Welcome Our Latest Advertiser: Lost in the Bamboo!
The B-Town Blog proudly plugs in its amp, cranks the volume up to 9.6 (we broke it trying to recreate a scene from “This is Spinal Tap“) and presents our latest Advertiser(s): Lost in the Bamboo and The Beat Merchants!
That’s two, two…two bands for the price of one!
Lost in the Bamboo is an original alternative/Americana band writing and performing songs in the vein of Weezer, The Gin Blossoms, and Deathcab for Cutie.
Started in 2007 by the husband/wife team of Ted and Jessica Walker, LIB has steadily garnered a loyal following of fans hooked on their infectious grooves. Lead by vocalist Gary Mullin, who is also an accomplished songwriter and performer, LIB is well known for their exciting live shows that typically include audience participation and humor.
The band is rounded out by the incredible musicianship of lead guitarist Kelly Crabtree and John Arvizu, who played together in the band Sugar Water prior to joining LIB.
Gary, Ted, and Jessica also happen to have another working band with a growing following â€“ The Beat Merchants, formerly known as Gray Sky Falling, is a cover dance band playing hits from the 60â€™s to today. The Beat Merchants also include guitar virtuoso Michael Nakagawa.
So if youâ€™re a club or a group needing live music, they have you covered whether you want catchy originals, or to dance to your favorite hits from your iPod.

And on a personal note, we here at the B-Town Blog would love to give a serious shout-out to LIB‘s founder, Ted Walker, without whose help we never woulda had our first-ever B-Town BlogstockAPalooza show way back in early September.
Speaking of which, here’s a video of Lost in the Bamboo playing at said event:
