The Forty Nineteens are Garage Rock, Freakbeat, with a Motor City powerplant and good-time raucousness. Their sound was forged in LA's underground alternative scene. John and Nick (from Detroit and Pittsburgh) were in The Leonards and Mary's Danish.

They are heard on college/commercial, national/international radio, and Sirius XM Radio. The band regularly opens for artists such as: Robin Zander, Fleshtones, Gin Blossoms, The Fixx, Wang Chung, and Oingo Boingo.

The Forty Nineteens' newest LP "Rebooted" takes a psychedelic garage rock trip down 1960’s Sunset Strip, with top down and the radio on. The door is open, climb on in.

"Rebooted" is the third collaboration between the band and producer/engineer David Newton (The Mighty Lemon Drops). David brings his style and knowledge of the 60’s era to pull it all into focus. Returning on keyboards is former Stevie Wonder sideman Kevin McCourt. Theremin sounds were handled by Jason "Mongoose" Eoff of Los Straitjackets contemporaries, The Outta Sites.

Steve Anthony: Radio Caroline
   "It's fun, it's brilliant and I guarantee that 'Rebooted' will put a smile on your face."

Dr Kiljoy: WNCD Youngstown
    "Rebooted" is way different than their previous efforts. Influenced by Mid 60s Surf, Freakbeat, Radio Caroline, and Neo Psychedelia Paisley Underground, it reminds me of early Doors, and The Who."

They're back on Goldie's Garage April 15. Little Steven's Underground Garage: Sirius XM Channel 21
