About The Two Man Gentlemen Band

Contemporary folk duo the Two Man Gentlemen Band began when banjo player Andy Bean and string bassist Fuller Condon started busking together in New York City's Central Park full-time. Their combination of classic American musical styles -- including hot jazz, folk, Americana, Tin Pan Alley, and vaudeville -- with witty lyrics about history, mathematics, and relationships became a hit, and they soon took their act from the street to the stage. The Two Man Gentlemen Band soon developed a reputation for fun and frenetic shows, with both Bean and Condon performing in character, dressing in suits and hats and handing out free kazoos to audience members. Despite a busy touring schedule, they still found time to release three albums -- The Two Man Gentlemen Band (2005), Great Calamities (2006), and Heavy Petting (2008) -- all on Serious Business Records. Their torrid concert and release calendar continued during the 2010s, beginning with 2010's Dos Amigos, Una Fiesta!, followed by Two at a Time two years later. In 2013, their California Feetwarmers album featured appearances from Andy Bean and Phil Alvin. Enthusiastic Attempts at Hot Swing & String Band Favorites was released in 2014. ~ Katherine Fulton
