Five O'Clock Shadow History

Five O

Based in: Boston, United States.

Five O'Clock Shadow, the all-vocal rock band from Boston, is living proof that a band without instruments can still rock! Using the same tech wizardry that guitarists have been using since the dawn of rock, Dan, Oren, Paul, and Caleb morph their voices into shredding guitar riffs and soaring solos right before your very ears. Meanwhile, their one-man vocal rhythm section, Stack, lays down his "beatbass": mouth beats and vocal bass thundering forth from his face, both at the same time! Yet when you take away all the speakers, amps, and microphones, these guys are still singers right down to the soul!

Also known as "FOCS", Five O'Clock Shadow has vocally rocked audiences of all ages throughout the US and Japan, and in every kind of venue. Through their educational program FOCS has presented workshops and concerts to thousands of music students from coast to coast.

FOCS also has a long list of distinguished corporate clients including Panasonic, LG Electronics, Clear Channel Entertainment, EMC Corporation, and Mohegan Sun. They've performed for the Boston Celtics, the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots, and the NFL Football Hall of Fame. Numerous TV appearances include VH-1, FOX News, WB's Morning Show, A&E, ESPN, and many more. MTV Online called Five O'Clock Shadow "the number one vocal pop band of the new millennium!!"
