Aim for the Elbow is, first and foremost, a collection of music-freak friends from Milwaukee, WI. They derive a majority of what they know from the true masters of classic rock. They decided to take the first step of bandhood in the winter of 2008, when Dan got his first kit. Steve had been playing guitar for 12+ years before either Jacob or Dan had picked up their instruments, but constantly challenging themselves during practices and keeping a strong interest in creating songs has kept the band moving forward.
In February of '10, AFTE participated in a local Battle of the Bands at The Rave in Milwaukee, coming in 3rd in the initial first round. But, when August rolled around for the second round, they won, altogether beating out 15 other local bands!
Currently, AFTE is on a Led Zeppelin frenzy, and will not stop, no matter how many faces are melted.
