Since it's creation in the summer of 2003, PONDER has released and sold thousands of their self-produced eleven-song CD and are now in pre-production working on the fifteen-song follow-up that is due out early 2008.

Since their sold-out CD release party at Sunset Station’s Club Madrid, they have played 94.1 FM's Bite of Las Vegas twice, Vegas' largest food and music festival with over 20,000 people in attendance both years. It featured Switchfoot, Macy Gray, Uncle Cracker, Franky Perez, Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, Five for Fighting, Bowling for Soup, and Blue Man Group.

Ponder has also shared the stage at the House of Blues and the Palms Resort with bands like Seven Nations, Berlin, the Bangles and Kip Winger and recently played the Cox Pavillion (8,500 capacity) with the Platters, the Scintas and celebrity host Robin Leach for a Clear Channel Benefit Concert to support Shade Tree!

Ponder’s one-two punch is delivered by the acoustic power duo songwriting team of award winning songwriter, producer, recording artist, college entertainer of the year, etc…SHAWN EIFERMAN and Atlantic recording artist, Warner publishing deal recipient, and the DUDE ON ALL THE TONY AND TINA’S WEDDING AT THE RIO BILLBOARDS…JOHN LOMBARDO! Together they have been compared to some of the greatest songwriting teams in music history like Simon and Garfunkel, Mick and Kieth, John and Paul, and even JON AND RITCHIE!!!

PONDER has received critical acclaim and been spun on KOMP 92.3 FM where they won Top 10 honors on their Best of 2003 with their song "AFTER ALL." The band has had a song placed in a SledX Extreme Snowboarding DVD, the film Siren and just recently chosen by Chris Hood of Robin Hood Films for multiple placements in his newest project, The Casino Job. The group continues to write and record material currently being shopped for TV and Film.

This is just a bullet point list of some things the band has done and plan on doing, but only represents the tip of the potential iceberg for this impressive songwriting team. They have a little bit of something for everybody with a tapestry of instrumental layers and songs that remind you of everything that is great about rock music. If the early stages of their careers are any indication, they will soon be a household name, a song stuck in your head and a group to be reckoned with for years to come.
