One of the most critically acclaimed bands of the last three decades, 10,000 Maniacs, was founded in the fall of 1981 by Robert Buck, Dennis Drew, Steven Gustafson, John Lombardo and Natalie Merchant. Jerry Augustyniak joined in 1983. Together with artists like R.E.M., they defined college rock and create the first wave of alternative rock bands and what became known 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, NY, the group toured extensively.
