The Four Hundred is an American indie rock band formed in 2006 in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

History

After the breakup of their previous band, Brendan Benham and Dan Mena discussed the idea of forming a new band with Shae Lappen. Around the same time that Lappen was approached about the idea, Cody Olson approached him about forming a band with a drummer he had been playing with, Ed Zuehlke. Consequently, The Four Hundred was born with Lappen filling in on lead vocals and guitar, Benham on guitar and synthesizer, Mena on bass, Olson on guitar and Zuehlke on drums.

In 2006, The Four Hundred had a fruitful year, as they recorded their Napoleonic EP in Milwaukee at Bobby Peru's Recording Studio with Shane Olivo. Also, The Four Hundred opened for national acts such as The Romantics, The Melismatics, The New Loud, Dr. Dog and The Black Keys. They headlined many shows of their own, and played two music festivals, Summerpalooza [http://www.summerpalooza.net/index.html] and Metrojam. [http://metrojam.org]

The Four Hundred disbanded in early 2008.
