The Knobs / Bio

The Knobs formed in 2006 for a High School talent show, but things really started taking off for them in October 2009, when they acquired management from S&S Entertainment. They began gaining new fans and new opportunities. In May of 2010, Citadel Broadcasting asked them to open for Ratt in Des Moines. This eventually led to playing SummerJam 2010 featuring Night Ranger, Skid Row, Winger & others with 6000 in attendance.

Influenced mainly by classic 70's and 80's hard rock, the Knobs play pure, unadulterated rock n' roll. The four members were raised listening to all of the rock giants. Their original music transcends generations. Their high energy stage show makes them a fan favorite.

In 2010 the Knobs performed 40 shows to over 14,000 people.
