Those who have followed BoDeans' remarkable 30-year musical career know that their blend of compelling songs and high energy performances have retained an unpretentious rock & roll loyal following like no other.

Best known for their catch single, "Close to Free," the band's accessible adult alternative sound has led to many a milestone, including a Rolling Stone Reader's Poll for Best New American Band in 1987, and support slots with U2, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, George Thorogood & The Destroyers, The Pretenders, David Bowie and numerous others. Appearances at Farm Aid, Summerfest, Auckland City Limits Music Festival and others followed, along with TV appearances on Saturday Night Live, Late Show with David Letterman, The Today Show, Imus, CNN and ESPN to name a few. BoDeans have a permanent installation at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland as part of their Midwest Artists exhibit.

After multiple chart-topping singles and TV placements, BoDeans have defined a generation that embraced songs like "Good Things," "You Don't Get Much," "Idaho," "If It Makes You," "Closer to Free," "Stay," and "All The World."

Few would expect them to still be going strong - so many years after Wisconsin's favorite muscial sons first formed, but they've proved as energetic and determined as they did on day one. Their music is featured throughout the new Netflix original series The Ranch, which features Sam Elliot, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson and Debra Winger. They have major festival dates confirmed for the summer and a new single coming out that is sure to be another chart-topper.

BoDeans now reside in a small group of bands that have managed to survive the ups and downs of the industry, remaining true to their sound and their style for 30 years, and show no signs of slowing down. While famous for their big hard rocking show, the band has decided to play a handful of select markets in listening rooms featuring a performance with much quieter, more intimate, stripped-down versions of classic BoDeans songs.
