Hey! check out our Shows page to see where we are playing next! We have some great shows coming soon...
2018.08.10 - Due to some confusion between Matt's personal profile on Facebook that he was using as a virtual mailing list, formerly named "Treehouse Charlatan" and the band's actual page, "Tree House Charlatan(s)", Matt has officially changed his profile name to "Didgeridoo Charlatan". Hopefully this will alleviate some tagging issues and confusion as to where band information can be found (other than our website). BUT, Facebook is a bit of a wanker and doesn't offer any way to invite a group's followers to events, so until we find a better option, the best way for us to get the word out to everyone, and make sure everyone is invited to all of our shows is for you to go and "friend" "Didgeridoo Charlatan".
Please do, also, like our Facebook Page, and follow us to be informed of any upcoming events, or to be notified of all of the pics and vids we post on our page! And for that matter, please visit and follow us on our YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and SoundCloud accounts as well! Every 'like' and follow helps! Thanks so much.
2017.XX.XX - We're really excited to announce the recent release of our first professionally recorded album - an EP, we call "Eeeeep‽". We will have an order page on the site soon, but for now... if you are interested in purchasing a CD, please contact us - or come on by the shows!
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!
