One of the most critically acclaimed bands of the last three decades, 10,000 Maniacs were founded by Robert Buck, Dennis Drew, Steven Gustafson, John Lombardo and Natalie Merchant in the fall of 1981. Together with artists like R.E.M. they defined college rock and created the first wave of alternative rock bands and what became know as the alternative rock format on FM radio.
Writing and performing powerful, danceable and socially conscious original material in and around their hometown of Jamestown, New York the group toured extensively in the 80’s and 90’s.
By producing, manufacturing and marketing their own recordings 10,000 Maniacs were one of the original “indie” bands.
Today finds the band in their 35th anniversary and touring to support their most recent album, Twice Told Tales, a collection of traditional folk songs from the British Isles released in early 2015. The album was their second venture in crowd funding through Pledgemusic.com.
