Nancy And Beth (Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt) are a self-described punk vaudeville band, performing choreographed songs off of their self-titled debut album which released on April 7. Mullally which may be most recognized for her supporting role as Karen Walker on “Will and Grace” among many others and Hunt who many may recognize as the bassist Devin Boland in “Friday Night Lights” met on the set of an indie movie they were shooting back in 2012. Their love of haiku’s and deconstructing old standards with weird humor was the birth of Nancy and Beth. While the band takes music very seriously the comic sensibility of Mullally and Hunt are what create that vaudevillian musical journey. Performing contemporary numbers like Rufus Wainwright's "Vibrate" and Gucci Mane's "I Don't Love Her" alongside classics like the Mills Brothers' "Cab Driver," Louis Jordan's "Jack, You're Dead," and George Jones "He Stopped Loving Her Today" is what make the composition of Nancy and Beth so fun. The LA Times wrote, “Nancy And Beth is as sharp as any revivalist act going today (though likely much, much daffier) ….Everything is performed so perfectly (and even sometimes movingly), that their comic sensibility subverts the whole act into something weirder.”
