The Tea Party was a Canadian rock band with blues, progressive rock, Indian and Middle Eastern influences dubbed "Moroccan roll" by the media. Active throughout the 1990s and half of the 2000s The Tea Party released eight albums on EMI Music Canada, selling 1.6 million records worldwide and achieving a #1 Canadian single "Heaven Coming down" in 1999.
The Tea Party toured Canada on twenty-one occasions and Australia on twelve, where they headlined a show in 2002 to an audience of 5,800 at the Hordern Pavillion, Sydney. In November 2002 The Tea Party toured Canada with symphony orchestras reinterpreting a decade's worth of shared songwriting. Their career together ended abruptly in 2005 due to creative differences.
The Tea Party was formed in 1990 by Jeff Martin, Stuart Chatwood and Jeff Burrows after a marathon jam session at the Cherry Beach Rehearsal Studios in Toronto. Each member had previously played together during their teenage years in a number of different bands.
