The Players

Matt NattiThe Tree House Charlatans represent a musical ensemble loosely based around a didgeridoo and a tree house.  The original Tree House Charlatan is Matt Natti- musician (didgeridoodler, banjo, hand drums etc), arborist, artist and outdoor enthusiast.  The "s" in Charlatan(s) represents all the cool cats who make the music really happen. What started with a didge, a stand-up and a hand drum has ebbed and flowed (depending on the weather, the day of the week, the lunar cycle and whether the groundhog sees his shadow) to include mandolin, more percussion than you can shake a termite hollowed stick at, flutes, violins, random vocals, trumpets, guitars, banjos, harmonicas, even a melodica and a kalimba. The music ranges from eclectic, world/ jazz to sing along folk/ rock, bluegrass gone wild and trance based waves of sound to soothe the savage beast.   There is a long list of characters who have brought along their own ideas, flare and passion to various shows, living room jams and (of course) the Tree House Summer Sessions including folks like-  Eli Natti, Jim Corcoran, Alex MacLeod, Scott Noring, Andy Gerard, Dan McQueen, Pete Wostral, Tom Eaton, Olivia Gale, Josh Hurd, Nathan Cohen, Joe Cardoza and James Forrest.

Clicking on linked names will bring you to a short bio about that person, with any links to other endeavors they might be a part of, photos of them and any comments they have about the Tree House Charlatans...

KtK8 is a public music teacher and is horribly under-appreciated!
Pete Wostral is stoopid awesome on a guitar, and is really nice too!
Jesse Ciamatro Qwill
Aaron Katz The Dejas
Hal Hirshon is quirky, clever, charismatic and crazy cool keyboardist.  He doesn't have a lot of web presence but his music is at http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/HalHirshon and his "secret squirrel/ stage name" is WitchDoktor.
Tom Eaton  
Olivia Gale Meridian
Josh Hurd  
Nathan Cohen What Time Is It, Mr. Fox
Joe Cardoza  
James Forrest is a great musician and a great guy.   Melding guitar, keyboard, melodica and laptop magic, he has created an amazing variety of music though out his years, including work with Machine 475 and a number of solo projects.  For a sample of some of his work, check:

Other Assorted Charlatans
Janet Natti is the Hostess with the Mostess.  She not only put up with all of the band shenanigans but entertains all the non-musician types that show up for shows and jams.  She also gets a fairly big vote on whether we do certain songs.  Oh, and she manages to put up with Matt Natti, which elevates her to a saint!
Jess and Gavin Natti provide major food/ beer support at tree house sessions and generally increase the energy and love of the whole event.  Gavin is sure to be taking over for Jim and MNatti any day and for now, does a great job excersising Booger!  Keith Natti, Jess's fella is often too busy working at his surf company twinlightssurf.com but he does pop in for a beer now and again.
