The best kept secret in music

"Bawdy, Downhome Music!"

The two gents make some riotous, bawdy, down home music on guitar, banjo, bass fiddle and of course, kazoos. It would be easy to get lost in the sheer entertainment of their irreverent tunes lauding the joys of moonshine, because the two gents are nothing if not fun. But look past all that to their pitch perfect harmonies, their interesting chord choices and above all, their wry and demented lyrics. -

"Something Special!"

The Two Man Gentlemen Band has put something special together on their self titled release. The album, which is out now on Serious Business Records, strikes of everything from Vaudeville to Woody Guthrie. A mixture of clever lyrics and toe tapping melodies that leaves one feeling the need for more. They bring together so many different influences and sounds on this record that’s it just simply a work of art." -

"Mighty Raucous!"

The Two Man Gentlemen Band, whose members dress like turn of the century dandies, does Old-Timey Country Folk that can get mighty raucous! - Time Out New York

"The Liquored Up Side of Life"

These two hard-working young men are harkening back to the old-time heyday of Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers and Fiddlin' John Carson with their irreverent musical tales of the liquored-up side of life. I have never met any one person--let alone two fellahs--who can play the kazoo as well as these two boys after downing an ass pocket full of whiskey. - Matt Winters, WKCR-FM, New York

"At the Twang Station!"

These two guys look like they should be entertaining tourists on Main Street, USA, rather than in Times Square, NYC. But somehow Andy Bean and Fuller Condon pull off their old-time country schtick - with banjo, bass, and dueling kazoos. Three out of Three Stars! - The New York Post - Subway Idol

Feeling a bit camera shy


With toe-tapping rhythms, uproarious lyrics, impeccably tailored outfits, and perfectly charming manners; The Two Man Gentlemen Band is nothing if not fun! Whether they're performing in a city park, on a subway platform, in a rowdy tavern, or a festival stage, the unstoppable duo of Andy Bean and Fuller Condon always gets the audience smiling.

The Gentlemen combine early-jazz, old-timey, and circus-country styles to create a joyous two-man sound that is all their own. It is an approach they honed during three years of regular busking in New York City’s Central Park. Asked to describe themselves, The Gentlemen declare, “We sound exactly how two young men in old-fashioned suits, playing banjo, kazoos, and a bass fiddle ought to sound... fun!”

Though their style may be anachronistic, the band is not content playing songs from a bygone era. Instead, The Gentlemen’s repertoire consists mainly of original compositions. Their quirky tunes about such varied topics as badminton, mathematics, zeppelin crashes, and corn liquor display the type of wry wit and erudition one would expect from a gentleman. Combine this with the band’s dynamic stage show (which always features dozens of free kazoos for the audience!) and you have yourself a good old fashioned musical spectacle!

Off the stage, these two young men remain perfectly well mannered. This gentlemen business is no act! They tip their hats for ladies, say Sir and Ma’am, and even provide “Lessons in Etiquette” on the band’s website. Seldom are they seen without hats, neck-ties, and cheerful expressions. The Two Man Gentlemen Band looks forward to meeting you!
