My So-Called Band parties begin with a favorite 90’s pastime: watching a little TV with a few (hundred, maybe thousand) F•R•I•E•N•D•S. A 10-minute video collage of pre-millenium pop culture (TV, movies, commercials, etc.) reminds you of a time when you knew all of the words to “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” because, trust us, you still do. For the next two-and-a-half hours, This Is How We Do It:

Hip-hop boldly reinvented itself - nothing will ever top Biggie, Tupac or the magical combo of Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog. En Vogue, R. Kelly & Aaliyah took mainstream R&B far beyond anything we’d heard before. From Ace of Base to Britney and Mariah, the 90’s wrote the pop perfection blueprint that is still being used today. These were the years of alternative rock radio’s time in the sun - Green Day, The Cranberries & Third Eye Blind ruled the airwaves, while Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails & Red Hot Chili Peppers raged against the machine.

Can you tell we love this music? We do. We’re not a “cover band.” An all-star roster of Nashville-based studio & touring professionals, we’re dedicated to performing these songs exactly the way they sound on your mix CDs. You should think of My So-Called Band as “The Dream Team.”

Our Starting Five play/have played for such acts as Ben Folds, The Pink Spiders, Tristen, The Privates, Lifeboy, De Novo Dahl, Feeble Weiner, Hotpipes & many, many others, as well as working with producers Ric Ocasek, Jerry Harrison, Roger Moutenot, Dave Fridmann, Matt Mahaffey, etc.

Rotating in and out of the game, previous and current special guest performers have worked with Wanda Jackson, Deer Tick, The Nobility, Johnny Corndawg (Johnny Fritz), Caitlin Rose, Wild Cub, etc.
