Baby Baby-
The fine southern gentlemen of BABY BABY have been performing since late 2009. Started by singer/guitarist/raconteur Fontez Brooks and drummer Grant Wallace, the band now features Colin “CowCow” Boddy and Hsiang-Ming “New Guy” Wen.

Straight out of Carrollton, GA. The band has graced the stages of Made In America, Riotfest and Afropunk, as well as losing all their money on condoms and beer during The Warped Tour.

Searching to define their music, the only description is “Fun Rock” – a mélange of Indie, English and Swedish Punk, Bayou Rock, Vaudeville and Carnival. If Tony Robbins put on a Hawaiian shirt and a pair of swimshorts, downed a bottle of bourbon, listened to nothing but Blink 182 and GG Allin for 24 hours and then decided to deliver a musical motivational speech, pick up your girlfriend and steal your cab this is what it would sound like.

Baby Baby

Baby Baby is from Atlanta.
“I am Fontez Brooks. I sing songs and play the guitar.”
“I am Colin Boddy. I like a good cocktail kit and yelling is fun.”
“I am Grant Wallace. I hit drums and have a thriving lawncare business.”
“I am Hsiang-Ming Wen. I slappa da bass and haven’t had a hair cut in years.”

“We play fun-rock. We’ve played it at Riotfest, Made In America, Afropunk Fest(s), Warped Tour and for Red Bull’s 30 Days In L.A. We’ve toured with Fishbone, Black Lips and some other bands worth mentioning but we won’t.”

Their new record is “Semifamous”.

Their managers say they are “a mélange of Indie, English and Swedish Punk, Bayou Rock, Vaudeville and Carnival”.  But what do they know? Sometimes upper management uses big words which we don’t understand.

Their booking agent says that they are the shit.

“We kinda believe him because he got kicked out of a show once for trying to make sure we were properly taken care of. Good Guy Gregg.”

Check out their shit here, or come see their show this Thursday, September 29, at The Syndicate Lounge at 7:00. It’s going to be the shit x4 because joining them are Creature Camp, Red Harp
