Welcome to the home of Tea Cup Gin. We share a great appreciation for American music from the early 20th century made famous by composers, lyricists, and performers such as Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter, Ella Fitzgerald, Ethel Waters, and Johnny Mercer. Though we love jazz, blues, and ragtime standards, creating our own original material within that tradition is equally important to us. With two acoustic guitars, acoustic bass, vocals, and occasional guests on percussion, trombone, trumpet, and violin, Tea Cup Gin has very unique approach to the great American jazz tradition.
Why “Tea Cup Gin”? During the years of prohibition, speakeasies often served their drinks in tea cups to hide their illegal activities.
