Eggboy Loves Itty-Bitty


Eggboy Loves Itty-Bitty was a short-lived acoustic rock band formed by Wade Mueller (guitar, vocals) and Brandon McKean-Shields (upright bass) in the summer of 2004. The self-proclaimed "hometown legends" of Springfield, Missouri got their name from an infamous local tagger who plagued the downtown area throughout the nineties. As legend has it, Eggboy climbed a fire escape to the top of the historic Colonial Hotel in downtown Springfield with several cans of metallic silver spray paint the night before Valentine's Day.

Eggboy Loves Itty-Bitty was a short-lived acoustic rock band formed by Wade Mueller (guitar, vocals) and Brandon McKean-Shields (upright bass) in the summer of 2004. The self-proclaimed "hometown legends" of Springfield, Missouri got their name from an infamous local tagger who plagued the downtown area throughout the nineties. As legend has it, Eggboy climbed a fire escape to the top of the historic Colonial Hotel in downtown Springfield with several cans of metallic silver spray paint the night before Valentine's Day. Hanging up side down from the roof top, he proclaimed his love for his then girlfriend by painting "Eggboy Loves Itty-Bitty" on two sides of the building for all to see.

The graffiti remained for years until it was modified in 1996 to read "Eggboy Loves Freedom" at the request of Eggboy's new fiance. Only days later, the scrawl was once again revised by an unknown party who added the word "Scramble" before Eggboy's name. The graffiti remained until the hotel was eventually leveled to construct a new parking lot several months later. Eggboy Loves Itty-Bitty performed regularly at Culley's Pub and within the downtown area at various bars, clubs, coffee shops, street corners, and the occasional roof top concert. Their music focused on local incidents and attitudes as evident in songs like Blown-Up Meth Lab Blues, inspired by local headlines and It Was All Downtown, a protest song about the decline of private business which incites the audience to "burn down the piano bar." Although they auditioned many other musicians, including drummer Nathan Gamel, the group remained a duo until they eventually disbanded in 2006.
