The Colorado-based rock band BALANCED ROCK is named after the famous 900-ton natural red sandstone rock formation located in the scenic Garden of the Gods nature site in their hometown of Colorado Springs, CO.

Like the uniqueness and rarity that balanced rocks appear in nature shaped by the forces of nature windswept and the slow erosion of time, precariously perched seeming to defy gravity, likewise, the rock group BALANCED ROCK, is a one-of-a-kind musical force of nature.
