Two earth-based guitars, vocals with an edge.  

Oatmeal for the Foxhounds is a guitar duo that performs a wide range of musical styles. Their repertoire includes everything from Johnny Cash to Green Day plus a few originals. The duo is loaded with talent and experience. Banastre Tarleton is a gifted and well-traveled singer/songwriter who has toured all over North America and opened shows for many national acts, including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, The Guess Who, Molly Hatchet, Head East, and Twisted Sister. Tarleton has had several radio hits during his career and continues to record and release projects on the Green Horse Records label. Banastre’s partner in the duo, Screamin’ Randy Beeman, did a stint with Banastre Tarleton Band in the early 90’s. In addition to being a Foxhound, Randy is the lead guitarist for a St. Louis-based rock group, KLII. He also owns and operates The Maple Room Recording Studio and has mastered and helped produce many projects, including O4TF’s albums. Oatmeal for the Foxhounds was formed in October 2000 by Tarleton and long-time musical associate David McGowan. Billing themselves as two earth-based guitars, vocals with an edge, and a couple of foot-powered tambourines, O4TF made a name for itself as one of the top acoustic acts in the Midwest, playing a heavy schedule of concerts, club dates, and private parties. In the fall of 2002 they offered their fans a double-live CD, Live Soundblaster Bootleg, and a follow up, Live in Hartsburg, was made available in May 2003. A five-song CD, Tally Ho, was released by Green Horse in March 2005. After ten years of steady gigging, McGowan officially retired in 2010 and Beeman took over the lead guitar duties and co-pilot position.
