Trailside Phantoms were recently ranked in the "Top 10 Americana Bands" in the St. Petersburg/Tampa area, and continually rank in the top 5 for Americana music in our area.
The 5 or 6-piece band comprises mandolin, upright bass, guitar, drums and keyboard/accordion and sometimes banjo and is teeming with great original songs and a few covers. Over 3 hours of music all together!
The band has recently played for the Mayor of St. Pete, performed live on WMNF Tampa and WSLR Sarasota, are the "house band" for the St. Petersburg History Museum, and they have been referred to several festivals/shows in the state of FL by John McEuen of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.
Trailside Phantoms brings together a rich mix of influences.
We seamlessly blend elements of Americana, funk, country, jazz, and blues to create our signature "Americana Weird" sound.
This high-energy group passionately delivers a driving, eclectic live set that is as diverse as its members. Creating music with universal appeal to lovers of all genres of music, this band is sure to get any crowd up and dancing!
