The musical collective TEB—known to Oregonians as the Travis Ehrenstrom Band— transcends boundaries while blending funky fusion-rock jams with the soulful essence of singer-songwriter Travis Ehrenstrom.
Songwriter Travis Ehrenstrom has been captivating audiences for many years with heartfelt solo actousic music. However, it's with TEB that the true alchemy unfolds; a collaboration of six exceptional musicians, each adding their unique flavor to the mix. The lineup includes Travis Ehrenstrom (vocals/guitar), Patrick Pearsall (bass/vocals), Conner Bennett (guitar), Patrick Ondrozeck (keys), Kyle Pickard (drums), and Gregg Morris (guitar/vocals).
TEB's sonic landscape defies easy categorization. The music blends unexpected turns with open-ended intentions, allowing the band to explore and create in the moment. The band emerged from the post-COVID shadows with a new album, “Hollinshead,” a 5-song collection showcasing the sound of the band.
A near decade of playing together has allowed TEB to produce a rich tapestry of live shows and memorable moments, as well as a dedication to the art of musical expression. What started as random practices and stands at local breweries has moved to multiple recordings and slots at festivals such as Sisters Folk Festival, 4 Peaks Music Festival, Cascade Equinox, Bend’s Fall Festival, Cruxapalooza, and Bend's Oktoberfest.
"Every time I play with those guys, there’s one of those moments where it’s just like, ‘Whoa! I can’t believe we just did that,’” says Ehrenstrom.
This sentiment encapsulates the essence of TEB's music—a journey marked by moments that can't be scripted but resonate deeply. Listen to the recordings, catch TEB live, and hear for yourself!
