>Mad Tea Party in Concert


Mad Tea Party will be featured in concert for reopening night of Broad Street Music in New Bern, NC on Friday, August 13. Doors open at 8:00 p.m. and the show begins at 9:00 p.m. Admission is $10.00. Broad Street Music is located at the Journey Cafe at 411 Broad Street in downtown New Bern, NC.

Mad Tea Party brews up rock ‘n’ roll, garage-pop and honky tonk to create a fresh and intoxicating sound. “It’s B-52s meets Buddy Holly with a lot more thump.” Musical conspirators Ami Worthen and Jason Krekel serve up an exciting live show to music lovers thirsty for upbeat, original refreshment. Delicious harmonies glide over electrified ukulele, juke-joint guitar, scratchy fiddle, and pulsing foot percussion. Catchy songs are steeped in raw rockabilly with shreds of doo wop and devilish blues. Drink deep – Mad Tea Party concocts a musical recipe that will make you boogie.

The band’s dynamic show has been catching people’s attention across the country. Metro Santa Cruz described it this way, “More a spectacle than a traditional two-person band, Mad Tea Party consists of vocalist and ukulele strummer Ami Worthen and guitarist, fiddler and drummer Jason Krekel. As Worthen reels out charming and quirky songs with an arch sense of humor, Krekel does double- and triple-duty, creating the illusion of a much bigger band with only two arms and two legs. It’s a sight to behold…but Mad Tea Party’s unique sound is just as worthy of note. A bubbly amalgam of juke-joint blues, pop, tiki exotica and rockabilly, the band has honed an approach that is unique and affecting without being too precious.”
