Puddin Taine started jamming it’s way into the hearts of many from the rooftop of Cool Beans – Bar and Grill in Denton, Texas. It was from those late night sessions that we forged an eclectic funky/dance-able/rock-ish sound from the influences of Les Claypool, James Brown, The Doors, and Madonna. After developing our chops and chemistry as the backing band for Open Stage, a former variety show in Richardson, Texas, we came to the not-so-sudden realization that we don’t suck. Thus, Puddin Taine was born!
