Saturday, August 26: The Arrangement @ T-Bonz Grille & Taphouse from 7:00pm to 11:00pm

The Arrangement Go Door to Door

Good afternoon, sir or madam. First, I’d like to sincerely apologize for interrupting your mid-afternoon nap by aggressively ringing the doorbell. But since you’re up, we were just wondering if you had a few moments to talk about the best acoustic cover duo ever.

You’re probably already familiar with The Arrangement, as we’ve been papering your neighborhood with flyers and posted propaganda—not to mention driving up and down your street with our windows down, blasting their tunes. Yes, we now realize that 11:30 PM on a school night was not the ideal time to do this. We probably won’t be doing it again.

So what, if any, are your musical values? Rock? Pop? R&B? Oldies? Well, The Arrangement plays all of them. Don’t like any of those? Neither do we! We’re not even a band, in fact. We’re an ice cream emporium, and you’ll love our mint chocolate chip.

In any case, do you really know how great these Arrangement guys are? Take Phil here. He’s a genius on the drums and plays rhythms that would make Questlove weep. Phil had to get his number unlisted just because Sheila E. would NOT stop calling him. We’re talking 16 times a night. And Drew? There are probably only four or five vocalists out there better than him, and two of them are named…K-Ci and JoJo.

Are you aware that you get a $2400 tax credit just by listening to The Arrangement play live? It’s true. Yeah, it’s in the fine print on your 1040EZ. Also, you might also be subject to excessive tax penalties if you don’t attend one of their live shows. No need to verify any of that with the IRS.

Thanks very much for your time. With your permission, we’d like to leave you with this box of CDs and Arrangement-branded merchandise, which we hope you’ll pass along to any of your children, neighbors, friends, coworkers, consiglieres, spiritual advisors, therapists, or anyone else who might show even the slightest interest. We’ll see you same time tomorrow? No? It’s cool.

The Arrangement will be forcefully marketing their unique brand of rockage on Saturday, August 24 at T-Bonz Grille & Taphouse from 7:00pm to 11:00pm!

They play fun and inventive covers of all your favorite songs. Unless all your favorite songs are by Luis Fonzi. Sorry, but that’s just not how The Arrangement rolls. ¡Yee-ikes!

RING OF FIRE: THE ARRANGEMENT’S HOTTEST GIGS EVER

Ladies and gentlemen, the summer sizzle is upon us! As the mercury continues to rise, let’s take a quick look back at some of The Arrangement’s hottest gigs of all time.

July 17, 2007 (Tempe, Arizona) Temps soared into the upper 120’s at Phil’s second cousin’s nephew’s pool party. Three Gatorade transfusions and an ice bath were required by the group to finish out the second set. The third set was a sad farce, consisting entirely of an improvised song by Drew called “It’s Too Hot and I Really Think I Might Be Dying (Sweet Jaysus)”.

September 6, 2011 (Miami, Florida) Opening of Johnny Nitro’s Tequileria. A bottle service sparkler mishap at roughly 11:30PM soon enveloped the entire club in flames. Without missing a beat, Phil launched into an acapella rendition of “Burning Down the House”. The remaining audience went wild, but Phil sustained third-degree burns to his vocal chords for his heroic efforts.

August 12, 2016 (Rio Grande Valley, Texas) The Brotherhood of Hibachi Chefs Local Union 392 Summer Picnic was simply a bad idea from the start. We really should’ve seen that one coming.

Statement from The Arrangement Regarding Their E! True Hollywood Story Episode

A recent broadcast of the series E! True Hollywood Story explored the rise, fall, and pleasant equilibrium of The Arrangement’s expansive musical career. Regrettably, this episode also resorted to flagrant sensationalism and rampant dramatization at the expense of truth. Misters Rosensteel and Fontaine wish to hereby contest the following portrayals in that episode:

  • At no point in their careers have Drew and Phil ghostwritten songs for Gucci Mane, Glenn Danzig, or Pat Benatar, nor for a “supergroup” consisting of all three artists.
  • Drew never bit the head off a live bat while on stage. But he has bitten the head off a five-pound gummy bear while on stage, on multiple occasions.
  • Myth: When The Arrangement play “Revolution 9” by the Beatles backward, you can clearly hear secret coded messages. Truth: The Arrangement has never figured out how to play that song forward, much less backward.
  • Phil and Drew did not publicly claim to be “bigger than Jesus,” although they constantly claim to be “bigger than Jesus Jones.”
  • The Arrangement does not annually travel to a clinic in Switzerland to have all their blood replaced with clean blood. Rather, they obtain their clean blood through standard methods—using a mail-order offer in the back of Rolling Stone magazine.

