Tenacious D

Bio

Jack Black and Kyle Gass make up the Greatest Band in History: Tenacious D. They started playing together in Kyle’s studio apt on Cochran Ave in Los Angeles. No one could have ever dreamed of where their genius would take them but take them it did…

The band had a variety series on HBO that aired in 1999. Their self-titled album was released in the fall of 2001 with Epic Records and was quickly certified at gold-selling status, and has since been certified platinum. The duo completed their first feature film together, “Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny” for New Line Cinema, which was released in November 2006. The album “Rize of the Fenix” followed in 2012.

In 2013, Black and Gass founded Festival Supreme, a music and comedy festival in Los Angeles. The now-annual extravaganza has included some of the best acts in the world, including Adam Sandler, Sarah Silverman, Fred Armisen, Nick Kroll, Die Antwoord, Cheech & Chong, Margaret Cho, The Aquabats, Zach Galifianakis, Demetri Martin, Maria Bamford, Amy Poehler, Hannibal Buress, Tig Notaro, T.J. Miller, The Kids In The Hall, Aubrey Plaza, Henry Rollins, Andrew W.K. and many more.
