Five For Fighting Fan Central
A fan site dedicated to spreading the word and celebrating the music of John Ondrasik, the greatest singer-songwriter of our time
Attention Five For Fighting fans! Due to circumstances beyond my control...but, I knew it was coming...this site soon will cease to exist. BUT, that's because I'll be working on a BRAND NEW Five For Fighting Fan Central website! You'll still be able to see this site, but on August 4th, it will no longer be updated. During the construction of the new site, if anything important in Five For Fighting land pops up, you'll read about it at the Five For Fighting Fan Central MySpace page or my blog. I'm confident the new site will be even better and with luck...and hard work...it should be up and running next year, if not sooner! Stay tuned...
It's always nice when people identify with John's poignant and meaningful songs. NASA paid him the ultimate compliment by using the Five For Fighting tune World to honor the men and women who work at the International Space Station. Check it out!
Things are pretty slow in Five For Fighting land, but there's always room for a little excitement! For those lucky enough to live close...or are willing to travel...John is doing a series of shows in July and August! Check out my TOUR page for the concert list. And, for an extra special treat, I posted an interview I did with John last November. I FINALLY got around to transcribing it, but I think you'll agree it was worth the wait!

On February 20, John had the pleasure of performing before the 2011 NHL Heritage Classic hockey game in Calgary, AB. Braving the sub-zero temperatures...yes, they held the game OUTSIDE...John and the band played Chances. Watch the video of their performance and also an interview that John did with NHL Live the night before.
Here's something for those Five For Fighting fans who want all of John's hit songs in one convenient package. Playlist: The Very Best of Five For Fighting CD is now available and features all the singles...including Bella's Birthday Cake...in addition to a couple of cool bonus tunes.

As his now annual gift to the troops and their families, John has produced...with the help of a LOT of generous friends...CD For The Troops IV! This collection of music is available for FREE to all active military personnel, veterans and their families with a valid military ID at AAFES. It's his way of thanking the troops for their service and keeping us safe!
On December 3, John made a repeat visit to the Tony Bruno Show. They talked about sports and John's latest album. Catch the podcast here.
For all you hockey fans, on December 2, John appeared on the Toronto radio show, A Foot In The Crease. He talked about...what else, hockey...especially his beloved L.A. Kings! You can listen to the interview here.
