Ho-Hum is a pop/rock band based in Little Rock, Arkansas, USA, formed by the brothers Lenny and Rod Bryan.

History[edit]

The band was formed while Lenny and Rod Bryan, sports scholarship students, were attending Ouachita Baptist University in the early 1990s. A homemade demo earned the band a label deal with Universal Records, which released its first album, Local, in 1996, produced by Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley. Ho-Hum asked and were granted release from their contractual obligation to Universal when the band claimed the label did not sufficiently promote the album.[1] The band eventually formed its own label, Playadel Records, through which several subsequent albums have been released.

In 2007, Ho-Hum were still writing new music, as well as performing in Little Rock and were named "band of the decade" by Localist, a popular local magazine.

Rod Bryan ran as an independent candidate in the Arkansas gubernatorial election, 2006, coming in third in popular votes.

In 2006, Rod Bryan started a new band, Western Meds and formed First Baptist Chemical in 2011. In 2009, Lenny Bryan formed the band Mama.
