Tumbledown House Modern Speakeasy, Saloon Jazz, Parlor Pop
San Francisco Bay Area songwriting deviants, Tumbledown House, have never been easy to describe, with clarinet and trumpet. Modern speakeasy, saloon jazz, parlor pop, and Tom Waits in a cocktail dress are some of the terms used, but none of these successfully convey the band’s incomparable ability to fuse vintage sounds and themes from yesteryear with the modern instrumentation, refreshingly original compositions, and raw energy that we expect from today’s performers. The group has become just as notorious for their raucous speakeasy parties as they are adored for their intimate seated events, which are oftentimes enriched by lush storytelling; their ability to charm audiences of all walks of life is making Tumbledown House a rising festival favorite. ORDER tickets in advance: Food truck outside. Parking is tricky. Might have to be a block away.

Home theater music and movie reproduction systems and music lovers - mostly middle-age men, in Sarasota and Bradenton areas - who would love music, sound, audio and home theaters. We have monthly social gatherings to review, argue and discuss all things music, components and systems.

Brief History

Jeff Cantor moved to Sarasota in 2004 from New York City. John Chait was President of the old Gulf Coast Audiophile Society, but that club disbanded. A few years ago, the Tampa Bay Listening Society became the Suncoast Audiophile Society on Meetup. In October 2009, after 4 years of searching for an audiophile society in the area, Cantor realized that if he didn't start one, there would be nothing in the Sarasota area.

Since then, many people contributed to the Sarasota Audiophile Society's success, especially the first five members: Alan Hendler, Laura and Bill Heath, plus Mike and Holly Gruenfeld! We now have over 80 members, with about 35 actively involved.

In November, 2015, Chait called a meeting to organize regular monthly meetings, a Board and move our Sarasota club to The Meetup web site facilitates notices, emails, regular monthly events, locations, members, directions, classified ads, discussions, budgets and dues for social clubs. Cantor, Chait Heath and A. Colin Flood are Board members. The Board meetings are now posted on the information pages:;
