The Disgruntled Sherpa’s Disgruntled Biography.
The Disgruntled Sherpa Project consists of five former members of the Philadelphia rock band, TaLLtrEEs. In 2002 Guitarists Dan Perry and Joe Boylan, Bassist Walt Mamaluy and drummer Mike Davis formed TaLLtrEEs along with singer Jason Jeffries. Working out of Buddha Zen records in Center City Philadelphia the band produced the CD Fallen. Before the CD was released in June of 2002 Davis quit the band. Jeffries’ cousin, Chris Garafalo, replaced him.
The band spent the summer and fall of 2002 playing in an around Philadelphia. Twice headlining Buddha Zen Studio’s Buddha Fest once at the Tritone on South Street, as well as twice playing the Rusty Nail, Ulana’s, the Fire and the Pirate’s Den. In the fall of 2002 the band started working on their second CD Double Fisted Misery. During recording guitarist Dan Perry quit the band. Guitarist George Wright and pianist Joe MacKale replaced Dan. The band spent late fall early winter recording as well as playing shows at The Pontiac Grille, The Pirate’s Den and an outdoor Halloween Festival in Elkton, Maryland during the height of the DC Sniper shooting spree.
On March 8, 2003 the band released Double Fisted Misery at the fourth Buddha Fest at the Tritone. With shows lined up in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and New York, bassist Walt Mamaluy, guitarists Joe Boylan and George Wright along with Pianist Joe MacKale quit the band directly after leaving the Tritone stage. Walt Mamaluy explained, “We were all making a lot of sacrifices and felt as if we were being exploited to promote Buddha Zen and not the band. Boylan says, “None of us was happy in that situation and we figured we’d rather walk away and do something we enjoyed instead of keeping the course.”
After taking the summer of 2003 off, Boylan, Perry, Mamaluy, Davis and MacKale got back together to form The Disgruntled Sherpa Project. “We’re basically the guys that wrote all the music and the lyrics for TaLLtrEEs so we’re pretty much the same band just we’re singing ourselves instead of getting a front man,” Boylan explained. “It was easier for us all to quit and then regroup with the people we wanted as opposed to kicking anyone out, which is not a nice thing to do. Plus, we can get rid of that stupid name and go with a silly one instead.” Deciding to stay away from the “sloppy grungy garage sound of TaLLtrEEs” the band worked more on country-influenced songs and focused more on song structure and melody. The CD is full of acoustic guitars, mandolins, banjos and twinkling piano and is heavily influenced by the country-based work of Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and Gram Parsons.
The band plans to start playing shows in the Philadelphia and Central Pennsylvania to promote the CD and is already working on new songs for a second Sherpa CD.
