Gramma's Boyfriend is the new side project of the members of many Minneapolis bands including Jeremy Ylvisaker (Andrew Bird, Alpha Consumer, Guitar Party), Jacob Hanson (Halloween, Alaska, Guitar Party, Minneapolis Dub Ensemble), Haley Bonar, Luke Anderson (Rogue Valley, Alpha Centauri), and Mike Lewis (Happy Apple, Fat Kid Wednesdays, Andrew Bird, Gayngs). Sometimes they all play together, sometimes its whoever shows up. The main group consists of singer/keyboardist Haley Bonar, keyboard/guitar player Jeremy Ylvisaker, and drummer Luke Anderson.
Either way, it's a new kind of 80's throw back pop with an experimental vibe, mostly due to the fact that they don't really know the songs but just kind of make em' up on the spot and have a damn good time doing it. One guy said they were 'no wave', which kind of makes sense.
