Hinder and Finger Eleven, Sunday, August 15th

Hinder is authentic rock and roll – raw, big and loud. Their sound is reminiscent of legends Aerosmith, AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses with a modern guitar sound all their own. They’re rocking the grandstands at MontanaFair Sunday, Aug. 15. with Canadian alt-rockers Finger Eleven.  

Hinder’s hits include “Lips of an Angel,” “Use Me,” and “Up All Night.”

The band is made up of Joe Garvey lead guitar, Cody Hanson drums, Austin Winkler lead vocals, Mike Rodden bass, and Mark King rhythm guitar. Garvey, Hanson and Winkler started the band in 2002 in Oklahoma City.

In those early years, Hinder toured the U.S. almost non-stop and gained a following through their high-energy live shows. They released their first major EP “Extreme Behavior” in 2005 under the Universal Records label. A year later, the album was certified gold, and “Lips of an Angel” reached the top 20 in the pop singles chart. That song has since gone quadruple-platinum. 

Finger Eleven is best known for “One Thing” and “Paralyzer.”

Finger Eleven is made up of Scott Anderson vocals, James Black guitar, Rick Jackett, guitar, Sean Anderson bass, and Rich Beddoe drums. The band got together in the mid-90s when band members were still in high school.

Their most recent album “Them vs. You vs. Me,” which includes “Paralyzer,” was released in 2007. The band is currently working in its next album, which is expected to be released in October.  

Catch the Hinder and Finger Eleven show at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 15, in the grandstands. Tickets cost $35 for reserved seating and $25 for general admission. Tickets include gate admission to MontanaFair.
