Still working on that hot first release.



First formed by guitarist/vocalist Morgan Burmester, bassist Kyle Stewart, and drummer Wyatt Mylan in the midst of living in the blind fury of the party-laden college town Iowa City, IA. The members coalesced at a Dopapod show one fine evening in late Autumn of 2016 and decided to embark upon a quest to forge flavors of prog rock, industrial funk, reggae, and southern blues. The trio relocated to Des Moines, IA summer of 2017 and added the fourth member of the band guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Matt Van Natta who had been aggressively working on a solo EDM project until he was asked to join. The addition of Van Natta ushered in a new era of creation for TCBAS. Their ultimate vision grew into something greater than the likes of the four mere instrumentalists had ever expected; the covalent bonding of electric rock and electronic music. With the addition of trumpeter/alternate bassist/lyricist Brian Dannenmueller in fall of 2017 the meaning of the band's name became fully understood. In a society that so frequently falls victim to its own metaprogramming, tensions are clearly on the rise and many of us are awakening to the reality that only we can (and must) consciously choose to take control of our own lives. This can mean something very different to each and every individual. For Burmester, it meant cutting out meat and dairy from his diet entirely, whereas Dannenmueller decided to go full carnivore eating nothing but meat. The two still manage to coexist peacefully as band members and continue to write radically outrageous tunes. The name "The Calm Beef Aura Storm" serves as a reminder that while there may inevitably be a storm on the horizon, we can all still learn to love each other despite our differences. Now that is self-awareness!  The quintet is now blossoming into full fruition as a Jamtronica powerhouse capable of rendering nearly any style of of music with their own unique twist. What will be on the menu when the storm roles through your town?
