Jenel Notarangeli
Jenel is a young up and coming female vocalist. A vocally trained singer open to all types of songs, ranging from the 1960's to modern songs in the charts today, Jenel will impress.

Mickey Disabato Electric Guitar, Vocals
Mickey started playing drum as a young teenager. His father played the drums with a basic 5 -piece as a hobbyist. Naturally Mickey liked beating the drums and making noise. He found another 5-piece and created a 10-piece drum kit. While playing the drums in a teenage rock band, his OLDER brother Jeff was learning guitar. After some time, Jeff decided he also wanted to play drums. Mickey eventually lost interest in drums and pursued music in other ways. Later, in his late twenties, he came back to the rock music scene and decided to learn to play guitar. He purchased a Les Paul Studio and Marshall half-stack (which he still owns today). He's been hooked ever since. Mickey played in a Naperville based band named Old Man Jenkins in 2008 or so for a few years until that fell apart. He then started Sinister Finch with 2 members from Old Man Jenkins. Steve Mertes and Jeff DIsabato. Mickey's brother Jeff came up with the name Sinister Finch, Mickey then came up with the logo and image of the band.

Steve Pickens Bass, Vocals
Steve has been playing bass guitar since a teenager around the South and West Suburbs of Chicago in previous bands such as Crisis, Annabelle Lee and Harlows Ghost. Influences include Aerosmyth, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Kiss and anyone brave enough to pick up the bass guitar.
