The Sinclairs Band began in 1997 as a garage band; friends who got together for the simple joy of making music. There were no intentions of becoming a working band. After playing a couple of backyard get-togethers it was clear the band was on to something. Under urging from friends, the band began to book gigs and find success on the local scene. Much has changed over the years. What began as friends playing 60’s songs for kicks grew into a band known as a local staple providing good-time performances and leaving audiences with a show they fondly remember.
With numerous personnel changes over the years, the band has become a brotherhood, a fraternity if you will, making new friends and amazing musical memories for all involved; both the band and the audiences. Past and current members include Greg Bever, Ken Gloss, Rod Loomis, Dennis Beson, Ed Kerns, Chris Jarema, Jeff Ott, Rick Brown, Kris Schmitt, Jimmy Beschoner, Jeff Poirier, Andy Scott, Scott VanDell, Ken Marotzke, Dave Miller, Paul Hughes, and Tom Behmlander.
The Sinclairs Band’s humble beginnings have blossomed into a well-known band performing at many area clubs, countless weddings, car shows, corporate events, and outdoor festivals. The band has shared the stage with such notable names as Foghat, Gary Puckett, Herman’s Hermits, Dennis DeYoung of Styx, The Grass Roots, The Georgia Satellites, Great White, The Spin Doctors, Patty Smyth & Scandal, Blue Oyster Cult, and Eddie Money.
The Sinclairs Band focuses on good time hits of the 70’s, 80’s, 90's and beyond. Aimed at the dance floor, the band plays a mix of classic party rock, pop, and funk by such artists as The Doobie Brothers, AC/DC, Bryan Adams, INXS, The J. Geils Band, Earth, Wind & Fire, Bon Jovi and Tom Petty to name a few.
