for now

The Tree House Charlatans - a varied group of talented, experimental and downright chill musicians all enjoying a relaxed jam at the Natti Tree House. The group was founded with Matt, Jim and Eli for an art gallery opening at Rocky Neck in Gloucester in 2011. Originally, they went under the name "The Quarrymen," but found that it had already been snagged by some old Brits (Lennon, McCartney). Matt put it like this: "Basically, we decided to practice once, drink twice and just have fun!"

To carry on the momentum of the first gig, the group started hosting summer gatherings on the deck under Matt's tree house - a secluded oasis in the Gloucester woods (where only the local wildlife complains if the music gets to loud).  Folks from all over- including the North Shore, the country on a whole and even some from as far away as New Zealand - have joined in the good music, good company and simply enjoying the great outdoors.  As the months grew colder, the group distilled down to a manageable core and the focus of the group shifted from open jams to more structured songs.  The band seems to lean toward a bluegrass sound with a bit of  jazz and folk/ rock influence.  When asked "What type of music do the Tree House Charlatans play?" Matt Natti smiles and says "Didgeridoo-grass!"

 

This website aims to provide some history about the group and the tree house, some photos, video and audio clips for your enjoyment, and ways that you can contact us in case you would like to talk about arranging a show. You can also learn a little about some of the musicians who have been part of this magical event.

We hope that you enjoy yourselves on this website, and you especially enjoy the music - at least as much as we had making it. We will update it as frequently as we are able. Thank you for checking out the Tree House Charlatans!
