about

Beebe Gallini return with hometown hero Cindy Lawson for some sugary sweet, naughty & nice Twin/Cities infused garage pop with their brand new digital Holiday EP release. "You Ain't Getting Nothin" is a garage rock banger and "What Christmas Means To Me" is a throwback, girl group sound, midwest soul, Wall of Sound with co-lead sugary sweet call and response vocals from Miss Georgia Peach & Cindy Lawson.

"By transposing the arrangement from an ersatz Setzer swing and taking it into the realms of garage rock, Bebee Gallini’s recording actually sounds more like the old Goo Goo Dolls than the Dolls’ own cut. The driving riff grabs a hold in an instant; Peach’s sneering vocal adds more of a bite and the band tear through the three minute belter with ease. On the b-side, the band hammer through the classic ‘What Christmas Means To Me’ with a genuine gusto. In taking the soul core and injecting it with a little slice of garage rock, Beebe Gallini give the melody a kick, and atop the chunky guitars, Peach stretches her retro voice with ease." - Real Gone

"LOVE them both... Just have to decide which one gets played first!"
- Kristen Eck, Bumblebee Brunch

"Woohoo!! You know how much I love Beebe Gallini!"
- Scott Hudson, The Ledge

"Rum Bar’s Beebe Gallini has gifted us two Christmas songs. What we like about these are that they are garage sounding first and Christmassy second. We love Christmas but the music part comes first. “You Ain’t Getting Nothin” sounds like it’s right off a Nuggets collection." - Boston Groupie News

"In addition to being one of the best garage rock bands going, Beebe Gallini is well-known for its ability to cover the hell out of a song. So of course you could expect this band to turn out a first-rate Christmas single! Teaming up with local legend Cindy Lawson, St. Paul's finest rock and roll outfit has gifted us with a double shot of holiday goodness on Rum Bar Records. Listening to the garage ripper "You Ain't Getting Nothin", you would never in a million years guess that this was a Goo Goo Dolls song. Miss Georgia Peach takes full ownership of the song with her usual powerhouse vocal, and simply put this tune freaking rocks! You would swear it was written decades ago! On the virtual flipside, the band is right in its element with a truly excellent rendition of the Stevie Wonder classic "What Christmas Means To Me" (featuring MGP and Lawson on co-lead vocals). The girl group and Motown vibes are strong and undeniable. Given my reluctance to overshare Christmas music this time of the year, I've adopted a standard where I'll only review holiday releases that are simply too good to ignore. This one sure falls into that category. Who am I kidding? Beebe Gallini could cover the Dallas Cowboys fight song, and I'd still be writing a rave review. This band never disappoints!" - Lord Rutledge, Faster And Louder
