The Tea Party will play at Metropolis December 2nd and are sure to rock the joint. The Tea Party started out in Windsor, Ontario 21 years ago. Led by vocalist/guitarist Jeff Martin, along with bassist/keyboardist Stuart Chatwood and drummer Jeff Burrows, their early influences like The Beatles evolved towards Middle Eastern music. They have opened for the likes of Page & Plant and Ozzy Ozbourne and front man Martin evokes the look of Jim Morrison, although their sound is comparable to early Led Zeppelin. The Tea Party takes a more philosophical and literary approach to the themes of their songs. Fire In The Head, Lullaby, Walking Wounded and Mantra will be among the wide array of songs performed on this homecoming of sorts. The band does not present your typical of rock “cars and girls” type tunes. “You’re in a position where you really have, I don’t want to say power, but influence, and why not use it towards something that you appreciate and could improve someone’s life,” says drummer Jeff Burrows. It all makes for a truly excellent live show. Be sure to catch The Tea Party on their Montreal stop.
