Here’s a song from my forthcoming album called “Garry”. It is another ballad (I’m becoming the king of the ballads somehow) dedicated to Garry Shider. hopefully he’s the last funkateer that I write a ballad for—his influence on me was immeasurable and hopefully this song does his memory and legacy some justice. Brother’s Keeper featuring Glenn McClelland on keyboards are the backing band—best band in the world. Enjoy! Filmed at Taos Mesa Brewery in Taos, New Mexico in July of 2014.Read More
I spent pretty much the whole month of August doing gigs in Colorado, New Mexico, the Midwest, the East Coast, etc. With a few different lineups as well—Brothers Keeper w/Glenn McClelland were the backing band in Colorado and NM and the tour was devastatingly tasty. Completely different setlists than the east coast gigs with the DWG, a lot more Ween tunes in Colorado and I am the primary lead singer, like I sing every song except 2, and I’m working on my mic skills in the hopes that eventually I’ll be the full-time singer. I used to sing a lot better, like when I was 13 years old, then puberty kicked in and now I sorta just grunt and howl like a wounded animal. People don’t seem to mind so much...Read More
Well, we are off again, this time to the North. We play Hamden, CT tomorrow at the Ballroom at the Outer Space, followed by Friday and Saturday at the Wellfleet Beachcomber, which might be the coolest beach bar on the planet. Here are some pics from last week—-make a road trip this weekend, take a long weekend off from work and let us melt your faces. If you don’t think it’s the best rock show of the year, our Bassist Dave Dreiwitz will personally refund your money. He told me to say that.
More cool video from Big Flats, NY.
A fan shot this video with a cell phone and I added the soundboard audio to it. This song was totally a group effort, I wrote and recorded the muisc while Gabe sat there and said “you should call it Nightcrawler. Later that night my buddy Dylan came over and he has a way with words and he wrote the lyrics in like 10 minutes, the next night Guy sang the lead vocal. Sexy serpentine grooveRead More

More photos from Beta Klein…..We just played 4 shows in a row starting at John and Peter’s in New Hope, PA, then the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, followed by 2 more shows opening for Primus in Big Flats, NY and Asbury Park, NJ. All four gigs were killer, which is a rarity, you’re bound to have one clunker but we didn’t. My favorite gig was Big Flats–I’ve attached some fan shot video from the gig to which I added the soundboard mix. Our sound was done by my good friend Jamie Landry, who mixed monitors for Ween for many years. Obviously his real calling is Front of House sound, at which is unrivaled. The band is getting better with every gig, rehearsal, and the future has never looked brighter. We are having a blast...Read More
