The Four Postmen is a Los Angeles based rock group that consists of five band members. Featuring electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards, drums, bass, and an emphasis on three-part vocal harmony, their live show is highly energetic and theatrical, complete with non-stop comic banter between songs. Sometimes compared to Barenaked Ladies, [ [http://www.robkendt.com/Reviews/fourpostmen.htm Review of The Four Postmen: What the Hell Happened] ] GQ Magazine prefers to call them, "The Seinfeldesque Monkees."

They formed in 1992 and in 1996 were signed to a development deal with NBC Studios to create a TV show based on their group. The band has performed on NBC's "Friday Night Videos", FOX's "Futurama", MTV's "Undressed", and has composed original music for NBC's Thrillogy Series as well as several independent feature films. They have four full-length albums: "U.S. Male" (1993), "Looking For Grandpa" (1997), "Hit Record" (2001), and "What The Hell Happened" (2004).

Members

Ken Weiler - "Postman #1" - Vocals/Electric Guitar

How did Ken become Postman #1? Because he's the best, right? He's the top-dog, big banana, numero uno! Or is it because he's the smallest? He's really not small. He's 5'10" and a half! That's almost 5'11" which is almost 6 feet. And that's tall. Ken's mother was born in Belgium. His father was born in the Bronx. Ken was conceived in Louisville, Kentucky but born in Los Angeles, California. When Ken was a boy, his parents took him to see folk music concerts. When he was a teenager he saw Black Sabbath and AC/DC. When he was an adult he saw a porno. Any more questions? His rock 'n' roll guitar heroes range from Eddie Van Halen and Angus Young to Larry Carlton and Eric Clapton. Ken writes adult-themed comedy songs and you'll see him doing solo gigs at comedy clubs and brothels.

Favorite number: One

Favorite actress: Amy Van Horne

Favorite phrase: "Who's your daddy?"

Matt Kaminsky - "Postman #2" - Vocals/Keyboards

Matt married actress Dotty Coloroso on June 18, 1994. He and his wife have two children: Madison (a girl) and Connor (a boy). In addition to playing with the Four Postmen, Matt is an actor. He's been on television, film, and has voiced many radio commercials, CD ROMs, and occasional cartoon characters. If you're interested in what he's done you can view his credits on the [http://imdb.com/name/nm0436751/ Internet Movie Database] .

tefan Marks - "Postman #3" - Vocals/Acoustic Guitar

Not Steven or Stephan or Stephen or anything with a "PH". It's S-T-E-F-A-N. "F". It's not pronounced "Ste-FAWN". It's pronounced "Steffin". It's not spelled S-t-e-f-f-i-n, but it is pronounced that way. His "real" job is voice-over work for television and radio commercials, CD ROM games and the occasional animation gig. In his "free" time he writes and directs plays. His long-term goal is to write and direct films. Musical influences: Uh... talk radio?

Geoff Dunbar - "Postman #4" - Drums

Professional studio drummer, composer, college professor and recording engineer. Does amazing tricks while playing his drums. Has a vast collection of vintage drums.

Brett Pearsons - "Postman #5" - Bass

If he wasn't playing bass or acting or writing, he'd either be a toy maker or a mortician. He once drove with a cat inside his SUV engine from North Hollywood to Santa Monica.

Favorite movies: "The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover"; "Delicatessen"; "Heavenly Creatures"; "American Beauty"; "Se7en"; "Midnight Run"; "The Exorcist".
