The members of Tea Cup Gin share a passion for creating original material that draws from a variety of early 20th Century musical genres, including vintage jazz standards, torch songs, ragtime, delta slide blues, tin pan alley classics, chanson, cabaret, and show tunes, coupled with our own brand of edgy original lyrics.
Why the name “Tea Cup Gin”? During prohibition, speakeasies often served bootleg gin from ordinary tea cups to hide what was inside. Although our original songs may look innocent enough on the outside, they contain a deliciously intoxicating mixture of musical influences. “Tea Cup Gin” evokes vintage jazz, and is catchier than saying “you can’t judge a book by its cover.”
