The Forty Nineteens

Garage Rock, with Motor City roots and good time raucousness. A 4019 credit in legal talk is time off for good behavior. We all could use some "time off" for good behavior.

The Forty Nineteens can regularly be heard in Little Steven's Underground Garage Sirius XM, college and commercial radio.  They've performed with X, Gin Blossoms, Robin Zander, The Alarm, The Fixx and others. 

John Pozza: vocals / Chuck Gorian: guitar / Matt Colleran: guitar /  Kevin Barber: bass /  Nick Zeigler: drums

The band members learned their chops in LA performing at the legendary Raji's and Palomino Club, in the Cowpunk, Paisley Underground, Alt scenes. The Forty Nineteens continue this freewheeling spirit.

Matt (penned Don't Crash the Car Tonight) and Nick are former members of LA faves Mary's Danish. John performed with LA garage rockers The Leonards. They regularly played with The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Yo La Tengo, The Blasters, Redd Cross, Billy Bremner and countless others.
