Tiger Tiger American Indian Rock n' Roll Band www.TigerTigerMusic.com Tiger Tiger (Lee & Stephen Tiger) is not an ordinary American rock n' roll band! Inspired by the nature of the Florida everglades, their American Indian culture and Chief Buffalo Tiger (their Father) of the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida, the brothers' career highlights include initial recordings at Woodstock (later released in Germany on Sony's ZYX label). Their love of music and performing has led them to international stages as feature artists worldwide including concerts in Spain, Germany, France, USA & SOUTH AMERICA. In the US the Tiger brothers rocked audiences with their unique 'native heart beat music' at New York's Gas Light Lounge in Greenwich Village and the Rolling Stone Club. From the east coast the band went on to hit the USA's west coast 'LA scene', performing at such well-known venues as Thee Experience on Sunset Drive in Hollywood, Whiskey-A-Go-Go, the Troubadour and Bag O' Nails alongside such groups as Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention. The band was also featured in concert at the Atlanta Pop Festival with Traffic, Allman Brothers, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Lesley West & many more. Based in Miami, Florida national recording artists Tiger Tiger have headlined and graced the stages for numerous festivals and concerts over the years. They were featured in the First Miami Pop Festival along with Jimi Hendrix, Procal Harum, & Led Zepplin. At The Seminole Tribe's Big Rock Pow Wow they performed with Chicago, Edgar & Johnnie Winter, Grateful Dead & many more groups of that era. At Pirate's World in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida they performed along with several marquee acts, including Jefferson Starship, Blackfoot, Leonard Skynyrd, Steppenwolf, Deep Purple, Guess Who, Charlie Daniels, Quick Silver & Foxy. As you acquaint yourself to the enclosed audio materials and website you will understand why these accomplished and respected musicians were requested by Chuck Berry & Bo Diddley to be their backing band. Their last commercially released album Southern Exposure received a Grammy nomination. Their self-produced music video 'Lay Your Burden Down' took second place for Best Music Video at the 2000 American Indian Film Festival in San Francisco. The Tigers have recently completed their most exciting Native American cultural CD, 'Peace From The Everglades, Dedicated To The Survival Of The Miccosukee & Seminole People of Florida.' This CD received two Native American Music Award (NAMMY) nominations in 2005, for Best Pop/Rock Recording & Song/Single of the Year for 'Heya.' Future plans include touring and promotional opportunities in support of the new CD.
Tiger Tiger at their best!

"I've been following Tiger Tiger for many years. The first cassette tape I had of their was taped in their garage! I loved it, and played it over and over until I wore it out! My favorite song on this CD is "Landlord" it is wonderful! If you enjoy rock music, and are sensitive to American Indian issues, this is group to listen to! The other CD's I have, Space Age Indian and Tamiami Station are wonderful also!"
