The Tree Frogs, featuring Mike Chiello and Tom Lee, are an authentic classic rock duo who specialize in performing great, but not overplayed classic tunes from the Vietnam era (mostly mid '60s to mid '70s). This is the stuff we grew up on! Tom & Mike have both been playing and performing classic rock songs for over forty years. Since 2006, they have been performing together as The Tree Frogs.
The Tree Frogs are known for their tight harmonies and for playing authentic recreations of timeless songs and replicating the originals with just two guitars. We don't use any back-up (it's just the two of us and a bunch of guitars!) and we love playing some of the best songs from the Vietnam era! Songs that evoke the memories and emotion of that magical and tumultuous time.
Our playlist includes songs by The Beatles, Crosby Stills & Nash, Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, The Band, The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, The Byrds, The Lovin' Spoonful, The Turtles, The Mamas & The Papas, The Animals, The Who, America, CCR, Jackson Browne, Arlo Guthrie, Tommy James & The Shondells, Carole King, John Denver, The Monkees, Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, The Grass Roots, The Troggs, Stealers Wheel, Bread, Paul Revere & The Raiders...and the list goes on! Baby Boomers, this is the stuff you forgot to remember!
Tom & Mike also perform in a full-band extension of The Tree Frogs called The Electric Frogs! The Electric Frogs are:
Mike Chiello - Guitar & Vocals
Tom Lee - Guitar & Vocals
Jack Masucci - Bass & Vocals
George Wilson - Drums
