The BoDeans Background

The BoDeans was formed in 1984 by longtime friends, Sammy Llanas and Kurt Neumann, while they were in high school. They immediately gravitated toward each other because of their similar taste in music, and decided to create a band so that they could blend their favorite genres together: Midwestern roots rock, adult contemporary rock, and alternative rock. After high school, Llanas left for college, but Neumann soon persuaded him to drop out and pursue music with him full time. Although neither of them had much musical experience, they decided to give it a go and started playing under the name BoDeans in 1980.

Beginning in 1983, the BoDeans started playing gigs in Milwaukee, and soon drummer Guy Hoffman joined, turning the duo into a trio. As a trio, the BoDeans became so popular in Milwaukee that they decided to swell their ranks even further and added bassist Bob Griffin to the band. In 1985, the band signed a recording contract with Slash/Warner Records, a deal which helped them launch their commercially successful career that lasted for decades after. In 1987, Rolling Stone magazine named them the Best New American Band, and started seeing their singles on US Mainstream Rock charts. Because of their rising popularity, artist like Jerry Harrison from Talking Heads, Peter Gabriel, and U2 asked to either collaborate or tour with the BoDeans, making them an extremely sought after band in music. Their unique sound and fun live performances helped them garner a massive fan base throughout the country.

Over the years, the BoDeans' style has fluctuated between heartland rock, roots rock, alternative rock, and mainstream rock, but one thing always remains consistent: the BoDeans produce great music. So take advantage of your opportunity to see this incredible band perform live this year by grabbing your tickets on StubHub as soon as possible!

Over the fun-filled and commercially successful career of the BoDeans', the band has released 11 studio albums, two compilation albums, three live albums, and ten singles. Both critics and fans have lauded them for their catchy and unique tunes, such as their most popular hits, "Closer to Free", "Feed the Fire", "Black, White, and Blood Red", "You Don't Get Much", "Dreams", and "Only Love".

This heartland rock group definitely knows how to crank out awesome hits, and now you can see them perform live if you act fast and grab your tickets on StubHub!


Sam Llanas said that he thought of "BoDeans" for a band name because of the Beverly Hillbillies character, Jethro Bodine, which he thought fit well with the band's rockabilly vibe.
