Good Guys

BandRockAvant-garde

We are a Lounge-Metal act that combine the best elements of jazz and samba with heavy rock, creating a back and forth, salty-sweet power-pop sensation. Our recordings are solid, and our live performances are never dull...

Biography

Good Guys were formed in New Orleans around the year 2004, by Tom Mclaughlin (Guitar) and Jeremy Johnson (voice antics)...

Since the initial forming of the band, Good Guys have inducted a drummer (Kyle Sharamitaro), a bass player (Greg Smith), and a keyboard/trumpet player (Greg Beaman).

Their sound can be described as Lounge-Core, combining the softest elements of jazz and lounge with the clamoring of thick rock and metal.

Good Guys have recorded 2 EPs (the last of which was mixed and mastered by Stewart Cararas for 7th Level Productions. [with production credits such as Pleasure Club, Drums & Tuba, Brian Wilson, and Juvenile])

Good Guys just finished their first full length album, "The Social Engagement" with Mike Napolitano (Blind Melon, Galactic, Twilight Singers) to produce what appears to be the most interesting and dynamic full length release, like, ever. Expect it out right in time for summer [sheen]. (JUNE 14th!)

The new album also features guest musicians,

Mike Dillon (Polyphonic Spree, Ani DiFranco) on Timpani
and Skerik (Claypool's Frog Brigade, Critter's Buggin') on Saxophone

The goal for the band at this point is to play as much as possible around New Orleans and beyond (look out for an East Coast/midwest/Canada tour later this year!), and further the creative focus on recording and performance. Good Guys are a professional act packed with energy and the knack for a different sounding kind of 'rock and roll'. They create music that is interesting to listen to as well as watch in live performances.

They are gentle and will help you find new muscles you never knew existed if you trust them. And they are thorough. Very thorough.

Booking with Good Guys is booking with confidence.
