The Candy Apple Band combines a talented group of musicians with a wide range of musical backgrounds which allows us to bring a show with something for each generation to enjoy.
One of the only bands found now-a-days with the real deal; I'm talking about Jim Dryden who's rugged good looks and age defying style adds soul to the stage while playing the Hammond B3 with his 9 fingers!
Did I say 9 fingers?......That brings me to Johnny Heath, our Bass player and you guessed it! He also only has 9 fingers (WOW!) but that doesn't stop him as he plays and also sings many of the Classic Rock and Country hits from artists such as The Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Dylan, Bill Withers, B.B. King and more.
He plays along side our drummer, Ricky Dryden, who also is a former member from Night Train. Ricky's playing carries the beat for the night on stage and in the heart of all the ladies!
Our Golden Apple, Frank Frombach, does it all! He plays lead guitar, he sings Classic Rock tunes from artists such as Grand Funk Railroad, Otis Redding, The Troggs and more. Frank Frombach's Famous Fingers Find Fun (hee hee) as he displays his mastery of the Slide Guitar which led to his invention of custom made Finger Slides. While playing lead, slide and singing all at once, he is nothing less than Bad To The Bone!
Our Eye Candy, Linda Dryden, carries the backup vocal for all songs and her beauty adds shine to the stage, making it hard to turn away.
Of course with Gina Dryden on stage, you won't want to turn away. Her vocal range and singing style combines with that charisma needed to perform songs as made famous by Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Thelma Houston and Wilson Pickett just to name a few.
Come and hang out with us when you're wanting to let your hair down and have some fun. Or we can bring the fun to you! Our professional sound is equip enough to play the biggest shows you may have down to the smaller, more intimate environments.
So there you have it! The next time your friend says, “Hey, do you know any good bands around?” you can reply, “Why yes. Yes I do!” after all, now you know us!
We Are The Candy Apple Band!
