Tamandua is a sax/guitar/drums trio based in Boston, MA. Labels are hardly accurate, but the band plays a sort of progressive/avant-garde jazz-rock that is often influenced by various Eastern (Indian, East Asian, and Middle Eastern) ethnic music. Drummer/composer Rick Landwehr was a founding member of Ann Arbor, MI based progressive rock/pop band Ape 7. In addition to Tamandua he currently plays with The Boston Jazz Trio, Colin Stack & Novelty Act, Daniel Bennett Group and Ra Quintet. He is also a faculty member at the National Guitar Workshop's New Milford, CT campus. Guitarist/composer Joe Conley played on Chris Opperman's Purple Crayon album which was produced by Frank Zappa alum Mike Keneally. He also recently performed and recorded with Boston based indie rockers Molecule and is a member of The Boston Jazz Trio. Saxophonist/composer Rick Stone performs with Quartet of Happiness and Colin Stack & Novelty Act. All members of Tamandua are working musicians and music educators in the metro Boston area.

Saxophone in Machines is Michael Dobiel and Kelly Roberge, who harness the disparate powers of cognition and kinetics to create fully integrated musical experiences. When the cerebral austerity of computers collides with the salubrious sensuality of saxophones, results are unpredictable, to say the least. Mike and Kelly first played together May of 2010. Video of moon landings played as sounds emitted from malfunctioning computers, microphones beaten against the ground, and the devil’s horn itself, the saxophone, wielded by several performers. SiM has never looked back.
