Forty Years of College was founded in late 1994 when college band mates Dr. David Larson (keyboard, guitar & vocals) and Mike Stiver (lead vocals & bass guitar) connected with Dr. Roy Goode (lead guitar, bass guitar & lead vocals), Dr. Tony Sanders (guitar, bass guitar & vocals) and Dr. Steve Baker (drums) to form a new musical group in Columbus.

Mike is not a doctor, but he does have a graduate degree. So, they named the new group 40 Years of College, reflecting five members times eight years of education each.

Dr. Drew Robertson (conga drums, percussion & vocals) joined shortly thereafter, actually giving the band more like 48 combined years of college.

Dr Steve Baker had to leave the band in the Summer of 2011 due to a serious neurological disorder. To fill the void, college teacher Kevin Welsh has joined the band on drums and vocals. Like Mike, Kevin is not a doctor, but he does bring 9+ years of college to the total, so the number of years of college per member did not decrease.

The latest addition to the band is a very talented bass player, Adam Goode. He is a Music Performance major at Indiana State University, and has lowered the average age of the band members considerably. And though he may slightly bring down the average of college years per band member, he more than makes up for it with his abilities on the bass.

They practice weekly and love to play for listeners who enjoy the classic rock of the sixties and seventies.
