The Baker's Basement Captivates Us Yet Again With Baseball Banter


“Baseball Banjo Duet Embraces Ballpark Shenanigans and Cleveland Legend John Adams”

Catch the “Baseball Banter,” a new song & video filled with color and hilarious dialogue

Cleveland indie folk duo the Baker’s Basement (tBB) present their new song the “Baseball Banter” — available to stream and watch on Friday, April 5th.  The eccentric pair, known for their wondrous handmade video works, greet opening day and springtime with a hilarious and wildly colorful banjo-bop and music video wherein they embrace a certain perspective on the ball park experience.

Written from the vantage of two fanatical spectators who have much to say about their favorite game, the “Baseball Banter” is a goofy and raucous tale of baseball friendship. And given the Cleveland roots of the writing and performance duo, the song was made with a nod to one of the city’s most beloved baseball supporters, the late John Adams, known for banging on a kick drum in the left field stands throughout decades of Cleveland baseball.

Those familiar with the Baker’s Basement know the subject of baseball holds a special place in their song book. In live settings, the duo sometimes assumes their alter ego, which they call the Baseball Boogie Band, as they share classic and original tunes in the spirit of America’s pastime.  The “Baseball Banter” is one of their favorites to perform, given its theatrical presentation and down-to-earth, tongue-twisting poetics.


Check out the live version of the song shot by Bands in the Bus below. Click here to see the new original video.

Side Note: One of the most interesting aspects about our endeavor is that we get to hear songs and capture footage long before their actual release. We have loved this song for nearly a year and we hope you enjoy it just as much as we do.

Go Guardians! Be sure to catch The Baker's Basement perform live at the Five O'Clock Lounge in Lakewood, Ohio this Sunday (April 7th, 2024). Stay safe out there and thank you for your continued support of live, local music.
