Al's Band is the group that normally backs up "Weird Al" Yankovic in concerts and in the studio. It consists of Steve Jay (bass), Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz (drums), Rub'en Valtierra (keyboards), and Jim "Kimo" West (guitar). In 2008, they put out their own single, with a song about the years they put in backing up Al. Hence, their inclusion here.

So Gregory, you're telling me that this "Al" guy is lying that it's his band? Sacrilege!

Is this true? I mean it - don't play around w/me here.

I'm a congenital idiot and everybody knows it. Is this really Weird Al's band? If it is, I'll vote YES till the cows come home. I love Weird Al, and I readily admit to rigging the voting on this site in favor of induction. I'll fanboy out for these guys and vote YES forever if this is true, so somebody let me know, o.k.

I just checked the wikipedia link and it leads to a dead end

Oh well...

BTW - In case anyone is interested, Coven is about to be the first band to clear 1000 posts on this site - as I write this, they are at 997. It appears as though Jinx Dawson had bewitched the site.

Now about that Jinx vs Madonna wrestling match I proposed a little while back...

Easy Cheesie. No need to get the creatures of the night going again. Here's something that will distract you all from Coven.

How 'bout "JINX VS. GODZILLA"????

Nah, she'd just gore him with her "horns". I'll bet she'd be a hit at University of Texas frat parties...!!!

There's another distraction. Just sit back, put your sunglasses and have a smoke (For the record I'm not a smoker)

Yes, it's true, Cheesecrop. They probably don't have a Wikipedia page yet but they do have a web site, http://www.alsband.net .

Gregory Pietsch is right, they're Weird Al's band
