Biography

Timing and fate have been key in forming Band With No Name.

While performing acoustically in 2005, front man, Jeff Gutt, met guitarist, Gary Pittel at a local night club. Inspired by Jeff’s unique vocals, Gary approached him with the idea of working together. Although not interested in starting a new project at the time, Jeff changed his mind after hearing his song, “Loser”, put to an arrangement composed by Gary that can only be described as brilliant.

Recognizing each other’s undeniable talent, the two musicians knew they had stumbled onto something worth pursuing and decided to collaborate. It wasn’t long before Jeff and Gary were recording tracks in Gary’s studio laying the groundwork for their future hits. However, the time eventually came for Jeff to return to LA and his now former band, Dry Cell, putting their project on hold.

When Jeff permanently returned to Detroit he and Gary picked up where they left off, hitting the studio full force. Songs such as “Animal Like” and “Criminal” were turned out within days. With the foundation now laid, Jeff and Gary began seeking out the right musicians to form the remainder of the band. Bassist Ben Lula, Drummer Aaron Hutchinson, and Keyboardist Justin “Antic” Hackman were chosen and Band With No Name (BWNN) was born.

To date, Band With No Name has shared the stage with such acts as Evans Blue, Kittie, Taproot, Critical Bill, HUSH, and Uncle Kracker at venues across metro Detroit including Crofoot Ballroom, Emerald Ballroom, and the legendary Machine Shop. They can be heard on Flint’s Banana 101.5 and Detroit’s 89X, as well as stations in Philadelphia, Chicago, and Cincinnati. In 2007, BWNN beat out numerous other local bands to win 89X’s “I’m With The Band” contest; officially establishing their presence in the Detroit rock scene.

With their new album, “Humanity” about to be released, BWNN is ready to start the next chapter. Songs like “Letter” and the wildly popluar track “I’m Your Enemy” deliver the hard hitting riffs, gritty vocals, and distinctive melodies that BWNN fans have come to know, love, and crave.
