About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Tinker Boys are a blend of musicians from an assortment of backgrounds, strung together to form a band that explores the many sides of the acoustic genre. Using elements of vocals, guitar, fiddle, accordion, mandolin, and harmonica, Tinker Boys are a band that is able to find a niche in many acoustic laden songs. The group can range from a duo, trio, or more depending on the need of the client and available musicians. Band leader Michael Tinker Tierney also performs many solo shows for a more reserved setting. Melding influences of traditional Irish, American country and bluegrass, and folk strains, they create a sound that has something for all followers of acoustic music. By using their multi-instrumentalist talents, they are able to perform acoustic folk and folk/rock, Irish/Celtic and hills music, popular covers and classics, and driving modern acoustic rhythms to melodic and soaring spatial pieces. Tinker Boys have amassed an impressive resume of appearances at festivals, formal and corporate events, and opening slots for national acts. Their versatility is apparent as they seamlessly transition from club to pub to restaurant to party. With a bevy of both original and traditional songs in their repertoire, Tinker Boys showcase musicianship that keeps fingers and toes tapping.

WeddingReviewed on September 17, 2022From Eagle, WI

We had Tinker Boys duo for ceremony, dinner & dance - they were wonderful in all aspects: communication before the event, arriving at scheduled time - and then flexible as the day proceeded. Extremely talented & all enjoyed their sets. Wonderful musicians! Would definitely book them again

CelebrationReviewed on August 12, 2022From Elm Grove, WI

The Tinker Boys were excellent! We had a specific request for traditional Irish music during our Mom’s celebration of life. After speaking with Michael, he suggested that they played acoustically, so that they would be in the background and not the main focus. The songs were spot on and when we asked if they could play Over The Rainbow in remembrance of our Mom, they had no problems accommodating. Overall the duo that performed were thoughtful and professionally. I would highly recommend The Tinker Boys!
