2 Bears

The Band:  2 Bears


What’s the story?:   Remember taping the radio’s Hot 7 at 7 so you could be the coolest kid in Grade 6? And how awesome Milli Vanilli were (lip-synching be damned!) The 2 Bears remember. And they have awoken from a 20 year hibernation in music to bring joyous house &  techno like Britney Spears, emo, American Idol, &  grunge never happened. Are we human, or are we dancer? Au contraire, rhythm is a dancer. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)


Sounds Like:   If the defunct C&C Music Factory was re-opened and run by a trade union of the Village People, Ricky Gervais dance moves http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qurTK_0re3Y, and Fatboy Slim. Guaranteed to be the soundtrack to your next  cooking session, PantsoffDanceoff, or record setting trail run.

The gateway song:   “Work”  

Other songs:     

“Time In Mind”

“Warm and Easy”

“Bear Hug”
