Tally Hall – Banana Man
TALLY HALL is a wonky rock band based in Ann Arbor, MI.
wonky /wong?kee/ adj. [slang] Specifically connotes a malfunction that produces behavior (or music) seen as unusual, humorous, or amusingly diverse. See funky, demented, bozotic, tri-harmonious, tally hall.
Since their formation in December 2002, Tally Hall has reached what the Michigan Daily calls “iconic status”? in Ann Arbor, playing to sold-out crowds of enthusiastic followers. Tally Hall first gained national attention when keyboardist Andrew Horowitz won the 2004 John Lennon Scholarship Competition, presented by Yoko Ono and BMI, for writing “Good Day.”? Since then, with the support of the Uber-popular www.albinoblacksheep.com, Tally Hall’s music and related videos have attracted an unprecedented amount of internet attention. The band recently completed their debut studio album, Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum, which will be released nationwide in November 2005 on the Quack!Music label.
