Bourgeois Tagg was an 80's group named after Dallas, TX founders (and freinds) Brent Bourgeois and Larry Tagg.  Brent started playing piano in a bar at 13.  In the late 1970's, after high school, the two set off for California, where they played in a Sacramento band called Uncle Rainbow.  In 1984, the two joined up with guitarist Lyle Workman, drummer Michael Urbano, and keyboardist Scott Moon to form Bourgeois Tagg.  Brent also handled keyboard duties while Tagg handled the bass, and both Bourgeois and Tagg traded off on vocal duties.

In 1986, Bourgeois Tagg released their self-titled album.  There were two singles released on this album, but the only one that received any air time to speak of was "Mutual Surrender (What a Wonderful World)".  It was Bourgeois Tagg's 1987 release, Yoyo, that brought us the top 40 Billboard hit "I Don't Mind at All".  Although this song barely broke the Billboard Top 40, it was a huge hit over seas and a top 5 hit in the Adult Contemporary chart.  MTV helped to fuel the success of the song by airing it's music video often.   

By 1989, tensions between Bourgeois and the rest of the band hand reached a head, and Bourgeois Tagg split up.  Some sources cite Brent's wild lifestyle and subsequent turn to Christianity as reasons for the breakup.  Members of the band went on to other projects, including Brent Bourgeois who released a self-titled solo album in 1990 and eventually became a well known Christian artist.  At the time of this writing, fans could meet Brent during the 11:00 AM services at St. Mark's United Methodist Church in Sacramento.  The Bourgeois Tagg Discography is as follows:

    I DON'T MIND AT ALL:
    [starts] The time for talking is over now, I guess it's time to let you go, But I don't, no, I don't mind at all
    [chorus] It's important to me, that I don't see you laughing at me, But I'm smart enough to know, that I have to let you go, But I don't mind at all [etc]
