The Texas Chainsaw Horns came together twelve years ago in the suburbs of Washington D.C. Members originate from all over the continent – Texas, NYC, Puerto Rico, Canada – but now maintain a family/home base in the DC/VA/MD area. The main focus of the band is the tight, five-piece horn section featuring trumpeter/arranger Tony Murtha, whose work has been featured on American Idol, the NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show, the Disney Channel, Comedy Central’s Colbert Report, Orange County Choppers, and commercials for Subway and the Washington Nationals. With almost a dozen members, the band draws on a wide variety of influences, ranging from Ray Charles and James Brown, to ZZ Top and The Tower of Power. Whiskey & Knives, the band’s first CD, received the Washington Area Music Association’s (WAMA) Wammie award for Best Debut Recording of 2009. Beam Me Up Elvis, their follow up CD, features an additional 12 original songs and won another Wammie in 2012 for Best Blues / Traditional R& B Recording. The band members are from various musical backgrounds and have done everything from touring with Sting to performing for the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
