Haiku Contest! Winner gets a Free T-Shirt!

Dear Friends,
To celebrate the opening of The Two Man Gentlemen Band Store (your source for Gentlemanly music, apparel, and eventually much much more), we announce the first ever Two Man Gentlemen Band Haiku Contest.  To enter, compose a Haiku on a topic that in some way, no matter how vaguely, relates to The Two Man Gentlemen Band.  Post it in the comments section below.  We’ll pick a winner next week and send him or her a lovely new TMGB T-shirt.  Deadline for entries is Mon, Mar 8.

Here are a few, to get you in the mood.

Look! The Councilman
Can bass-fiddle and sip booze
With only two hands!


On Friday let’s play
For a dozen old-timers.
A music career!

In the mood?  Splendid!  Good luck!

Yours very truly,
Andy Bean
The Two Man Gentlemen Band

    Just to see them leave.

    It’s easy to watch

    Kazoo is my friend
    When I blow on him real hard
    He makes funny noise.

    Can a booking be bought with Beer?
    Alas I am broke;
    you cost too damn much!


    Two fine handsome Gents
    Zoop Zoop on a logo Kazoo;
    Commence Merriment!


    The Gents were better
    than the opening act.
    Spilt my $7 beer clapping.

  12. alisa says:

    Innocent child looks dismally
    at dinner plate,
    “No dipping sauce?”

  13. Alex says:

    The Councilman’s stache
    Dripping from a foamy beer
    The show begins soon

    The Gentlemen’s wares
    Look fine upon the table;
    Money’s gone for beer

    The Drip Dryin’ dance
    Leaves me sweaty afterwards.
    Oh, the irony!

  14. Jennifer says:

    Making of Two Man music,
    Councilman and Bean,
    One-of-a-kind happening.
