So, in the end, it definitely was a tough decision to choose 'Pinto and the Bean' as our band name - for the same reason it's difficult to make any major decision life. Once you do, it's not easy to go back and change it. Yes, there have been moments we've been self conscious about it, and we wondered if people pigeonhole our music into a certain category. What kind of picture does our band name paint in a stranger's mind when hearing it for the first time? Well, we chose 'Pinto and the Bean', be it awkward, silly, memorable or all of those things and more. Popeye the sailor man said 'I am what I am and that's what I am'.

So, that's our story, and we hope you've enjoyed it.
