Marty Beller (born July 10, 1967) is an American drummer and songwriter. He is the current drummer for They Might Be Giants since 2004 as a result of Dan Hickey's departure. He has recorded two solo albums. He has contributed writing and vocals for two of TMBG's albums: Here Come the ABCs (on "Alphabet Lost And Found") and Here Come the 123s.

On TMBG's 2011 compilation album Album Raises New and Troubling Questions, Beller is referenced in the song "Marty Beller Mask", the lyrics of which suggest that he is actually Whitney Houston wearing a mask. On the news of Houston's death, TMBG decided to phase the song out from public performance.[1]

Personal Life[edit]

Beller is married to Jill Grinberg, and has two children; a daughter named Violet Beller (born September 12, 2005), and a son named Noah Beller (born January 18, 2008).
