Late Night Alibi Is:

Ronny Lee Duncan, vocals
Classically trained, Ronny hails from a musical family and has been singing and performing since the age of 3.  He spent his childhood singing in church and school choirs, voice lessons and three years in The Ohio State Symphonic Choir allowed him to develop a strong high tenor range.

 
An audition with a local band, Mercenary—which spawned world renowned music producer Ron Kenan—allowed him to gain experience and stage presence.
 
Ronny’s major vocal influences are Burton Cummings, Lou Gramm, Steve Perry, and Robert Plant.  His band influences are The Beatles, Genesis, Styx and Journey. His ability to change the tone, vibrato, and having a quality falsetto makes him a very versatile singer.
 
He has performed more than 3000 shows from outdoor concerts, large county fairs, and bars throughout the Midwest, with the bands, Avalanche and The Choosy Muthas.
  
Ronny is a referee for many different sports, but he gets the most enjoyment when he is asked to ref the annual “Punkin Chunkin” games in Delaware.
 

Marty Whalen – Bass & vocals
A local musician for 37 years, Marty cut his rock and roll teeth at the Sugar Shack back in 1979, and has also played at the Columbus Agora/Newport and the Akron Agora.

His greatest music influences are:  Rock, Power Pop, R & B, Funk and Blues.
 
Marty has performed in many high profile local bands, most notably The Frank Harrison Group & The Straits. 
 
He has shared the stage with over 20 national acts including rock legends, Robin Trower, Foghat and Nazareth and blues greats, Johnny Winter, Robert Cray and Lonnie Brooks.
 
Don’t let his cool, quiet, demeanor fool you, Marty has a Cheap Trick tramp stamp.


















 

Don McClincy – keyboard, guitar, vocals
Don McClincy began playing keyboards professionally in the late 1970's primarily in the central Ohio area.  Some of his more notable projects include The Quick Band, Sybil, The Chain, Second Hand News, and the Fleetwood Mac tribute band Enchanted. 
 
Don lists an eclectic group of artists as influential to his style.  These include Steve Walsh (Kansas), Dennis DeYoung (Styx), Rick Wakeman (Yes), Keith Emerson (Emerson, Lake, and Palmer), Freddie Mercury (Queen), Jon Lord (Deep Purple), and Elton John.
 
You might find Don spending his spare time playing competitive badminton.   On the circuit, they call him “The Shuttlecocksman”.

















 

Rand Hollobaugh - Drums & Vocals
Formally trained from the age of 10, Rand enjoyed playing drums in various school bands throughout Jr High and High School. He grew up listening to the rock music of the day and was captivated from the start.


“Ever since I heard the music of Kiss and BTO in the 70’s, I was hooked on rock 'n' roll. Moving on to Journey, Styx, Boston and Rush, took me to another place and cemented my love for melodic rock music. The combination of heavy drums, bass and guitar mixed with a strong melody line just took me someplace that I've never quite come down from. What a great era for music!!”

At the age of 16, Rand placed ads in local newspapers looking for like-minded musicians and jammed with a number of them, which is where he came to meet Ronny Duncan. Rand, Ronny & Marty Whalen would eventually form a few bands over those years that would give them many years of live playing experience.

From there, Rand went on to hook up with a regional band, Hotshot, who would play the nightclub circuit of mainly Holiday Inns, Sheratons and various nightclubs throughout Ohio, Indiana, Michigan & Iowa, playing 4-5 sets a night, 6 to 7 nights a week!

In his off time, Rand enjoys spending time with his family, friends and writing and recording his own compositions in his studio.
