The details

Who are these guys? Read about the members of Ghost Ryder and see where they have been. And where they are planning to go!

Mario is one of the best known guitar players and vocalists in the Chicago area. Once the lead guitarist for Madfox, a national touring band in the late 70's, Mario has been playing in various high-end bands and producing music for years. His smokin' blues and hard-rockin' leads are a perfect match for Ghost Ryder's tight country sound. His vast experience and playing technique are the reasons for his many tasty licks. Mario runs his own recording studio in Elgin, IL, and works with a wide range of musical acts, producing and guiding them along the way.
Kyle's roots are firmly planted in a one-stop-sign town in South Central Illinois. Being born into a family of farmers and musicians made country music a natural fit. He started to sing as soon as he could talk and has been entertaining the hearts of many with his talent ever since. Kyle is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and a small business owner. He brings a true authentic country sound to every stage he performs on.
Garry is the engine behind Ghost Ryder. He sets the pace and keeps the band on track. He is also the one to talk with if you want to book the band. As one of the best drummers in the Midwest, he also uses his skills that he picked up working at Slingerland in the 80's building kits for the big boys. If you come to see Ghost Ryder, check out his custom-made drum kit from Chicago Drum. As an endorser, Garry helps this new company bring to market a new series of old-school Slingerland-emulated drums. Since Garry and Chicago Drum owner Jim Moritz both worked at Slingerland, I'd say they know what they are doing.
Robert is another veteran of the Chicago rock/music scene, playing with many bands over the years including the wild years with Mario Massi in Madfox. His years of experience show through his kiler chops and fantastic musical attitude. A well-respected figure in the Chicago music scene, Robert is fun to play with and a solid msuician. Robert also plays guitar and bass, and has owned his own video company for over 20 years.
Chris has been playing bass since the late seventies. And when he locks up with Garry, it's a about as tight as a band can get. That's because he has been playing with Garry since the 80's.
