American Ages From L-R: Dave Joseph, Steve Wilt, Jeff Cav, Steve Tocco

Shakespeare once asked, “What’s in a name?” Well, in the case of American Ages, a lot of hassle and drama.

They started in 2011 with the name, Ages Apart. The name was based on their singer being nearly half the age of the other three guys in the band. A few years later they received a notice from the lawyer of a band named Ages Apart threatening to sue them for trademark infringement.

So they changed their name to American Band. A few years later They received a notice from the lawyer of a band named Grand Funk Railroad – The American Band threatening to sue them for trademark infringement.

Having really liked their first two names, in January 2019 they decided the third, newest band name would be a hybrid of their original names.

American Ages is the little band with a big sound. They play Classic Rock, New Rock and New Country hits with great musicianship, vocals and vocal harmonies.