To seek redress for these damaging fabrications, The Arrangement have retained the law offices of Cohen, Dwin, Snyder, Eisenberg, Katzenberg, Saiontz, Kirk & Miles to represent us in a defamation suit against the E! Network. We will gladly disburse any monetary damages to our fans at a later show, in the form of thrown wads of cash. For all non-alternative Arrangement facts, please go straight to the source: our official blog site.

Most Sincerely,

Drew & Phil

Lies from the Stage: An Annotated Listing of Falsehoods, Fictions, and Exaggerations Made by The Arrangement

“We are gonna rock it ALL. NIGHT. LONG!” – Truthfully, we have never rocked it past 2:15 AM.

“C’MON EVERYBODY—WE CAN’T HEAR YOU!!!” – We can hear you just fine.

“The Arrangement is huge in Japan.” – We are considerably beloved there, but “huge” is overstating it.

“This is gonna be our last song tonight.” – This is not gonna be our last song. We will play no less than seven encores.

“Okay, seriously, one more song.” – Nope.

“Really, last song.” – Not even close.

“That’s got to be the first time I’ve ever fallen off a stage.” – On that particular night, maybe.

“Sorry, there’s a $150 required donation for anything by The Chainsmokers.” – Actually, that one is true.

The Arrangement Write a Modern Blues Song

Woke up this morning
My baby left at half-past-three
She Brexited out my life
And drove my Uber into a tree

She binge-watched all my shows
And spoiled them for thrills
She always came for Netflix
But never stayed to chill

Yeah, she’s a cold-hearted woman
Oh, such a savage bae
She traded in my Hamilton tickets
For a pumpkin spice latte

*Extended guitar solo by Drew*

Since the day I first swiped right
She’s been tearing me apart
She got ten thousand Fitbit steps
By stomping on my heart

(Now that just ain’t right…)

*Extended keytar solo by Phil*

I texted her “I love you”
On days we were apart
She replied with six emojis
And none of them were hearts

She’s streaming on Facebook Live
From dusk until the dawn
But when I’m down and out
She’s harder to find than Pokémon

Yeah, she’s a cold-hearted woman
Oh, such a savage bae
She traded in my Hamilton tickets
For a pumpkin spice latte

*Extended outro solos*

Saturday, December 10: The Arrangement @ The Judge’s Bench *HOLIDAY SHOW* from 9:30pm to 12:30am

Drew Reviews the Holiday Scented Candle Collection from Bath & Body Works

Winter Candy Apple – Oh, you thought candied apples were merely the domain of fall harvest parties? Like hell, Pere Noel. With red apple, candied orange, maple leaf, and fresh cinnamon, this smells like something you should sip out of an unlabeled brown jug before going a-wassailing.

Frosted Cranberry – Powerful top notes of berry with a woodsy base. Like you’d just spilled a decanter of Ocean Spray onto fresh parquet flooring.

Smoked Vanilla – A candle that literally reeks of smoke when you burn it. This is the Krampus of Christmas candles.

Fresh Sparkling Snow – Not to be confused with Vanilla Snowflake, which is a pungent abomination. Fresh Sparkling Snow’s tones of holiday pear, icy melon, and sparkling sugarberry will whisk you away on a horse-drawn sleigh ride of aromatic fancy. This one smells like fabric softener…for your soul.

Twisted Peppermint – Basically the opposite. Approximates the herbal bouquet of a warm mug of Vicks VapoRub and Rumple Minze, thrown onto a roaring fire.

Fresh Balsam – Indescribably delightful. This candle deserves its own damn holiday. A soothing balm of coniferous essence. The magic of Christmas has been born anew in my heart.
