In 1989, a promoter located in Milwaukee, WI reached out to five unconnected regional gunslinger musician/vocalists with the concept of creating an exceptional  AOR/ROCK band with a format that few bands could emulate. After meeting each other, “Jukebox Heroes” took the stage “literally” five weeks later to an oversold house at Starz on 100 in Milwaukee with a waiting line out the door.

The tour began, and soon “JBH” was in demand throughout the Midwestern US. The schedule had the group sharing the stage with the likes of 38 Special, Starship, Georgia Satellites, Styx, Robert Palmer, Kansas, REO, The Guess Who, Survivor, The Turtles, Marshall Tucker Band and ELO, some on multiple occasions. The group headlined a stage at Summerfest, the largest music festival in the US located in Milwaukee, on multiple occasions drawing thousands of fans.

Jukebox Heroes, the self titled CD, was released in 1992. The remastered version was done by Justin Perkins at “Mystery Room Mastering”. Six bonus tracks are on the CD version, three by “Floppy Disc” and three by “Knee Deep” are two of Kalista’s previous projects. “In Each Others Eyes” features Kalista along with “Keedy” (Arista Records).

Jukebox Heroes, the self titled CD is a unique combination of stellar musicianship, vocals and harmony arrangements in an AOR/Pop Rock genre.

Line-up: Dennis Panneck - guitar & vocals; Tony Roland - guitar, flute & vocals; Steve Marino - keyboards & vocals; Jim Praefke – bass & vocals; Ron Kalista - drums & vocals
