the legendary 4-nikators were originally formed in 1958 with the intention
of playing 60’s, 70’s
and motown music. since
it hadn’t been written yet,
they had to wait until 1979 to
have their first practice session.
the band is also honored to play
50’s music if requested.

the six musicians have been on
a twenty-year extended world tour
but still take time to perform
for parties, concerts and weddings
in the northern hemisphere.
speaking of nuptials, the legendary
4-nikators have played weddings
in such famous and exclusive places
as new york city, new orleans,
chicago, sun valley and niwot.
however, due to their deeply held
spiritual convictions, they will
never, ever play the macarena
or the chicken dance.

diverse colorado venues as mcnichols
arena, fillmore auditorium, fiddler’s
green, folsom stadium, invesco
field at mile high stadium, coors
field, the gerald ford amphitheater

1989 and 1999 world alpine ski
championships in vail, as well

elton john and many others.
at one chicago party featuring
james brown and aretha franklin,
