When the TALLTONES hang out at the campfire with Kurt Weill, Jimi Hendrix and Tom Waits, the sombreros will wiggle in the rhythm of swingin' cactuses moved by desert winds....
The Talltones were founded in 2006. Their basic musical genre lies between pop, rock and jazz while they are not outcasting their folkmusical influences. Standards that don't exist yet will be established and will catch your ear through creative arrangements. The musicians don't feel bound to a certain genre or style and keep on sailing happily and unpredictably the seven seas of world's music in order to search for new treasures.
Let's say ROUGH WITH LOVE

Three riders took the 'KingS' by storm
'The Talltones' aroused enthusiasm in St. Veit
If somebody makes a better version of the tune 'Riders on the Storm' by 'The Doors', it means achieving a lot. A job well done plus great entertainment.
