Yacht Rock Vibes. That's perhaps the simplest way to describe sophisticated arrangements and harmonies that have come to define The BGP . Merging the classic tones of Mic Fleetwood and Michael McD with a modern digital aesthetic, The BGP brings to life a stage experience that is one part session musicianship, and one part child-like-joy. Says Greg Roth of Seattle Music Insider, "The truth is The BGP defies categorization. Oh sure you hear the influences but the boys have their own thing goin’ on and have for several years."
A brotherhood hailing from the ‘Fair town’ of Puyallup, WA, the band is lead by frontman Brandon Ghorley, and a regular cast of local musicians and featured artists. A loyal regional following has grown as a result of The BGP's willingness to play literally anywhere, from Seattle, to Puyallup, to Naches, to Boise, to Portland, and everywhere in between.
After successfully funding a Kickstarter campaign, the band released a 6-song EP in September of 2015, entitled "Fort Knox." The EP, produced with the help of Tacoma's DJ Phinisey is a follow up to "Love and Rent," which was released in 2010 and produced by Brian Fennell of the band Barcelona.
The band has opened for Andy Grammar and Allen Stone, and most recently played the mainstages of Neumos (Seattle) and the ChinookFest (Naches, WA). A new album is in the works for 2018.
