Update: 6/19/20 - Celebrating Miles Yet To Go hitting 102K plays! Thank you so much!
Rough Innocence, originally formed in 1980’s by Dale Duffy, Rick Risberg, Joe Tyson & Aubrey. Always an original band adding covers to set lists taking them to the next level by “Rough Inno-cizing" them!
The members except for Aubrey were jamming a lot in Joe Tyson's garage up in Columbia, Pennsylvania. Edward Gerlach was invited to come and jam and I, Deborah R Force-Shy-Gerlach-Culver came along with. They had an awesome sound and Kelly Ryan had just come back from New York playing with a band up there that broke up. We asked the guys if we could bring her along the they agreed, and she did. Rough Innocence was reformed with Kelly Ryan's killer vocals and her brother Edward Gerlach as rhythm guitarist and they began birthing new songs with Kelly Ryan and Deborah R Force-Shy-Gerlach-Culver writing lyrics and melodies.
Late 1980's was a magical time of the hair bands and starry-eyed dreams of making it big. We had recorded our own CD and a following calling local radio stations, but they could not play as we were not signed, much to the chagrin of the DJs who wished like heck they could play us. With an all original line up garnered 2nd place at the 1991/1992 York Fair's, Battle Of The Bands were Kix was the headline act. (York, PA). Each of the members are still doing music in some way, shape or form.
Peace, Love N Keep On Rockin'!
