Biography

Tickets went on sale at 10 am. At 5 am, Tom Brown was first in line. Soon after, Todd arrived and was second in line. The line was fore the Jerry Garcia Band, Halloween 1994. The two started chatting about past shows, the state of the Dead scene, and the possibility of the two guitar players getting together to have fun and jam. Thus was borne a series of friendships culminating into Midnight Rain.
Tom (lead and rhythm guitar, vocals) and Todd (lead and rhythm guitar, vocals) started getting together on a regular basis. Soon thereafter the two were temporarily joined by several local area veteran musicians and soon began hitting the northern Jersey club scene playing the music of the Grateful Dead and other San Francisco acts. Original tunes were often slipped into the extended set lists.
Midnight Rain quickly gained popularity by playing the north Jersey club scene; such places include Images in Pearl River, NY and Hobson�s Choice in Hoboken, NJ. Some gigs included opening for RCA recording artists From Good Homes, and making new friend Buddy Cage [formerly of The New Riders of the Purple Sage] who would sit in on pedal steel guitar.
Midnight Rain went on to play for the cable television program �Tom Sullivan Show�, and received front page coverage from the Dateline News Journal. They also played for many the REX Foundation, the NJ Veterans Society and the Earth Day/Organic Farming benefit.
Midnight Rain took a short break and now have some new members; Matt Michura on drums, Joe McKenna on bass and Kelly Smith on organ and piano. They welcome newest member, vocalist Jenn Lepre. Midnight Rain currently in the studio working on their sophmore album.
