From the Beginning
The thing about using a suitcase for your bass drum
is that you can use it to carry your stuff when you are
done. The logic seams flawless when applied to Indianapolis’
stripped down acoustic trio that employs nylon string
guitar, upright bass, accordion and mandolin in addition
to the infamous suitcase drum kit to produce the
premiere Jazzpop/Eurofolk experience.

Tonos Triad strives to be
a band that can incorporate itself into the visual and
performing arts culture in Indianapolis and elsewhere.
Though taking inspiration from such American innovators
as John Zorn, Tom Waits, and Tin Hat Trio, Tonos
Triad condenses its sound into listener friendly pop formats.

“If you don’t like one of our songs, just wait a few minutes
and we’ll play something completely different.”
