One of the most acclaimed bands of the last three decades. 10,000 Maniacs defined college rock and created the first wave of alternative rock bands that 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, New York the group toured extensively and produced two independently released records, Human Conflict Number Five (1982) and Secrets of the I Ching (1983) on their own label. By producing, manufacturing and marketing their own recordings, 10,000 Maniacs were one of the original “indie” bands before signing with Elektra Records.

Although Natalie Merchant is no longer with 10,000 Maniacs, the band has the added distinction of helping to launch her solo career. The singer-songwriter and musician parted ways with the band in 1993.

2016 marks 35 years of 10,000 Maniacs and in honor of the anniversary the band released their first live album with lead vocalist Mary Ramsey, Playing Favorites.
