Average Rating:



Hometown: Denver, CO (USA)


The Gamits were a pop–punk band from Denver, Colorado comprised in their later years of primary songwriter Chris Fogal along with Scott Swarers and Jason Walker. The band released a number of records through Suburban Home, remaining slightly below the radar throughout their career and remaining mostly immune to the fast changing trends of mainstream pop–punk acts. The Gamits played their final show in late 2004.
