2016 UPDATE: SIDE PROJECTS FOR SALE!
What have The Gentlemen been up to? Good question! Not many TMGB-things have been happening, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy!
The Councilman has been galavanting around the USA and Europe plunking the bass with the inimitable LEGENDARY SHACK SHAKERS. (Upcoming tour dates and news about the Shack Shakers is here: www.legendaryshackshakers.com) Andy Bean’s been keeping busy making various bleeps, binks, and boinks for a few new upcoming cartoon series. (More on that later). And he also had the opportunity to sit-in for a few tunes on the latest CALIFORNIA FEETWARMERS album, playing steel guitar. And what’s this?! How convenient! You can purchase said album right here in the TMGB store!
ANDY BEAN WROTE A MUSICAL!!
As many of you know, our very own Andy Bean has spent much of the last three years writing music for the Emmy nominated cartoon series, Wander Over Yonder. The show’s big musical spectacular aired last month featuring 7 original songs written by Andy. It’s delightful. Have a listen, won’t you?

TMGB MUSIC ON THIS AMERICAN LIFE!
Our song, Pool Party, was featured on a recent broadcast of This American Life! Listen to the episode here. Thankfully, it followed a funny segment and not, you know, one of the stories that makes your cry or question your life choices. That would have been uncomfortable. To celebrate, we’re giving away POOL PARTY (the song, not the party) for FREE for a limited time. Download below!
We’re pleased to announce that The Gents wrote and performed the theme song for the upcoming Disney Channel animation series, WANDER OVER YONDER! Have a listen:
The show is absolutely dynamite and we couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it. Our very own Andy Bean is composing all the music for the series, so there’ll be lots more where that came from.
With the exception of a few concerts every now and then, we’ll be taking a little break from the road to focus on the show, start work on a new album, and stretch out our backs a bit after 6 straight years in the minivan. ‘Til we see you again in person, you can always keep track of all things TMGB here and on our Facebook page.
All the best,
