Who Are We?

Appaloosa was formed in early 1971 with an original vision of a full vocal band with steady playing of songs during their performance all the while pleasing the crowd with their party atmosphere. The current line-up is Franco (James) Theodore on lead guitar, Joel Brengle on bass, Mike Flaherty (original member) on drums, Jack Gohagen lead vocalist and Chuck Ansell (original member) on keyboards. It's a good chance Appaloosa played your prom, school dance, CYO/Teen Center, social function, favorite night club, outdoor concerts and maybe even some of the readers' weddings over the years. Appaloosa takes pride in continuing to provide a first rate performance and being a strong party/dance band. Our vision stays intact and this group still kicks!
