Not so long ago in a basement not that far away, in the deepest darkest depths of New Jersey, Tigerman was born. The band is a highly improvised, mostly instrumental product of the diverse music backgrounds of its members who met while studying music at William Paterson University. Consisting of Adam Carelli on Alto and Tenor Sax. Jay Gogel on Keys. Kurt Althoff on Guitar. Joe Stracquatanio on Bass. And Rory Burns on Drums. These five musicians possess the musical strength, speed, agility and ferocity of a Tiger in its most primal state. Tigerman’s sound blends elements of funk, jazz, rock and the bizarre into the unique blend of groovy jams and epic aural journeys.
