is the umbrella for Bob Hoot's two bands — Tent Show Troubadours and HOOT and Hollers, as well as songwriting, recording, music production, and related music marketing and management.
Tent Show Troubadours is a 5- or 6-piece band which plays Alternative Rock and Alternative Country — original songs and some of our favorite covers. TST has recorded seven albums and two EPs of original songs. Bob Hoot writes songs with smart lyrics in styles infused with Northern Country, Rock-a-billy, New Wave, Roots, and Gypsy Jazz — rockers to ballads. The music is rich in harmonies.
HOOT and Hollers consists of Bob Hoot and one to three guest players who join in live performance. The vibe is primarily Rock-a-Billy, Country, Americana and Rock in semi-acoustic and electric arrangements. HOOT and Hollers recording projects are driven by Hoot's songwriting. Session musicians include musicians and vocalists from Tent Show Troubadours, local musicians and transplants now in Nashville and California.
