Frontman and the Otherguys / Bio

Frontman & the Otherguys (FM&TOG) are a 7-piece rock group of former and current students from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. Formed in fall 2011, they initially performed exclusively in Northfield but have since expanded into the Twin Cities and surrounding areas. Drawing influences from too many genres to list off, FM&TOG utilize their distinct lineup of voices, guitar, strings, synths, percussion, and whatever else is lying around to create a unique indie rock sound. Their repertoire includes covers from across rock/pop history as well as a handful of original songs by composer/arranger Cooper J. Alt. By the end of 2013 they intend to record and release a full-length album of original material.
