SNMNMNM is a band that formed in Rochester, New York, USA. The group's name is a condensation of "Seamus 'n Matt 'n Mark 'n Matt". While completing music degrees at the Eastman School of Music, the band members got together to play outside of their studies in an alternative music band, performing several shows at Java's, a coffee shop directly adjacent to Eastman. Blending traditional brass instruments (like tuba, trombone, and trumpet) with electronics, the band self-released their first album and toured before relocating to Los Angeles in 2002. Media attention built as the band released an EP in 2002 and a full-length in 2003, continuing to tour behind the records. Their album, As Best As We Can reached #65 on the CMJ charts and was covered by the New York Times. All of the songs on As Best As We Can feature exclamation points in their titles. Their newest album, Crawl Inside Your Head was released on September 18, 2007.
For a very short time in Rochester, drummer Chris Vatalaro (another graduate of Eastman and original drummer for the band "Jerseyband") played drums for SNMNMNM.
