A little history…..
In 1989, shortly after graduation from Lyons Township High School in La Grange, Illinois Dick Ourada called old friend Russ Rydin and asked him to come by and jam. Upon discovering that they had nothing better to do and very little talent, they enlisted Dick’s brother Randy to play drums and started The Dick Ourada Band. Several years and dozens of bandmates later the D.O.B. decided to make a fresh start. In October 1996 the boys persuaded Russ’ brother Ron to play one show with them at “Manions” in Willow springs, Illinois.
That show on May 31, 1997 was so magical that Ron Rydin never left the group. Somewhere along the road that summer the D.O.B. picked up second drummer John Kienzle, when one evening he just appeared on stage.
Years later they find themselves positioned as “The Greatest Band In The Western Suburbs Of Chicago”. With over 300 songs performed live that include such treasures as “Feel The Mustache” and “The Ballad Of Chris P. Licks” to classics like “Who Is This Guy” and “The Dave Rule Blues”, this band never quits. Their 3-hour shows are rockin’ with a splash of theatrics, and they always leave their faithful fans “The Dickheads” wanting more Dick. If you think this is just another band made up of idiots, you’re on the right track.
