20/20 Hindsight is based out of Mason City, Iowa. The band was formed in the early months of 2004. Since 20/20 stepped on the stage for it's first live performance winning a battle of the bands, the four members of the band have strived to pave a unique path in the independent music community. To just play some shows in various places around the state wasn't enough. How about a show in every county of Iowa? That idea was the inspiration for the band to create it's '99 County Tour'. 20/20 is attempting to be the first band from Iowa to play a live show in every one of the state's ninety-nine counties. It will be a challenging journey. The band's 1985 converted school bus that transports them and their equipment will log thousands of miles. When that final show is played, these four guys will have accomplished something that has never even been attempted before by an Iowa band. The members of the band also felt the need to help others as they travel the interstates, highways, and byways of Iowa. In January of 2005 they met with Iowa's Governor Tom Vilsack to announce a charity program the band had created to assist various charities, non profit organizations, and individuals in need. Each month, a different group is chosen to collect funds for. At every live performance the band passes around a container for anyone who'd like to put a donation into. The band also contributes money from every CD they sell to each collection. As of May 30, 2006 over $3,400 has been raised by the band and it's fans. Organizations who have benefited include the United Way Disaster Relief Fund, Camp Courageous, Ronald McDonald House, Crisis Intervention Center, VH1 Save The Music Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, St Judes Childrens Hospital, and numerous others. This effort will always be a part of the band and it's journey throughout Iowa and anywhere else they may perform. 20/20 Hindsight is very interested in helping promote the music community in Iowa. Whether we, or any other band from our state 'makes it' in the music industry, it only helps to move all our dreams forward. PROMOTE Indie Music in Iowa! Go to a show for a band you haven't seen live yet. Buy a band's CD or EP. If you like what you've heard, tell all your friends. It's all about the music...
