I've heard that the band plays nude, is that true?
The Gun and Doll Show has appeared nude, But only once at a show that was billed as "Live Nude Bands" featuring local San Francisco bands at The Fillmore West. A game show determined which groups would play their set in the buff. Somehow, we lost. While we bare our souls in song, we have not appeared nude since and have no trouble keeping our costumes on.

How much do you charge?
Quality is not cheap, but if you have a good venue, we can usally work something out to benifit all.
