All Houston natives, The Beans sprouted from a fortuitous friendship. Drummer Brendan Hall, who, after completing his college coursework in December 2010, called together mutual friends, Sam Griffin (vocals), Christian Galatoire (guitar), and Daniel Taylor (bass), for an informal jam session with the hopes of forming a sophisticated, crude rock ‘n roll band.   Hall’s “experiment” worked and resulted in the official beginnings of The Beans. Masterminding raw, gritty, and powerful rock, with influences from delta blues, 60’s jazz, and psychedelia, The Beans present vintage rhythm based music in a modern context, with qualities reminiscent of greats, like Wilco, Junior Kimbrough, Jimi Hendrix, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Charles Mingus, and Townes Van Zandt.
