About .340 Magnum

.340 Magnum is a five piece, high energy, "variety" band that plays everything from good old rock and roll to modern upbeat country music. We cover a variety of great artists from Van Morrison to Van Halen as well as Johnny Cash to Jason Aldean. We love to play great songs where just hearing the opening riff draws people out to the dance floor to bust their favorite dance move and sing along with the band!

While .340 Magnum is a relatively new band (formed in July 2012), it consists of 5 seasoned musician with years of experience from playing in other successful local bands. So for your next event, give us a call and we'll bring the party!

Best Band EVER!

By Lisa K. on May 2, 2016

I am so thankful that.340 Magnum played for my husband's surprise 50th birthday party. My husband enjoyed every minute that .340 Magnum played. He is a musician so he appreciated the talent and was smiling the whole night. Our guests were blown away at how wonderful the band sounded, how accommodating and flexible they were and how they made our night extra special by letting our daughters sing happy birthday to their dad! It is a night that we will always cherish and I will be forever grateful to have had .340 Magnum play for my husband, family and all of our friends there! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for amazing musicians that play classic rock and county. Don't miss out on this band! They are a must have for any event! I can't wait to hear their new CD. I am going to give it to my husband for Christmas. : ) (Shhh...another surprise for him. : ) ) I am trying to figure out if there is another event that I can hire them to do in the near future. They are that good...not kidding.
