Let's Meet Mylo

I've been working on a project with my friend Clyde, and now that the project is done (minus a few additions to come later), I'd like to tell you about it.

First, lets meet Clyde. If you're anywhere in North Dakota, you've probably already heard of him, but outside of NorDakota, he just has a lot of fans-in-waiting (folks who are going to love him, but just haven't heard of him yet!). Clyde and Janet

Clyde Bauman, professional musician and entertainer from Bismarck, North Dakota. Clyde is married to Janet; they have one daughter, Sarah. Their passion for music is blended with their Christian faith in a gospel song ministry. Since 1986, the Baumans have been presenting programs of gospel and inspirational songs for a variety of events.

I first met Clyde a coupla/few years ago in James White's chat channel #prosapologian (See, you just meet all kinds of clever, talented and interesting people on the internet).

Now that you've met Clyde, let's meet Mylo!

Clyde Bauman, professional musician and entertainer from Bismarck, North Dakota, is the creator and portrayer of the character "Mylo Hatzenbuhler." He explains how Mylo came to be:

Look everyone, it's MYLO!!"While a student at Dickinson State College, I performed comedy sketches with a small group of students, one of whom was Henry Smith from Hazen, North Dakota. He and I hatched the idea of a big-time rock band made up of all farm kids, complete with accents and overalls, and from that idea, Mylo and Darryl, the Hatzenbuhler Brothers, were born. Henry played guitar, I played piano and bass; we recruited some friends to form a six-piece band, and did a few shows on campus. I still can't figure out how, but we instantly developed this huge following. After college, we all went our separate ways. Back in Bismarck, I got the occasional request to do 'some of those Hatzenbuhler songs.' I ended up performing at the state FFA convention; after that, I started getting inquiries from more and more places, and now I present Mylo about 150 times a year. Who could have thought?"


You can go right here to Farmboymusic.com and learn all about Mylo, his music, book a concert and even play some fun games to pass the time while your corn grows, or your cows moo, or whatever's going on at your farm today.

Now that you've met Clyde, and Mylo, I'm happy to announce Mylo's new store:

Authentic Mylo Gear

Great new products in store!! Come by and check it out, bring the kids, bring the coffee.

It'll be fun, just like a trip to the silo!
