THE SOFTWARE

The Band Famous is the first interactive debut app album self-released by the band, musical group TBF (The Band Famous®).

It is available for the iOS and Android platforms. It features the complete debut album, Last Words, an app-exclusive that is available offline, along with "Cycle of Destruction", a strategy, retro, sophisticated "Rock, Paper, Scissors" style video game with high difficulty to master.

The Band Famous® app also features their live interactive in-app concerts at the touch of a button, among other features.

The Band Famous® is also available as a mobile web app, featuring an online radio station.

The Hall Of Fame is an online music collective brought to you by The Band Famous®.

Along with being the founding, active members of the music group The Band Famous® aka TBF, Zander and Norell are also the developers behind this website you are on, both TBF apps, and the Hall Of Fame.

The Hall Of Fame acts as a portal by connecting new fans to music across multiple genres they've been waiting to find. There is so much good music just waiting to be discovered, and we like to think that we are doing our part by accepting submissions to be featured in the Hall Of Fame for free promotion indefinitely.

TBF Radio is our online radio station where we feature music sampling the Hall Of Fame roster, as well as some improvised and other B-tracks by TBF, some that are heard no-where else, like "Autotune Appreciation".

TBF Radio requires no sign-up or account login of any kind, and is commercial-free!


THE MUSICAL ARTIST

Zander and Norell are a husband/wife duo and the founding and current active members of the music group The Band Famous® aka TBF. They are the first band in the world to release a debut musical album, Last Words, of improvisation in the form of an interactive app, built by the band members' themselves.

Terrance Schubring aka Jambots contributed to the debut album production, and also the game, "Cycle of Destruction" in The Band Famous apps. He performed on stage with Norell for the debut app album release party at the Gay 90s, and also collaborated with Norell for the song "Promises" on the anticipated 2nd album Awakening. Other past performing members include guitarist Edwin P. Scherr.

TBF has gone on to perform various pop-up style concerts broadcasting to their app audience. The Band Famous® performed live in Union Square in NYC, interacting with passerby in the park. The entire performance was broadcast to The Band Famous® app audience in 2015.

In December 2015, The Band Famous® live-streamed at Fix Coffee in Echo Lake Park near downtown Los Angeles, and in January 2016 TBF live-streamed from Capital One Cafe on Santa Monica Blvd in Los Angeles.

Every concert that TBF hosts, produces and/or performs is broadcast to the TBF audience on both the Android and iOS platforms. On rare occasions, TBF will broadcast other events through their apps, such as Feminine Weapon Day 2018 in Los Angeles. Zander and Norell ran the photobooth taking pictures for founder of Feminine Weapon, Christina Weber, musician and actress V. Bozeman, and others while broadcasting the entire event through the TBF apps.

TBF also live-streams every performance on twitch.tv, and anyone can tune in via the eSports section of bandfamous.com.

TBF has always been independent. Zander and Norell handle all PR, HR, and creative productions, as well as outreach for the Hall Of Fame; but that doesn't mean they aren't open to the right partnerships.

Follow Your Dreams!

01/19/2019 - The Band Famous "Follow Your Dreams",
event with LA Food Bank as charitable beneficiary.

Being that January 15th is the birthday of one of the greatest activists for humanity, and Monday, January 21st is Martin Luther King Jr. day, we wanted to host a celebration of unity, and a celebration of the beauty that is the right to follow your dreams.

We believe everybody deserves the chance to create the life they want for themselves, and we know sometimes this is easier said than done. As brothers and sisters, we must band together to lift each other up and help one another persevere. Never give up. Follow your dreams and help make the world a better place to live in.

We hosted a food drive in partnership with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, which serves one million individuals, including 400,000 children, annually.

Los Angeles Food Bank

The LA Food Bank distributes food and other essentials to children, seniors, families and others in need.

We accepted donations to aid homeless youth, and collected donations of non-perishable food items that we delivered to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
