Biography

In the blue collar town of Tacoma, Washington, a patchwork of friendships forged in adolescence somehow managed to weather the storms of life. What resulted is THE BGP. Describing themselves as a ‘modern Hall & Oates,’ THE BGP merges session musicianship with a childlike joy for making music. The upshot is a soulful dance party that recalls a simpler time and place.

Though the band is officially a trio (Brandon Ghorley, Dustin Blatnik, and Josh Demorow), THE BGP regularly employs a supporting cast of musicians from around the country. After a performance at the Treefort Musicfest in March of 2014, KSUB Radio (Seattle University) wrote, ” filled the shop with earnest lyrics and dance-worthy melodies.” The music blog 50thirdand3rd commented, “These talented guys had the crowd entranced and entertained.”

Previously, THE BGP has shared the stage with Allen Stone, Andy Grammer, Fitz and the Tantrums, Barcelona, Bad Rabbits, David Choi, Aijia, and Clara C, (as well as a brief run-in with reality tv). The band has one full length album called “Love and Rent,” which was released in 2010 and produced by Brian Fennell of the band Barcelona.

In June of 2014, THE BGP successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign to make a new EP. They have stated that their goal is to release new music by spring 2015.
