Tammy Rochelle and Joseph Bamber, aka “Chasing Summer” the Americana
Folk-Country Band, will tour through Europe May 1st –July 12th.
Chasing Summer Tours Europe this summer!
Chasing Summer, an international folk/rock duo based in Nashville, Tennessee, take the
stage this May, June and July through cities in Germany, Switzerland, England and France.
Composed of Nashville solo artists Tammy Rochelle and Joseph Bamber, Chasing Summer
delivers genuine, authentic lyrics, infectious melodies, and uplifting beats.
Their music has been described as stomp-clapping, newgrass-infused Americana with soulful
style and rich harmonies. Trading vocal leads and “milk and honey” harmonies, the romantic duo
weaves hints of old-time folk and bluegrass into their diverse and engaging set lists. Ukulele
and mandolin grooves fill out their catchy originals like “I Want You” and “Lemon Bars.”
Their music is contagious. Their funny banter and spontaneous rap songs show the chemistry
of an authentic duo, on-stage and off. Their music resonates on festival stages, club venues,
churches and house concerts alike. Chasing Summer is a lighthearted musical adventure, like
flying a kite on a summer day, reaching you right where you are.
We made some videos and recorded some Christmas Songs that we are really excited to share. The live recordings from the videos below are part of our “Christmas Songs” EP and are available as a free download on Facebook.
This summer, we had an amazing time on our European Honeymoon Tour 2012. The sound company JBL sponsored us with a sweet portable sound system which we carted on trains, plains, and autos all over Europe, allowing us to do intimate concerts in the living rooms of our friends and music fans. We had such a good time that we thought it was time to do the same thing here at home, and we wanted to offer you the chance to get involved.
What is a house concert?
A house concert is a live performance usually held in your living room, garage, backyard, etc. Usually 30-50 people attend, more if room allows! Can you imagine an intimate gathering of friends at your place for a night of tasty snacks, heartfelt music and stories? We love to make house concerts fun events, and we’ll play 2 sets of about 45 minutes of music per set, taking a break between sets to mingle and get to know the hosts and guests.
Why should I have one?
What better way to enjoy music than with your friends and family in a comfortable, cozy setting! House concerts are a great way to provide a quality music experience for you and your guests while providing an intimate, attentive audience for Tammy and Joseph “Chasing Summer”.
What will it cost me?
Most house concert hosts have a suggested donation of 10 Dollars per guest. In addition, hosts can sell snacks and beverages to make up the cost. To cover our minimum of 300 Dollars for a concert we recommend at least 30 guests at 10 Dollars per person, or the host can sponsor some or all of the cost of the concert if they desire.
What do I need to provide?
A living room, bonus room, or outdoor space with seating (chairs, pillows, blankets) for at least 30 people
Organize snacks and drinks
No sound system needed – Chasing Summer will provide their own
