The year was 1986; the city, New York. Schelly and Summach had just come off stage after opening for KISS at the Garden. It was a crazy time of easy cash and cheap thrills. Since meeting on tour as back-up flautists for Jethro Tull in the 70s, success had been their dream. But endless nights on the road had taken their toll. It was in the early-morning hours, after that KISS gig, eating runny eggs at a dive bar that burned down a week later, that Schelly and Summach set course for something more. ECDC was born.
EllisDon’s official unofficial band, the EllisDominators, was formed in 2016 for one reason – to rock.

The EllisDominators have embarked on their four date, 2019 World Tour with stops in London (…. Ontario), Toronto, Edmonton, Vancouver and Halifax.
the pretty dirt
The Pretty's Dirt's genre of music is best categorized as Rock with their strong back beat and guitar driven sound, but there is a raw gritty edge to their sound that infuses elements of punk, funk, and blues. Add some smooth vocals, melodic leads, and sweet back-up harmonies you have the band’s musical essence, their namesake- The Pretty Dirt. While they are predominantly a cover band they have been incorporating some quality originals into their repertoire. They have a rare band chemistry and positive energy that is highly contagious to their audiences making their live shows nothing but Good Times and Good Vibrations for all.
