Biography

Tally Hall is a rock band formed in 2002 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. Famed for their unique, quirky sound and distinct uniform of colored ties, white shirts, and black pants, Tally Hall rapidly became a fixture of the local music scene, selling out shows at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor and picking up a cult following around the country through their inventive music videos and charismatic stage presence. Their use of social media helped them gain a following early on as well, with their video for “Banana Man” being featured on albinoblacksheep.com in 2004 and their Myspace page quickly racking up views and listens.

Tally Hall consists of Rob Cantor (yellow tie, vocals & guitar), Joe Hawley (red tie, vocals & guitar), Zubin Sedghi (blue tie, vocals & bass), Andrew Horowitz (green tie, vocals & keyboards), and Ross Federman (gray tie, drums). Additionally, Casey Shea toured with the band in 2010 in place of Joe, wearing a black tie, and Bora Karaca, a close friend of the band widely considered the “sixth Tally” finally donned an orange tie and joined the band onstage for their summer 2011 tour.

The band released their debut album “Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum” in 2005 under the local Quack! Media label to great critical acclaim, before signing to Atlantic Records and re-recording the album in New York City with producer Chris Shaw for a 2008 re-release.
A multi-talented group with a passion for comedy and film as well as catchy tunes, Tally Hall created their very own Internet Show, which aired on their website in ten installments beginning in 2008.

    I'm still insanely in love with Good & Evil and will go as far to say as it's better than MMMM. I agree totally with your second comment Satertek. 2005's Mechanical Museum was absolutely stellar and should have never been touched.

    Also see they retouched MMM in 2008. Not a fan, but probably just because they just sound different.

    Woah they finally released another album. Not in love with every song like I was with MMM, but Never Meant to Know, &, You & Me, A Lady, The Trap and Turn The Lights Off are top notch.

    New album is what it was always going to be - a more subtle effort that drops the diversity/gimmicks for a more stable indie album. Happens to a lot of bands like that. That's not to say it's not a great album, maybe even a better one than the first.

    New album is great. It's so cohesive and clever. It might lack to silliness of some of the songs from the first album, but it makes up for that with depth and more complicated melodies. Love both albums for different reasons.
