ajumatt's modnote when adding this artis was: Thanks For Nothing was formed in late December of 2003 when members of Fayetteville bands "Don't Step on my Mushroom" and "Catching Phoebe," came together to form the awesomeness that is Thanks For Nothing. Chad Moore met Travis Smith while playing music on the street of Dickson Street and the two played and jammed on numerous occasions on Friday and Saturday night on the streets. Chad and Brandon Hill, ex members of "Don't Step on my Mushroom," were in talks of starting up a new project. They approached Travis at the last Catching Phoebe show and invited him to a jam session and after that the band was formed. The night was December 21st of 2003 and on January 21 of 2004, TFN played their first performance at "Zingers" in Springdale, Arkansas. Since that date, they played over 50 shows in their first year and had many highlights, including sharing the stage with Leon Russel, Afroman, and Off by One of the VANS WARPED TOUR. In January of 2005, Thanks For Nothing entered East Hall Recording Studio to start work on their first full length album. "Crashlight," was finally finished and release in June of 2005, and is available at all TFN shows or online at The album's first single entitled "Throwdown" got regular airplay on NW Arkansas's rock station 104.9 The X, TFN was one of the only bands in Northwest Arkansas to have done that. In September, Thanks For Nothing entered the "Quapaw Casino: Battle of the Bands" in Miami, Oklahoma. The competition held 44 bands, some of which were on respected record labels. Thank For Nothing won first place in the first round of the competition, automatically pushing them to the finals. TFN walked away with second place to national touring band, "Livewire," who has opened for many country music acts in which you hear on the radio today. In November of 2005, Thanks For Nothing was nominated for an Ozark Music Award in NW Arkansas for "Best New Band," and they were chosen to be one of the few performers at ceremony. According to All About Town, TFN was said to have "Nearly Stolen The Show," and they gained a lot of respect and speed in their local music community. Thanks For Nothing are currently looking at returning to the studio and they are currently looking to take a little bit of time off to write some new material. Until then, they are booking for dates in the midwest region for any month right now. You can contact Eli Entertainment or call 479-445-2100.
