Episode 35: Unbanded Brothers

Episode 35

22nd September 2011

Brothers and bandmates Jack and Jeff bring this argument over tourdates, a wedding and being the boss of the band.

Episode notes

We are assisted by the guest bailiff stylings, chosen especially for this case, of Monte Belmonte. Monte hosts a very popular morning radio show at 93.9 The River in Northampton, Massachusetts. We very much appreciate his musical expertise and fine baliffing.

Jack brings this case against his brother and bandmate Jeff. They play together on albums and on tour as The Jeffrey Lewis Band. Jack had requested several days off on their upcoming European tour to attend a friend’s wedding, which seemed unprofessional to his older brother Jeff.

Who is “the boss” of the band? Was Jack right to ask to schedule the band’s tourdates around his own schedule? These questions, and more, answered by the Honorable Judge John Hodgman.
