Long known as one of the best live acts in the business, The BoDeans continue to tour year round and continue to deliver amazing, high-energy performances.
Chart topping songs like “Fadeaway”, “Only Love”, and “Dreams” won them Rolling Stone‘s readers poll for Best New American Band in 1987, and they were part of a small contingent of bands that inspired a new radio format known as Adult Alternative Album Rock. Their reputation for delivering a dynamic live show garnered support slots with U2/”Joshua Tree” Tour, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Tom Petty, George Thorogood, The Pretenders, David Bowie, and appearances at Farm Aid, Summerfest, and ACL, among others. They’ve been featured on SNL, Letterman, Today, Imus, CNN, ESPN, and many more.
In the nearly 30 years that followed, the band released several albums which embody multiple more songs played heavily at radio, in TV shows, and movies, and defined a sound that a generation embraced–songs like “Good Things”, “You Don’t Get Much”, “Idaho”, “If It Makes You”, “Closer to Free”, “Stay”, “American”, and “All the World”, which was recently featured on CMT.
