TuTu Much

 

     WHAT'S A TUTU?  In the West Indies, and specifically the Virgin Islands, the conch shell trumpet still is used as a marine signaling device.  It was named "tutu" by the indigenous Taino people and the onomatopoeic moniker still stands.

     TUTU MUCH is the little band with the BIG sound - a dynamic duo that pairs singer/songwriter David Reed's emotionally charged vocals, lushly distinctive acoustic guitars/banjo/harmonicas/cigar box instruments & percussion together with groovemeister Sam "Samster" Earnshaw's remarkably jazzy drums & percussion.

     TUTU MUCH is an electracoustic duo that pulse with drivin' rhythm and worldbeat groove! The TuTus create music that's as refreshing as a Caribbean breeze and funky as a backstreet SoHo cafe. Since 1999, when not occupying the stages of local cafes & art lounges, TuTu Much escapes to the Caribbean islands of St. John & St. Thomas for a winter tour where they perform, make art and collect songs for their eclectic repertoire.
