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.

PicnicReviewed on August 22, 2023From Mequon, WI

The Tinker Boys were very professional and performed for the full 1.5 hours that we requested. They were very personable and friendly, and played and sang very well. Everyone who attended loved their performance. My only disappointment was that I requested Bluegrass and Irish music, but the majority of their selections were country or folk. We had advertised the event as having Bluegrass and Irish music, so it would have been better if they had played what was advertised. Overall, very entertaining.

We loved having the Tinker Boys perform at our party. They were very professional and had great communication both leading up to and during the event. We would definitely hire them again for another event!
