Cash and Hank Williams III with a little twist of metal, psychobilly and rock ‘n roll. The result is a mix which makes your throat go dry, and makes you hungry for beer and whiskey. Some members of this band also play in bands like The Gecko Brothers and Batmobile. That’s the experience you see, and hear, when you see them playing live.
The band has some serious D.I.Y ethics; the drumkit for instance is selfmade out of a cementtub and some pots and pans. Their records have been recorded in the home studio of Eric Haamers ( Batmobile) located in the south of The Netherlands. The goal is to keep their music as pure as it can be, without too much fancy stuff.
Tio Gringo will continue playing in venues, bars and festivals, like they did at, for example, Muddy Roots Europe fest, Speedfest and Scumbash. Don’t forget also as support act for acts like Bob Wayne, Peter Pan Speedrock, Def Americans, the Goddamn Gallows and The Pine Box Boys.
