They even do Wedding Standards, but don't let that fool you, they will get you on the dance floor and rock you with a high energy performance and great vocals.

Conniption Fits - Rock/Contemporary

Having already had songs on MTV, ESPN's X-Games, CBS's Vans Triple Crown as well as national radio, Stevens Blanchard started The Conniption Fits in 2003 following his success with the band Motorplant (disbanded in 2001).

The Conniption Fits sound has been compared to Jimmy Eat World, Green Day, Foo Fighters, Silversun Pickups, u2, The Police and David Bowie. While they draw on a wide variety of influences, they manage to carve out a unique, pop rock sound.

Shawn Snyder, also from Motorplant, started on drums, Erik Von Geldern held down the bass and Tuck Stocking was the band's fourth member from 2005 to 2007. Shawn left, so Seth Roya joined in 2005 playing drums, then Seth left for family and Shawn came back in 2010. Erik left for Boston and Andrew Martin picked up the bass in early 2010. Andy left the band at the very end of 2011 and Jamie Hosley swooped in and has been holding down the bottom end to the present. Confused? The band is currently Stevens Blanchard (Vox / Guitar), Shawn Snyder (Drums) and Jamie Hosley (Bass).

The band won "Best Rock Trio" according to NH Magazine in 2011.

Always looking to build an audience an entertain, The Conniption Fits is a band that feeds an audience and consistently delivers a high energy, impacting show.
