Stretching the boundaries of traditional roots rock and Americana, Oakland-based Bigelow’s Treehouse places harder edged boogie shuffles and deep funk right alongside it’s bluesy and occasionally twangy grooves.

Since it’s incarnation in 2008, Bigelow’s Treehouse has performed in all types of venues in every major city across California, and has shared the stage with Bay Area legends such as Tia Carroll and Little Wolf & The Hellcats.

Bigelow’s Treehouse is currently recording their debut album for release in 2014. Their lineup consists of Andrew Balmat (guitar/vocals), Kitt Thompson (bass), Adam Grant (drums), Randy Johnson (saxophone) and Jason Venet (keyboards). Their single, The Herd, features guest vocalist Emily Zisman and fiddle by Ryan Avery.
