The Vanilla Beans

A band comprised of four close friends. Songs reside within a pop universe. Rock'n electro folky tunes. Nothing too incredible just fun fun fun.Hopefully.

Songs inspired intially after a heap of listening to the music of Daniel Johnston. Music intended to be silly/fun/weird. Started as a single person side project. Songs evolved to a more serious sound complimented by acoustic drum loops and less falsetto. The original band roster evolved to include David Gilley(drums), Andrew Garces(guitar-vox) and Corey Goodman(synth-vox). After some intial shows, Jordan Luster(keys-vox) and Dustin Walls(bass) joined the band. A brief span of harmonious rocking followed. Dustin and David both left the band and were replaced by Daniel Clark(drums) and Christopher Eilers(bass). It was raucous and weird. Mid 2008 The Group again experienced another reorganization. Members Corey Goodman and Jordan Luster left the performing roster and were replaced respectively by Chris Eilers(now on guitar-vox) and Ani Kramer(on synth) and Todd Anderson (on Guitar). The group now continues to perform and utilizes backing tracks for bass, drums, and some synth parts.
