Imagine Dragons is a Las Vegas based band. In 2008, lead singer Dan Reynolds met drummer Andrew Tolman at Brigham Young University where they were both students.
Reynolds and Tolman added Andrew Beck, Dave Lemke, and Aurora Florence to play guitar, bass, and piano for their band. Their name is an anagram for a phrase only known to members of the group, that Reynolds stated each member approved of.
Beck and Florence depart from the band’s line up that year. In 2009, Tolman recruited longtime high school friend Wayne Sermon, who had graduated from Berklee College of Music to play guitar.
The band garnered a large following in their hometown of Provo, Utah, before the members moved to Las Vegas, the hometown of Dan Reynolds, where the band recorded and released their first three EPs. They got their first big break when Train's frontman Pat Monahan fell sick just prior to the Bite of Las Vegas Festival 2009.
Tolman later recruited his wife, Brittany Tolman, to sing backup and play keys. Lemke left the band later on, leading Sermon to recruit another Berklee music student, Ben McKee, to join the band as their bassist and complete the lineup. Top 40
