The PRETTYMUCH fandom is everything, but do you know the story of how they got their name?
In a recent interview, the five guys – Brandon Arreaga, Edwin Honoret, Austin Porter, Nick Mara and Zion Kuwonu – revealed where the name BEANZ comes from, and surprisingly, the fans wanted it for themselves!
The story goes like this: when the band first started, they called themselves the BEANZ and once they became PRETTYMUCH, the fans still wanted to honor the band’s start in music by calling themselves the BEANZ and, of course, the boys loved it!
Check out the rest of the story, by watching the interview, below:
“Brandon, Edwin, Austin, Nick, Zion – the first letters spell out BEANZ. We started on SoundCloud, we had this little page where we did covers, and we had this neon BEANZ sign in the house and everybody loved it, so before we were PRETTYMUCH to the world, everyone referenced us as the BEANZ. So when we changed the name to PRETTYMUCH, everyone was like ‘can we have the fandom be the BEANZ.'”
The guys of PRETTYMUCH love their fans! They recently reacted to a fan’s cover of their song, “Open Arms”!
