John Ohnmacht was born in Aspen and has been entertaining Colorado fans for the past 25 years. His former band, Band du Jour, toured nationally and internationally for six years. Band du Jour released a CD called Feel The Sun and enjoyed huge popularity in Boulder, Colorado, selling out the nationally renowned Fox Theater consistently for over three years. When Band du Jour broke up, John split to Mexico for three months. While in Mexico he heard of a blues band in his hometown of Carbondale, Colorado that needed a guitarist. So, he returned to the States and took up position fronting the 12: BarFlies. The 12:BarFlies were a well established bar band that had played extensively around the Roaring Fork valley in the mountains of Colorado. After a year of playing with the 12: BarFlies, John felt it was time to take his experience back to Boulder and start his own group.
