Join us after the Big Red Challenge for American Hitmen!

American Hitmen came together in 2005, during Operation Iraqi Freedom, when Dan Cord, Tim Cord, and Dan Jarmon were serving in Fallujah, Iraq. Playing acoustic guitars after missions with their Marine Corps units, the 3 Marines began writing music together. Upon returning to the States, they began jamming all over Southern California with their own brand of rock n roll. In 2006, they deployed to Iraq for a second time, only to find themselves performing as a supporting act to The Charlie Daniels Band while on their USO tour.

In late 2007, the American Hitmen were honorably discharged from the United States Marine Corps and decided to relocate to a city (Salt Lake City) less saturated with rock bands, in hopes of making a lasting impression in a fledgling music scene. When drummer Phil Snyder joined the group in 2008, he brought with him the breath of fresh air the American Hitmen were so desperately searching for.

Since 2008, the American Hitmen have played all over the world, sold over 20,000 albums internationally, became the first American rock band in 36 years to perform in Communist Vietnam, and the first rock band of Marine Corps combat veterans to play on the flight deck of the USS Midway, while kicking off the Vets for Freedom tour in 2008. Oh yeah, did I mention that all of these accomplishments were done without a label, a manager, or a promoter?

In 2013, the American Hitmen made it through not one, not two, but THREE elimination rounds on Season 8 of the popular America's Got Talent! They finished their run by performing live on national television at the world-famous Radio City Music Hall, in NYC. Since then, they have performed alongside Sheryl Crow, .38 Special, Lt. Dan Band, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, Wayland, and Living Colour. The American Hitmen ARE the epitome, definition, and embodiment of Rock n Roll!
