On Lead Vocals, a totally tubular dude who has performed in some mint places around the country. He's played with some seriously righteous musicians from bands like Trans Siberian Orchestra, Prince, and Sly and the Family Stone. Locally, he's hung with a few bands, including Perfect World and Smalltown.
Matt has been playing locally in original and cover bands since 1993. Some of the original projects include Slow Joe Crow, Richard IV Band and Scattered Ink. On the cover scene he has had the pleasure of playing in bands such as The Brunt, Polluted Moon and Bangarang. As the owner of Quistorf Guitar 101, and a very yellow Ibanez, Matt has been teaching guitar professionally for the last twenty two years. Some of his favorite guitarists include the likes of Paul Gilbert, Ty Tabor, Vernon Reid and John Petrucci. On a musical level Matt enjoys listening to a wide range of artists from The Beatles to Johnny Cash.
Outside of bands and teaching Matt enjoys playing drums as well as online games such as Star Wars The Old Republic. Being an avid computer nut in a family of gamers is a fantastic scapegoat for any songs he may mess up while in Hall Pass.
Rick is the founding member of Hall Pass 80's. Starting with a few guys who never met before, and an idea to put together a high-quality 80's experience, Rick forged the path to the 80's Revolution in Rochester! Rick played drums for local legends, Catch 22, for over 13 years. Before that, he toured with an original band based out of Pittsburgh.
Vic is one of the very first members of the Hall Pass 80's concept. Originally from Syracuse, NY, Vic comes from a long musical background having started to play piano by ear not too long after learning to walk. Vic played in bands through the 80's and in a few cases, opened up for bands who's songs Hall Pass 80's covers today. After getting a degree in Music Industry, concentrating on Electronic Music Composition from Syracuse University, Vic quickly turned his technical skills into a career in the Information Technology industry. Luckily, he never gave up the piano keys for the computer keys.
Abe is the newest member of the Hall Pass 80's family. Originally from the Rochester area, he has moved around the Southeast with his wife until deciding to come back home. While down south, Abe kept his talents honed by playing in bands in the Chattanooga and Nashville area. We are very glad Abe came home.
