Jim Frattali

Lead Guitar & Vocals

Jim has been playing guitar for over 30 years and has been in several successful local acts from the 80s/90s metal band, Firestorm, to modern rock acts Smash Radio and Primed, to classic rock bands Bad Habits and Midnite Run. He's played more venues in and around Baltimore than he can remember. In the nineties Jim toured the East Coast with Firestorm as the band pursued a professional music path. But time has since passed and Jim is now content to be a weekend warrior playing in a serious act that allows him to fulfill his passions of playing electric guitar and entertaining others. Jim takes playing cover music very seriously and his approach is to emulate the guitar tone and style of the original artist's recording. Jim also appreciates all genres of music and his guitar style draws from numerous and diverse influences from classic rock gods like Eric Clapton, Keith Richards and David Gilmour to hard rock gunslingers like Eddie Van Halen, Glenn Tipton, and Angus Young. Jim has always been comfortable on stage and he has always enjoyed passing on the energy he derives from playing music to the audience. Jim just loves to rock!!!

Erik Kaniecki

Erik

Bassest, Vocals

Kaniecki started out playing rhythm guitar in his teens, becoming totally immersed in the 80’s metal scene. After serving his country and then wandering aimlessly for years (having four beautiful children in the process), he heard his higher calling to pick up the bass guitar and has never looked back.With influences ranging from Cliff Burton to John Paul Jones to James Jamison, his love of the low end and his classic, powerful sound make our newest addition to the band a perfect fit.

Eric Simball

Inspired by Greg Rolie, organ player and one of the founders of Santana, Greg Allman of the Allman Brothers, Jimmy Smith, Rick Wakeman of Yes, Keith Emerson, he fell in love with the mighty Hammond Organ. Although not willing to risk a hernia gigging with one of his 3 full size Hammond/Leslie rigs regularly, he plays the sounds on a modern Hammond portable.  He loves live performance and is happy to have found Midnite Run.
