Beta Male brings a touch of class to Let’s Do Lunch with Oreo Jones!:
So far Let’s Do Lunch has made chili, grilled cheese, and a Bunch of Old Ladies, but in this episode, Oreo’s switching gears and having a tea party with the band Beta Male. That’s right, one-man concept-band turned new wave sex-rock hula-hoop band Beta Male classes up the set of Let’s Do Lunch with some Earl Grey tea and cucumber sandwiches on pumpernickel bread. The group even hosts a guest of honor, Teddy Ruxpin. We’re going to go ahead and say it: you’ve never truly partied until you attended a Beta Male tea party.
Beta Male started out as the introspective solo project of David Hazel in 2005. With a lot of hoopla and hula hooping, David began conspiring with performance artists Allison Hazel and Jessica Hack on Beta Male’s now sexy live performance. As their artistic relationship blossomed, Allison and Jessica became integral members of the group, respectively playing bass guitar and keys. With the addition of guitarist TJ Briggs, Beta Male took on the appearance of a tradition four piece, but in all honesty, they were so much more. Between their adventurous production, fearless lyrics, and eerily erotic live performance, Beta Male proves to be a provocative exploration of emotion rendered in sound and light.

Oreo Jones drops “Guiding Light” ft. Jookabox as the lead single from his upcoming indie rock collaboration EP in connection with VH1’s Save the Music:
What do you get when you combine one of the hottest up-and-coming hip-hop emcees with a powerhouse indie rock band? In a word, a jam! The new single “Guiding Light” is a feel good song that seamlessly blends the clever word play of Oreo Jones with the psychedelic vibes of Jookabox. From the onset of Jookabox’s infectious instrumental, the listener is compelled to nod their head, so by the time Oreo begins his first verse, they’re ready to follow wherever his rhymes may lead. “Guiding Light” is the lead single from Oreo’s upcoming Oreo Jones and Friends EP.
With the holidays upon us, it only feels right to give back to the community.

The EP will be released on January 13th for free, with listeners being encouraged to donate whatever possible to Save the Music.
