Feeling a bit camera shy


The members of Bare Citizens are formally a band called Naked Groove that performed in the mid-west jam-band scene from 2000 to 2005. The group has shared the stage with Mike Gordon, Col. Bruce Hampton and the Code Talkers. Bare Citizens' sound could be compared to a combination of Ben Folds, Medeski Martin and Wood, Phish, Aquarium Rescue Unit, and Galactic. Each member of the band is different in musical background and style, which contributes to their original sound. Live shows are made up of original compositions, covers, and improvised performances that include and sometimes merge funk, jazz, country, rock, and Caribbean styles.
