Banshee Tree was formed on the Colorado Front Range in 2014 by Thomas LaFond and grew to include Jason Bertone on bass, Nick Carter on fiddle and Michelle Pietrafitta on drums. Combining the sounds of acoustic and electronic instruments with a diverse blend of Early Jazz, EDM, Funk and Americana, BT journeys their audience through heartfelt sing-a-longs, deep funk grooves and electronic breakdowns.
Banshee Tree has had the honor to share the stage with musicians such as Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon, Bonnie Paine and Dan Rodriguez of Elephant Revival, Eric Yates of Hot Buttered Rum, Rebirth Brass Band, Big Sam’s Funky Nation and many more. They are currently planning a northwest tour for Fall 2018. You can listen to and purchase their latest release, “In the Company of Crows”, on Bandcamp, Itunes, and Spotify.
