Headquarters of…

Music

Timmy G. was born in Joliet, Illinois and is of indeterminate age. He drives a big, rumble-y old hotrod around the country and plays goofy songs in bars. He believes very strongly that toilet paper should be fed over the top of the roll. If you’d like him to come to your town and play, he’ll need a place to crash.

Primarily driven by the acoustic guitar, and shot through with Timmy G!’s blistering harmonica playing, Timmy G!’s songs range from childlike and silly to borderline pornographic. His comedic takes on love, sex, popular culture and Things That Are Generally Goofy have made him a barroom favorite from California to Chicago (thus far in his career Timmy G! has avoided the East Coast for reasons mainly related to disputed territorial boundaries).

Timmy G! also sings and plays harmonica with The Smoking Section.

Timmy G!’s “No Relation” is available for purchase through CD Baby and iTunes.
