5 Rounds was formed with the intention of bringing a “roadhouse” sound to the Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin area, playing well known covers, while adding a few originals along the way. Bob Stojak, a skilled guitar virtuoso influenced by outlaw rockers like Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, was joined in late 2011 by experienced drummer Jeff Szarek. After a period of line-up changes, Kevin Anderson joined 5 Rounds in early 2013, bringing with him a smooth guitar sound and a wealth of experience and knowledge in Southern and outlaw rock. In 2016, enter the polished vocals and bass talents of Cindy Meister. Cindy’s melodic voice and pop influence has taken 5 Rounds to new and diverse places.
