David Reed & The Introverts

No.10, 10 Castle St., Gt. Barrington, MA

Won't be a Christmas carol within earshot, but you can still warm up with the BoIs and imbibe in some holiday cheer (over 100 kinds of whisky at the bar!) while you shake yer ol' bones to some Caribe-vibe folkrockin' reggae and cigar box blues!

David Reed & The Introverts - "In Concert"

New Lebanon Public Library, 550 State Route 20, New Lebanon, NY

David Reed - with a collection of "Dr. Ea$y's Sonic Boxes", a conch shell trumpet and suitcase drum - with his trio, The Introverts (Sam Earnshaw/drums and Scott McKenney/bass) returns to the NLPL for an erudite evening of hootin' 'n hollerin' whoop-di-do!  You'll hear original folk, Bar-B-Q country blues, Caribe-vibe calypso & reggae (and a raga!) like you've never heard whilst observing the flying phalanges and erstwhile wit of DR & The Introverts.  Dancing is encouraged. Libraries - not just books anymore!

IN 2010, Tamboura Productions proudly introduced our line of beautifully hand-crafted, yet primitive, cigar box guitars, diddley-bows and banjo-ukes - "Dr. Ea$y's Sonic Boxes" - Cigar Box Instruments!  

Thinking-within-the-box as he is wont to do, Dr. Easy can often be found in his tiny shop creating one-of-a-kind musical instruments from unique and colorful cigar boxes, antique license plates and hubcaps and marrying them to beautiful, select hardwoods, both native and exotic. Using vintage hand and power tools and other odd bits 'n pieces he's squirreled away over the years such as old keys, sundry plumbing parts, polished stones and interesting bottle caps, this crafty ol' codger combines his years of imagination, working with his hands and playing music to make musical instruments that are both artistically aesthetic and purely practical. Instruments range in price from $125 - $350 depending upon type, style and appointments - and electronic pick-ups can be installed as an option! 

 

 

 


 

And NEW in 2017, we are pleased to introduce our newest line: "Dr. Ea$y's Man-Cave Lighting Co."  -  Fabulous lamps and nite-lites made from new and vintage cigar boxes!  Priced from $49  to $79.

 

 Email us at tamboura2@aol.com to discuss the construction of your own cigar box guitar, or lamp!

 


 

 As Dr. Easy himself often not-so-tactfully says: "My cigar box guitars are just as happy on your wall as they are in your hands. Now, make me happy and buy one."

We invite you to have a look at this slideshow…it's just a sampling of some of the beautiful instruments coming out of the shop recently . . .
