The Two Man Gentlemen Band - Heavy Petting Review

by J Simpson

.
What would you call a band consisting of a banjo, a string base, a couple of kazoos, and two dapperly dressed chaps churning out a sound from a time mostly forgotten? Why that would have to be Long Island City's own duo The Two Man Gentlemen Band.

The gentleman on banjo, lead vocals and lead kazoo would be Mr. Andy Bean. The gentleman on string base, vocals and tenor kazoo would be Mr. Fuller Condon also known as The Councilman. The pair have just released a 12 track CD titled Heavy Petting on February 12th through their label Serious Business Records.

Heavy Petting is a music you'd expect to hear from a vaudeville act of the late 1800's or a band you'd hear at a state fair from that same era. When is the last time you've heard songs that the solos were played out on kazoo? Well you'll hear them in this disc as both Bean and Condon are master kazzooists and they pull these tunes off with a fun seamless romp of simple melodies and comedic lyrics. If you have any interest in vaudeville novelty type music at all this disc is a fun enjoyable listen with a friendly sound that can only lead to a toe tappin good time.
