The Aimcriers have existed since 2003 in some incarnation or another. They started in Arizona with a few different musicians, one of them being Johnny who was in a few different bands when he lived in Scottsdale: Postvale Road, The Jet Set Joules, The Calamities, Red Skirt Fleshman, and The Oh Be Joyfuls. After deciding that he had one too many 120 degree summers under his belt, he packed up his bags and moved to Michigan.
Johnny was able to keep the name, and has recruited some talented players to further the message in the Great Lake State. His brother-in-law, Billy, moved to Michigan from New Jersey and has added something special in the area of piano and Hammond organ. Billy used to play with The Wannibees and backed tons of jazz musicians in Manhattan. Back in December of 2007, The Aimcriers added Andy on bass and backing vocals, and in September of 2010, they welcomed their new Aimcrier, Danny, to fill the drum throne and add vocals. In March of 2014, The Aimcriers added Nathaniel to play keys, guitar, mandolin, and vocals.
The Aimcriers can play in any situation: they've set up Marshall half stacks and played loud and electric, and they've set up trap kits and played acoustically. They play mainly original music with a bunch of obscure covers peppered in.
