Twenty Something White Guys

Twenty Something White Guys

BandFolkAcoustic

"The last thing the world needs right now is another band of twenty-something white guys..." If the name does not convey a sense of modesty and humility, then hopefully the music does. Never pretentious and always tight, these guys might describe themselves as acoustic-folk-funk-core.

Biography

It's a classic boy meets drummer, boy loses drummer, boy meets bass player, boy reunites with drummer fairy tale.

Pete met Jeff after a show he did in college. Jeff wanted to play with Pete. Pete listened to Jeff. Pete was impressed. They played together. Life was good. Then Pete moved away. Jeff was sad. Pete met Jay after a show in a new town. Pete asked Jay to play with him. Pete called Jeff to come and play with the both of them. Jeff said yes.

The following musical connection that took place is something that most musicians can only dream about.

Twenty Something White Guys’ music has been shown to induce listeners to begin spontaneously dancing atop any available surface; these guys provide enough soul to leave spiritual residue on your walls for several days afterward.
