The idea for this band, besides the great music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young of course, came from the fertile mind of John Mondin, during an inspired conversation with Scott Nienhaus, who like Mondin, is a world class guitarist, as well as multi-instrumentalist and singer. Now 10 years later......
4&20~a tribute to CSNY, has evolved into an epic production, taking it's audiences back to the heyday of the Woodstock Generation!!
All of the arrangements, harmonies, and intricate guitar tunings are accurately performed by this amazing group of musicians, directed by Scott Nienhaus whose former band Acousticity, drew tremendous crowds in the St. Louis area, performing much of this material. Currently Scott works with Terry Jones Rogers, lifelong music veteran from the Macon,GA / Capricorn Records / Studio scene, in their duo/band ROGERS & NIENHAUS, as well as numerous other projects, including 4&20~CSNY Tribute. Tim Politte, who was the drummer in Acousticity, and is the drummer with R&N, is also the drummer in 4&20. On percussion and vocals is R. Scott Bryan, formerly with Sheryl Crow and currently with The Allman/Betts Band, and on Tympani is Madison Thorn, also a world class photographer! On keyboards is Bill Murphy, an in demand exceptional player, who also works with R&N.
Now, back to John Mondin, and his great idea... which was to merge his then band, THE MONDIN BAND with Scott, Terry, Tim, Bill, R. Scott and Madison to form 4&20. John Mondin and Paul Graves are founding and current members of 4&20, and John Mondin is currently with
Soulard Blues Band. So if you love the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young you need to see 4&20 ~ CSNY Tribute!!!
