The members of the band go by the assumed names, Steve Hampton Trouzdale on bass and vocals, Steve "Gordo" Gordon on guitar and vocals, Herschal Tambor Brillstien on keyboards and vocals, and Lapland "Lapdog" Miclovik on drums and vocals.

The first poster for Festeroo actually features five bands Les Claypool has played with. Oysterhead, Les Claypool's Frog Brigade, Sausage, The Holy Mackeral, and C2B3 (Colonel Claypool's Bucket of Bernie's Brains). See more »
I saw Les Claypool last night at the House Of Blues in Dallas, and I bought this for THIRTY smackeroos! But it's alright because it's a "limited collector's item" AND because it was absolutely glorious! The comedy is sharp and with the signature cleverness that inhabits all of the Colonel's writing. The culture of the modern jam band world is explored with a mighty thoroughness. A lot of inside jokes for Lesheads. Flouncin Fred, Gabby La La, and Gordo and Aiwass played by Mr. Kehoe Nation and Bob C. Cock respectively. I give it 10 out of 10 and can say I was wholly satisfied as a big Les Claypool fan and as an admirer of good flicks.
"Bound to be a cult hit!"
