RIPPIN is an American rock band originally formed in 1997. The band was formed by former PuzzleView members Jeff Rippin, Paul Dorato and Jerry Heeschen.
RIPPIN released its first self titled CD in 1998. Song “Anytime Anywhere” received some national commercial airplay. RIPPIN then released a second CD in 2001 (RIPPIN II). On their 2nd release, "In The Shadows", "Heartburn" and "Honey" also received n national airplay rotation. Bassist Jerry Heeschen was at a karaoke bar and heard Dave Muhoberac singing. Muhoberac was invited to sit in on a few songs and soon after became the lead vocalist. RIPPIN then recorded a 3rd CD called “Cant Get Over It”. Again the band received national commercial airplay with songs “Road Rage” and “Johnny”. These first 3 CDs were all recorded either in a basement or a garage. In an attempt to gain more attention, the band started to record the 4th CD as a higher quality, 3 song demo. During the recording, drummer Paul Dorato started having serious health issues. At this point the band brought in long time friend John Castignani to take over. This 3 song short demo CD was recorded in TikiTown Studios, produced by Scott Mathews. This demo CD helped the band finally land a deal being signed to Tate Music Group’s label. Now the excitement continues!
