This is my introduction to Minus The Bear - fantastic musicianship, musical variety and fun. Daryl (and his House) should be declared a National Treasure.

I loved their song "My Time" since it came out, but I had never gotten a chance to explore the rest of their music. I'm so glad this was taped!!! I'm definitely a fan now.

Interesting. It grows on you. Different and not sure why but it works melodically despite the timing and the avant garde phrasing. Can't be asleep at the wheel which means sophisticated skill. Refreshing and totally got my respect. Daryl...again...you and your awesome band (the drummer kills it)just keep proving over and over again what pros you are. Thanks again for providing this fantastic experience with you and some goooooood music. Minus the Bear....Screw BJ...you don't need'im

Minus The Bear
Since forming in Seattle back in 2001, Minus the Bear have released five albums and four EPs. Aside from Snider and Rose, the fivesome includes guitarist Dave Knudson, bassist Cory Murchy and drummer Erin Tate. Their sound has been described as “guitar acrobatics and electronics with sophisticated time signature compositions and infectious melodies.”

Their Dangerbird debut, Omni, debuted in the Billboard Top 50 and over the last 12 years, the band has played countless sold-out venues throughout the world, including North America, Europe, U.K., Japan and Australia, in addition to high-profile U.S. festival like Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza and Sasquatch!. It is a testament to the band’s DIY beginnings, impressive relationship with their fans and inventive music that they remain a beloved group with an unyielding fan base that continues to grow with each album. The group’s Snider tells Daryl they got their name from a friend, who described a date as “like BJ and the Bear… minus the bear.”
