21 Strong / Bio

21 Strong is a blend of dark, angular riffs mixed with singable melodies with awe inspiring vocals that will leave you wanting more. 21 Strong also bring a refreshing sense of fun back to metal with a sense of humor on stage. They aren't one of those "I'm so badass" unapproachable "rock star" types. They are the type of guys that will hangout with you while having more than few drinks and share some laughs before and after a show. They were quoted as saying " We just want to have a good time and play some killer Metal".

History of 21 Strong

Summer of 2005 Jimbo and Dave met at a party and started jamming together. Soon after they got together with Jesse , a singer Dave had worked with for many years, and formed the band Fallen Vegas. For the next five years the band played countless number of shows, playing out of state as much as possible and opening up for several headlining bands such as Lamb of God, Hell Yeah, Five Finger Death Punch, Kittie, Flaw, Powerman 5000, Spineshank just to name a few. Through the years of Fallen Vegas, they struggled to keep a drummer. Going through six or seven drummers set them back until finally Sebe came into the picture. Jimbo and Sebe were friends and played in a previous band. After the loss of our last drummer and rhythm guitarist, Jimbo finally got a hold of Sebe who had recently quit another band, together they finally had a solid lineup. After a long 10 years of writing music, and playing shows, Dave took a break for a year but the rest of the band joined up with another guitarist and because of the new line up, It was a fresh start. They needed a new name and the band became 21 Strong. Through 2010 they played as much as possible winning the first round in two major battle of the bands and going to the semi finals in one event. As a four piece band the group took on a rhythm guitarst Mike Knuckillz from the band d.i.M. Right after Knuckillz started playing, Dave joined back up with the band forming the skin melting, in your face and down your throat music that your getting from us now.
