10,000 Maniacs

10,000 Maniacs was formed in Jamestown, NY, in 1981 by singer Natalie Merchant and guitarist John Lombardo. The group gigged extensively and recorded independently before signing with Elektra and releasing their debut in 1985. Co-founder Lombardo left the band in 1986, and they continued as a quintet, releasing three more albums. After 1992's Our Time in Eden had finished its run on the charts, Merchant announced that she was leaving for a solo career. The remaining 10,000 Maniacs decided to continue performing, adding the folk-rock duo John & Mary (original member Lombardo and violinist/vocalist Mary Ramsey). The new lineup released two albums before parting ways. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Natalie merchant vocals sounds so penetratj
I love her voice that is so distinctive which gives all her music a life of it's own. Charming, yet strong and willful to defy standards set by others.
I saw them in June 2014 in Des Moines IA.... Mary was awesome.... energetic stage performance. . . c r o w d was dancing and having a great time....

Natalie voice gives me a feeling of calm comfort and her music is always what I go back to.
Natalies voice is soothing, magical & just a pure soulful sound of whatever or whomever she sings with or about. The songs are just magic!!!!
More unplugged tracks please :-). Wow that voice. The maniacs were such a wonderful fit. Clean, complimentar y , strong! Damn I miss tramping to shows on a whim. Who? Where? Sure I'll get my coat. Youth, don't waste it when you're young!
Magic in her voice!!!

She's a storyteller, musically. <3
Natalie's voice is magic. I was hooked the first time I heard it in college. Verdi cries strikes a cord so deep in me I can't explain it.
do you remember the first time you heard this song
Unplugged and In My Tribe will forever be etched on my heart.

Please don't hate on our wedding song and Natalie Merchant.
katejmiddlet o n
this is our wedding song from 1998
This is Natalie Merchant. she was with the band when they recorded this song
What the hell. This isn't Natalie Merchant. She left 10,000 maniacs? They don't sound nearly as good. Major bummer.
Love this band, Natalie makes the band brilliant. Great songs.
Patti Smith version on Because the Night is better
MAN I GROW UP IN THE 80' I SO LUCKY I GOT TO SEE 10.000 MANIACS
Wow! Takes me back ! ❤ still love her voice !
I was on JCC radio. Knew the boys before Merchant. Sweet to watch it from the ground floor.
Wow bcmac87 knows so much about the 10,000 Maniacs;) hahaha ;-b
:-)♡
Another mistake on the bio is she announced leaving before the release of Eden. The Ramesy Maniacs were better anyway.
I have to agree with lindylv61, I grew up in J'town as well and this biography is pretty awful. I knew Natalie and more directly her brother and sister. I went to JCC with the Rob (RIP), Steve and Dennis and know that 10,000 Maniacs existed and played college and other gigs in the area before Natalie joined them. All you have to do is check out Facebook to know that the band is alive and well, sans Natalie. Will always be a huge Maniacs fan, in all its incarnations ! !
My dad used to work with Rob at Hopes in Jamestown, and a friends band used to play in the same clubs abd gigs as the maniacs in J-town. Love this Group, Just saw Natalie with the BPO in Buffalo and she still is amazing! :)
Bruce Springsteen song - Because The Night

What about their Unplugged album? That was huge, and it was how I learned about them.
slatpet64
SERVOSS Family of Jamestown loves this band as well
i love this band forever

Natalie Merchant is one of my favs singers!
'Cuse me?? I am from Jamestown, know these guys and would appreciate the bio fixed and updated, give more credit where credit is due,,, Dennis Drew, Steve Gustafson, and Rob Buck.
RIP Rob......
I thought 10,000 Maniacs was unique because they supported Merchant's vocals in such a clean, minimalist way. Augustyniak in particular seemed to be able to be a master of this--I remember a few live songs where he just slapped his thigh.

When she went solo, she lost that. The guitar is mixed nearly as prominently as her voice. That, plus the more self-absorbe d lyrics, turned me off to Merchant.

I thought Mary Ramsey had a great voice--hopin g they can re-form around her for an album or two.
Met Rob Buck many years ago after a show in Philly. I was sad to hear he has since passed from cancer.
The bio is also wrong in that it says the new lineup has parted ways. That's incorrect. The group is still performing and still recording. I've heard some of the new tracks and they're absolutely great.
Awesome song. You can feel the frustration of the character. Hypnotic guitar. Timeless and enduring.
The bio info here is wrong and as a fan that bugs me. Natalie and John were both there at the beginning but the true founding members were Dennis Drew, Steve Gustafson, and Rob Buck.
I caught the Maniacs in Albany, NY yesterday, and they were fantastic! I love Mary Ramsey's voice .. and the band was spectacular, with a great mix of different sounds and instrumental delights. Go see them if you get the chance. I also heard of an upcoming album.
Well Damn some of her catchy sayings are in the lyrics. One of them is the title in my tribe. She always harping about how you gotta keep up with your tribe. Now i understand how far back that little nugget of wisdom goes back to.
S**t you not my mother Kathleen Alison named this band. They where all discussing the name of the band at my mothers place and after getting pretty miffed (which is happens often and hell seems like a vacation when does) yelled at them "You ten thousand maniacs!" I'm just glad that my mother's friends played good music or this would go for awesome to embarrassing story.

Thank you for reviving my love for Natalie; Unplugged all weekend!
Great music
I love this band, but I don't know how they think they are able to go on with the wonderful Natalie Merchant.
I still think the 10,000 Maniacs Unplugged session was the best of the series
