The members of Tea Cup Gin share a passion for crafting original indie-jazz-blues cocktails under the influence of an eclectic blend  of early 20th century musical genres. The band stirs together unique melodies and lyrics, served up on two blazing guitars, with impassioned vocals, dynamic upright bass & percussion, and occasional guests on trombone, trumpet, violin, sax, & more.

Why the name Tea Cup Gin?   During prohibition, speakeasies served up bootleg gin in ordinary tea cups to hide what was inside.  Although our original songs may look innocent enough on the outside, you’ll soon taste a deliciously intoxicating blend of unexpected ingredients. “TEA CUP GIN” evokes vintage speakeasy sounds, while being catchier than saying “you can’t judge a book by it’s cover!”
