Frank Patek

Frank is a wild guy! Not only is he extremely talented as a singer / songwriter, but he is also proficient in several different instruments including rhythm guitar, bass guitar, piano, and drums. But it's his singing that brings out the beast in him! Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he says he must have first become interested in music from his mother's womb because he doesn't remember a time he didn't have music in his heart and a song in his head. He began performing as soon as he could talk. He and his mother would sing together, entertaining themselves and anyone who happened to be around. His mother saw the skill in him, the potential, the desire -- and she nurtured it with her whole heart. Singing is his life. He gets so energized, puts so much of himself into it, and enjoys it so much. He takes his feedback from the audience and plays right into their hearts. Frank loves Inner Ally's mission of helping others and bettering the community. He assists people at his day job who have run into financial struggles, so Inner Ally is the perfect fit for him. Don't miss out on seeing Frank perform with Inner Ally. He'll be the guy belting out power vocals, wailing on the guitar, and dancing around the stage!

Kathy Patek

Kathy is the namesake of Inner Ally's popular track "Kathy's song!" Her husband, band front man Frank Patek, wrote the song for her on their 10th anniversary. She started her music career singing Elvis songs in her attic with her sister, pretending that a broom handle was a microphone! She also remembers singing "Leaving on a Jet Plane" on her swing set. Her grandparents were so enamored with her talents that they brought up a tape recorder from Kentucky to record her singing! Kathy has spent a lifetime in service to others, in both her career and in her personal life. She's served on church committees, has helped special needs children, and has acted as an Activitiy Director for the elderly. Kathy says helping others brings her great joy! Being a member of Inner Ally gives Kathy the perfect opportunity to combine the three great loves of her life: helping others, music, and her husband. She's a tremendous asset to the band — her on-stage energy is infectious and gets the audience on their feet at concerts. Kathy hopes that Inner Ally's fans experience the same joy at the band's concerts that she has while performing. Look for Kathy at upcoming Inner Ally events. She'll be the one onstage who never runs out of energy!

Steve Suess

Steve Suess has loved music since he grew ears, and his interest in playing guitar was driven by his enjoyment of hard rock music coupled with inspiration from a high school friend back in the ‘80s who played guitar very well and still loves to rock it. He played rhythm guitar in his early years with a few garage bands, and steadily progressed in his ability to sing and improvise on lead guitar by learning to “feel it”. He also has a wide vocal range, and just loves to sing and play with the goal of bringing joy and happiness to anyone who could use a little of both. Steve has experience singing tenor and playing bass guitar at church worship services. He enjoys serving and encouraging others and will gladly lend a helping hand. In addition to having played at various charitable events with two different bands, Steve has participated in serving the community through Red Cross volunteer events and the National Make a Difference Day. Steve loves to smile, and his smile is contagious. He is very proud of his two sons, Preston and Lewis. Although he suffered the painful loss of his wife (Colleen) to cancer in June of 2018, he takes comfort in knowing that she is now in a place where she can forget all about the concept of pain and suffering. He has learned some new things about himself since losing her and discovered a natural talent for cooking. Steve wants you to be encouraged by his uplifting attitude and his music. Don’t be surprised if he throws in an ‘80s hard rock-style guitar riff every so often. He really can’t resist it.
