About The Band




The Brief History

Pat McMichael (drums) and John Ianni (keyboards) met at an audition for a Beach Boys tribute band in Dayton, Ohio. The tribute band was not a love connection for either of them but Pat called John the following day to see if he wanted to start a band. Although John was playing regular solo gigs, he hit it off with Pat and was blown away by his musicianship.

After a few months of auditioning other musicians, Pat tracked down the number for two members of the successful band TZ5 - Mike Osborne (bass) and Jamie Graham (vocals). Luckily for John and Pat, TZ5 had recently disbanded so the two were looking for the right new band. It turned out their talent and personalities were a match. Several players auditioned for the guitar role before Dante - on one of his solo gigs - met John Varrasso who provided great lead guitar for over 8 years.

Johnny V left the band in 2011 due to health issues and was replaced by the legendary guitarist/vocalist Terry Walters who played and toured with Pat in the band Flyweil. Also in 2011, Ray "Ray Rey" Reynolds started playing regularly adding outstanding saxophone, percussion and vocal parts. Ray typically plays the larger venues but is available to play smaller events as well.

The saga continues...

Michael Q

Michael "Q" Osborne - Bass Guitar/Vocals/Drums/Harmonica

Mike has been playing professionally for almost 30 years. In that time he has toured nationally with the show group "Tranzition", played with Cincinnati & Dayton area dance bands and the 50's / 60's revue "TZ5". In addition, Mike has worked in many area theater pit orchestras, a jazz trio and was a percussionist with the Middletown Symphony Orchestra. "Q" enjoys the energy of live performance and looks forward to getting a call home from the mothership.

Dan Bartosik - Lead Guitar/Drums

Dan began his musical career back in high school playing drums with the local area rock band Toyz. In later years, he provided the backbeat for The Termites, covering hundreds of tunes from rock ‘n roll’s golden era, the 1960’s and 1970’s. Not limited to the sticks and skins, he has also played lead guitar with the Dayton area bands High Five! and All Jacked Up. In 2019, Dan joined forces with 24 Seven.



Patrick McMichael - Drums/Vocals

Pat is known for playing with the band Flyweil who was voted #1 band in California by a Wrangler Jeans contest in which 500 bands competed. Flyweil left the Dayton area to tour the US and ended up in California where they played the west coast, Las Vegas, Japan, and Alaska. They were also sponsored by Budweiser for 3 years who flew them to Austin, Texas where they played on TV with Willie Nelson, Edgar Winter and Leon Russell. Pat has also toured with the Vogues - a popular vocal group with hits in the 60's. Pat lays down a strong beat that will have you dancing all night long.

John "Dante" Ianni - Keyboards/Vocals/Guitar/Harmonica

In addition to playing keyboards/vocals/guitar for 24seven, John plays regularly solo and is in-demand as a session player. With numerous successful band credits - including rock, country, jazz, funk and wedding receptions - and four years of classical piano and music theory at Wittenberg University, John feels at home on the keys and behind a mic. Be sure to keep your eyes on Dante because he might just do one his famous keyboard handstands at a 24Seven show!



Randy Eldred - Sound at larger venues

On top of being one of the best people to work with, Randy is definitely at the top of live sound in Dayton, Ohio. In addition to running sound for the larger venues that 24 Seven plays, Randy has run sound for national acts like Kenny Loggins, Alan Parsons, Kansas and Asia, as well as local bands The Hathaways and 5 Story Plung. He has outstanding medium to large-venue equipment that somehow he can unload and setup himself - this is something you have to see to believe!
