More about 4AM the band

Eight years ago the founding fathers of 4AM set forth to local bars and found garage rock & tasty 80s jams to be entirely lacking from live bands’ setlists. Hardened with resolve, determined to change the local music scene, these patron saints of rock set forth to forge in the fiery vats of grunge, hair metal, & 80s pop a band that could replicate with the theatrics of the most detested and infamous 80s rock groups the entire 80s Training Montage Playlist and the most challenging, complex, 80s favorites that no local band dare play.

After years of perfecting the dynamic rock jams herein described, from Rifle to Eagle to Snowmass, at all types of events, charities, parties, clubs, and corporate events, masses formed at the foot of stages, the buzz of rock’s anticipation spread throughout the valley, and a music scene of the highest, most discriminating standards was born. And so this is how 4AM THE BAND came to be.
