KC Soundcheck: TJ & The Tattletales
The trio is bringing the timeless soundtrack to the holiday favorite "A Charlie Brown Christmas" to Kansas City this December.
This holiday season, the classic Vince Guaraldi jazz soundtrack to "A Charlie Brown Christmas" will be performed live, in its entirety, by the Kansas City trio TJ & The Tattletales.
The band features TJ Erhardt on piano, Chase McRoy on bass, and Adam Watson on drums. They formed The Tattletales specifically for the holiday show, Erhardt says.
"It's a nice thing to do," Erhardt says. "Never having played in a piano trio before as a piano player, it's something new for me."
After playing through "A Charlie Brown Christmas," The Tattletales plan to showcase a scandalous set of "X"-mas songs.
TJ & The Tattletales joined KCUR's Up To Date to discuss how the band came about, why they chose Vince Guaraldi, and to give a live preview of their holiday performance.
