Members Chuck Potashner

teamAWESOME! is an electropop band with twee sensibilities based in Boulder, Colorado. They are known for their energetic stage presence, which involves props, lightly choreographed dances and audience participation.[1] Their songs tend to have upbeat, childish themes, such as slides, pirates, hand-holding, and rocket ships. teamAWESOME! has been described as "pure, sloppy, fun '00s bedroom pop"[2] and is self-described as "a retro band from the future."[3]

The band originated in 2005 with two members, frontman and primary songwriter. Potashner's songs have been characterized as "whimsical" and "richly imagined."[4] In late 2005, the band released their first CD, Greatest Hits! Vol 1! on Still Soft Recordings, a DIY record label in Denver, Colorado.[5] The project was partially funded by winnings from placing first at the University of Colorado Battle of the Bands 2005. They have completed four tours of the western United States, preferring to play shows that are all-ages and/or in DIY spaces.

Throughout their shows and tours, teamAWESOME! played with The Presidents of the United States of America, Girl Talk, Health, An Albatross, Gravy Train!!!!, Matt & Kim, Tally Hall, Thunderbirds Are Now!, Aqueduct, Dressy Bessy, Mount Eerie and others.
