The BoDeans rock band was formed in Waukesha, Wisconsin in 1983 by high school friends Kurt Neumann and Sam Llanas. Early on, their sound was influenced by "roots rock" and "heartland rock" but they soon moved more into the genre of alternative rock.

Llanas often explains that he got the name BoDeans from The Beverly Hillbillies character Jethro Bodine. For Kurt, BoDeans conured up the image of rock n' roll icons Bo Diddley and James Dean. In 1986, under the gudiance of record producer T-Bone Burnett, they recorded their debut album Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams. Their 1996 release Closer to Free became the theme song of the popular TV series, Party of Five and became the group's biggest pop hit.

After the sudden, painful-or-everybody-involved departure of Sam Llanas in August of 2011, the BoDeans went into a rebuilding year--touring ceaselessly, making videos, giving interviews and generally doing everything humanly possible to reassure their fan base that a BoDeans, without the vaunted Neumann/Llanas harmonies was still worth hearing. The five-member band is more popular than ever.

"[The BoDeans have] distinctive harmonies and combining of elecric and acoustic guitars. . . " David Hiltbrand, People Magazine
