Three talented musicians from Illinois combined their professional experience to create TEN96. Band owner Anthony Frank on guitar and back up vocals has performed with major entertainers throughout the country. Dennis Hirschauer on lead vocals returned to Illinois after touring the European circuit. Eddie Von on bass with his upside down left hand playing amazed Anthony at his first audition. Mike Ray on drums plays with such an intensity and style that Anthony knew he was right for TEN96. Each member has logged over 20,000 hours including studio, venues, study and tutoring rendering them experts by music industry standards. While their main focus is alternative rock, with original songs written by Anthony, their talents range from classic rock to jazz and blues.
TEN96 is a four member band from Chicago playing all original rock.
