Gene Ween and Dave Dreiwitz
Gene Ween (also known as Gener), the pseudonym for Aaron Freeman (b. March 17, 1970, New Hope, Pennsylvania), is the rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist for experimental alternative rock group Ween. Alongside his longtime friend and band mate, Dean Ween, Gene helped assemble the band Ween.

When not recording or touring with Ween, Gene also keeps up a solo career - occasionally playing shows around his Pennsylvania hometown, where he still lives. Freeman has been seen performing with artists such as Jon Anderson of Yes. Freeman has also recently launched the Gene Ween band where he plays alongside Ween Bassist Dave Dreiwitz, guitarist Scott Metzger and drummer Joe Russo.

Dave Dreiwitz is the bassist for the band Ween. He is a stand-up human being and brightens the lives of all who he meets.

Peter Stampfel
Peter Stampfel was born in Wauwautosa, WI, in 1938. He dropped out of the University of Wisconsin after attending for two years, and began supporting himself by playing music, living in New York, Florida, Chicago, and several cities in California. In 1963, Stampfel formed the folk-pop unit Holy Modal Rounders with his collaborator Steve Weber. Stampfel also played in the bands Bottle Caps (who released albums in 1986 and 1989) and the Fugs. In 1994, he and guitarist Gary Lucas began a duo, the Du-Tels, to play originals, and covers of Charlie Patton, the Stanley Brothers, and other such personal heroes. By 1999, Stampfel lived in lower Manhattan, active in the Du-Tels, working as a science fiction editor, and occasionally collaborating with Chicago's the Dysfunctionells.
