TARANTELLA was founded at the dawn of the New Millennium, when singer Kal Cahoone, approached multi-instrumentalist John Rumley after a show with Slim Cessna's Auto Club.

Fresh from Argentina (and a musical/romantic collaboration with musician/composer Christian Basso), she was desperate to start a band, and found herself drawn to Rumley's talent and style. So she gave him a demo-tape. John liked the songs, and was inspired to write some new ones. All they needed was a band!

John recruited Slim Cessna band-mates Daniel Grandbois (bass) and Ordy Garrison (drums, now of Wovenhand). Next, Kal and John spotted Kelly O'Dea fiddling away with Maraca 5-0 and decided she would be a good addition to the band. Finally, John wanted Denver legend Bob Ferbrache (Absinthe Studios, Blood Axis) to complete the band.

Eventually, Chad Johnson took over on drums, and Shane Trost joined in 2005.

"A great flame follows a little spark." -Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy

TARANTELLA MUSIC is the union of a journey through South American folklore, bolero, and tango, the dusty passion of the Old West, and memories of love lost along the way- not to mention some 60s rock and 80s New Wave!

A band is the sum of its parts, and the distinctive sound of TARANTELLA comes from the collaboration of its members. Together they create a sound that is roughly romantic and positively original.
