    American Hi-Fi was formed in Boston Mass. in 1998. Stacy Jones was in many other bands (Letters to cleo, Verica Salt) as a drummer beforehand. Stacy taught himself to play the guitar in the back of the tour bus, using just a Mel Bay's guitar book. After the Verica Salt tour, Stacy formed his own band with three of his friends, Brian Nolan, Jamie Arentzen and Drew Parsons. they were in other bands but they sat around, drink Beer and play Cheap trick covers.

    In the Summer, Stacy headed to Maui to help record Nina Gordan's debut record with producer Bob Rock. while he was there, he told Bob Rock about his band handed out a few demos. Mr. Rock was interested and had the band fly to Maui to record an Album. They played at local Bars in Maui for seven months, during that time, their band was called "BMX Girl" but it later was changed to American Hi-Fi.

    The Album "American Hi-Fi" hit stores in Febuary 2001 (Labeled by Island Records), The first single "Flavor of the Weak" became a huge hit and the song flooded the radios throughout the summer. the Album was successful and they toured the world.

    Their second album "The Art of Losing", ditched the old school rock style and went with producer "Nick Laundry". The album was more of a Punk rock meets College rock days kind of style. Their first single "The Art of Losing" was a Semi-hit but never became a hit like "Flavor of the Weak". The Album was not successful and the band was dropped by Island Records during their European Tour.

    In the Summer of 2004, American Hi-Fi was label-less and was looking to change up the style of the band. The band headed to LA California to work on their new album with Singer/producer "Butch Walker". The album "Hearts on Parade" was released in Japan that summer and American Hi-Fi Joined Butch Walker to a successful tour called "The Clash of the Heavyweights". The Hi-Fi boys toured for a year and a half. In 2005 AHF were signed by Maverick Records and released their "Hearts on Parade" album in the U.S. on April 13th 2005.

    Their third Album was more successful then "The Art of Losing". On March 2006, American Hi-Fi released "The rescue" as a single and was picked up by Playtone Records for the Movie "Return of Superman", the single was not only on the Soundtrack but the feature single of the movie. The single made the top 100 singles on the Radio for a Season.

    The boys then took on other roles in side projects, producing and staying home with the family. Stacy Jones and his long-time Girlfriend got married in September of 2006. In the spring of 2006, the band posted on their website that the band will be going back into the Studio in Late Fall and doing some shows in the summer. Since then they have signed with Original sound and have finished the recording of their new album 'Keep it like a secret'. They are finalising the playlist in order to release it in the spring of 2009.
