The multi-platinum selling band Good Charlotte was founded in Waldorf, Maryland circa 1996. The group’s 2000 self-titled debut laid the foundation with the singles “Little Things” and “Festival Song,” but 2002’s The Young and the Hopeless catapulted their brand of pop-punk into the stratosphere, making them one of the biggest bands of the new millennium. Highlighted by the single “Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous,” that album sold almost 5 million copies and set them on a path to super stardom.

In late 1980’s, Gin Blossoms started to grow a huge following as the #1 local music draw in Phoenix, Arizona but it was not until their breakout record “New Miserable Experience” in 1992 that their rise to fame began. “New Miserable Experience” kept the band on the charts for almost 3 years with singles “Hey Jealousy,” “Allison Road,” “Until I Fall Away,” “Mrs Rita,” and “Found Out About You.” The album took the airwaves by siege and held MTV hostage with multi cross-over hits in 4 different radio formats. It was this record that rocketed the band into the mainstream going on to sell over 5 million copies making the band a 90’s radio mainstay.

They have a robust calendar of live dates scheduled and look forward to seeing everyone out on the road.

Cracker will be performing at Celebrate Fairfax! Festival’s newest addition, the Sunday Brew. Throughout the band’s 24-year history they have been described as a lot of things: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms punk and classic-rock thrown at them. Over the years, Cracker has amassed ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe (“Low,” “Euro-Trash Girl,” “Get Off This” and “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me” to name just a few), and a worldwide fan base.
