311 was formed in 1990 in Omaha, Nebraska by five friends: Nick Hexum (vocals/guitar), Tim Mahoney (guitar), SA Martinez (vocals/dj), Chad Sexton (drums), and P-Nut (bass). 31 years later, they’re still rocking together. Widely regarded as one of the most entertaining & dynamic live bands in the U.S., 311 mixes rock, rap, reggae, and funk into their own unique, hybrid sound. As veterans of 2,000 shows across 27 countries, 311 is one of the longest running original lineups in rock, alongside legends like U2 and Radiohead.
311’s celebrated live shows and dedicated touring schedule have earned them a massive grassroots following nationwide. Their annual, headlining, amphitheater show is one of the most anticipated events of the summer, and a staple of the U.S. Summer touring season. Past support acts include: Sublime with Rome, The Offspring, Snoop Dogg, Slightly Stoopid, Cypress Hill, Dirty Heads, The Roots, Matisyahu, and Ziggy Marley.
311 have released thirteen studio albums, two greatest hits albums, two live albums, three DVD’s and a boxed-set, and have sold over 9 million copies in the U.S.
Ten albums reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Sales Chart – and nine of their singles have reached the Top 10 on Billboard’s Alternative Radio Chart (including three #1 singles: Down, Love Song & Don’t Tread On Me – along with Amber, All Mixed Up, Come Original, Creatures For Awhile, Hey You and Sunset in July).
