TWENTY6HUNDRED is a Canadian rock band formed in early 2006 by Michael Atkinson (former front man of popular 90’s bands: ‘Another Fine Mess’ and ‘Sneaky Preacher‘). Although a solo project was the original intention, Michael recruited former ‘Sneaky Preacher’ band-mates Wendel Shank on guitar, and Randy Nolson on drums in an attempt to rekindle some of the performance magic of previous collaborations. Jim Burdon was soon enlisted to play bass. Traditionally a guitarist, Jim brought an exciting flare and energy to the rhythm section while adopting this different role. With the band members in place, the name TWENTY6HUNDRED was chosen as a tribute to an icon from an era that significantly influenced each of the band members in life and music.
