Tumble Down Badger Keeps it Simple – Local Band Profile
Andrew Kirk was walking to a park in Richland when he heard an interesting sound coming from a porch. It turned out to be Tumble Down Badger -- a local band made up of bored musicians who found each other on Craigslist.
They decided on the name Tumble Down Badger because they like how it localizes them, making it kinda clever, they also liked how it created an image of a badger rolling down a hill.
They have only been together for three months, but within that time they have created a sound that's all their own.
They say they're all over, but they play a little bit of alternative and reggae influences.
Bruno Ginieis, the lead singer, says he personally is stuck in the late 1990s. Holly Mellgren, percussion, and Brandon Mellgren, bass, said their tastes are always changing, feeling that the weirder the instrument the more they like it.
They may only have three original songs, but that doesn't stop them from doing what they love. They have learned to play over 10 songs that they practice on their porch.
Expect to find them at local open mics within the next few weeks -- or even on the porch where Andrew found them.
