About the BoDeans
Getting their start more than 20 years ago in Waukesha, Wis., the BoDeans' first album in 1986 propelled them into the national spotlight. Rolling Stone named them "Best New Band," and they went on tour with U2. After releasing a few albums, the BoDeans released their album Go Slow Down in 1993. The album yielded the popular Party of Five theme song, "Closer to Free," which made it into Billboard's top 10. The band released their newest album, Still, in 2008.
