Biography

Instant Replay covers a great mix of new and old favorites and we put our own twist on the songs. The band has been together for over three years. We maintain the original flavor or essence of the tunes but present them with our own personal touch. We play songs that people recognize, but that often don’t receive much radio play any more. We put a snappy spin on the songs the Instant Replay way. The band consists of five members:

Carol Cain has had a passion for singing and performing which emerged at an early age. Her influences range from inspirational, country, torch, and of course, rock and roll. Carol performs at many diverse venues ranging from weddings, clubs, musical productions, traditional gatherings and is most proud of performing the National Anthem before a Cleveland Indians game. It is evident in Carol’s singing that Sheryl Crow, Chrissie Hynde and Linda Ronstadt are strong influences in her singing style. The passion and enthusiasm that is evident in our live performances is reflected in our newest recordings. “The enjoyment I experience performing with such dedicated and talented musicians, Craig, Ed, Mike, and Rob, is a privilege and honor that is truly treasured by me, and I’m sure appreciated by the audience. Enjoy the show!”

Ed Boggs began playing guitar at age 15. He has been in several bands over the years since then, including an Italian Rock-and-Roll band and an Italian Folk trio in Italy. Other bands have included: “I Passeri” (The Sparrows in Italian), Ocean Rose, Timepiece, Feelin' Alright, and Instant Replay, of which he is a "founding father." In all of the bands, Ed played rhythm and lead guitar, did some lead vocal work, but prefers singing backup vocals. He spent a summer in Spain living with the Gypsies and learning Flamenco Guitar and was taught Bluegrass Banjo by his uncle, who played on the radio in W. Virginia with Flat and Scruggs. Key musical influences include: Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Eagles, Dead, Doobies, Byrds, Janice Joplin, Doors, Jose Feliciano, Santana, Ronstadt, Cars, James Gang (Joe Walsh) and Police (Sting).

Mike Fallucco started playing Bass in 1983. He joined his first band in 1984 called “American Classic”. The band consisted of Mike’s one cousin who played drums, and two other cousins who played lead and rhythm guitar. They played 50’s, 60’s and 70’s music, since this is what the bars were looking to hire. American Classic remained together until around 1999. Mike states I bounced around with other projects until I was lucky enough to find just the right group of performers: Instant Replay. Mike’s influences revolve around the Beatles, CCR, Chuck Berry, Elvis and Lynyrd Skynyrd. These influences have not changed much during the years, and this is a good thing.

Rob McCarty studied guitar for several years under George Bachmann, now professor of classical guitar at the Hugh A. Glauser School of Music, Kent State University. He formed his first Rock-and-Roll band in grade school, played guitar for his high school stage band, and returned to Rock-and-Roll bands in college. He also performed Irish music with Irene Uhalley and the Irishmen for five years. Rob helped to form Instant Replay from the pieces of an earlier band. Rob considers the Beatles, Gram Parsons, the Everly Brothers, the Beach Boys, Devo, the Pretenders, and the Byrds as his most influential musicians.

Craig Wallick has been playing drums and percussion since the age of 12. He has been in five bands over the past 20 years. He too is one of the “founding fathers” of Instant Replay. He plays jazz, blues, and rock, to originals. Craig’s influences are the Beatles, Eagles, and Joe Walsh. He is the cousin of NE Ohio native drummer, Joe Vitale.
