Tiki Cowboys is a "Trop-Rock", "Beach Blues" and "Tiki-Twang" musical mash-up. The urban-country-exotic sound of Tiki Cowboys primarily features ukulele, guitar, bass, drums and percussion instruments. Founder and band leader, Eric "Baron" Behrenfeld plays drums, percussion, and ukulele. Baron produces Tiki Cowboys original music on his own indie label, Blue Baron Productions hailing from Chicago, AKA the Third Coast. Musical influences range from the classic country of Hank Williams and the island-country music of Jimmy Buffet to Exotica by Arthur Lyman, Hawaiian music by "IZ", Reggae music of Bob Marley and with roots planted in Chicago Blues legends like Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters. Also in the mix is the groovy rock-blues stylings of the Grateful Dead, Steve Miller and a dash of the latin rock of Carlos Santana. The congo square flavor of the Neville Brothers creeps in too! Together, all these influences combine for the Tiki Cowboys to create a Exotic~Country~Blues experience uniquely all their own.
