Ugly Rumor is a high-energy Classic Rock and Roll Cover Band consisting of experienced musicians from all walks of life who have experienced all types of performance venues and musical styles. With more than 100 combined years of musical experience, each band member has developed their craft with a multitude of musicians and honed their skills around good old American rock & roll that cooks. Together we produce a synergy of sound that provides a dynamic, danceable and thoroughly enjoyable rock and roll experience that unlocks memories from the past. Our gutsy vocals and musical wizardry create a high-energy driving force that generates excitement and audience participation.

In addition to plain just having fun, we are available for weddings, private parties, community events, jailbreaks, interventions and any other event you might be hosting.

Rob Knorr
(Guitar and Vocals) Rob (Chicago, IL) is the founder of Ugly Rumor and has been playing guitar for 40+ years. He has played in various bands (High Noon Saloon, the Rejects) with major influences from early rock & roll such as Chuck Berry to the melodic solos of Terry Kath of Chicago to the hard driving rock of Alvin Lee.

Tim Murphy
(Lead Vocals) Tim (Detroit, MI) has been singing since birth. There is an obvious Motown influence in Tim's singing with major vocal inspiration from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and of course, Bob Seger. A few other vocal icons of influence include David Bowie, Elvis Presley, Steve Tyler and Frank Sinatra. Tim has extensive formal vocal training in classical and a capella styles. He has been an Ugly since 2006.

Bob Dias
(Drums & Vocals) Bob (Los Angeles, CA) was first introduced to a drum set by playing along to Bad Company and Deep Purples "Made in Japan", though his first gig as a teen was as the drummer for his high school music instructors 40-piece adult big band. His influences range from the big band era of Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa and Louie Bellson, to rock drummers such as Ringo Starr, Charlie Watts, Keith Moon, John Bonham, Ian Paice, Neil Peart and Phil Ehart. Bob is just as at home backing a 40-piece big band as he is driving a blues trio or as the engine that powers the good old fashion rock & roll of Ugly Rumor.

Wayne Lajoie
(Keyboards, Sax, Guitar and Vocals) As our token Canadian (actually, Orange County, CA), Wayne's great keyboard work and very sexy saxophone sounds add a special dimension to the sound of Ugly Rumor that cannot be overstated. Again, a lifetime musician, Wayne started musical endeavors as a jazz sax player who wanted to learn the keys solo to Boston's "Smokin". He is a tremendous talent you simply must hear.

Howard Scaman
(Bass & Vocals) Howard's great bass work keeps us grounded and puts a smile on all our faces. We'll post more on his bio when he gives us one. So for now, we'll simply refrain from making stuff up about him.

Alane Ratway
(Vocals) Alane is the newest addition to Ugly Rumor. She is a tremendous classically trained vocalist, allowing to expand our musical offerings to places we only dreamed about. When not on stage, Alane is a mom and a complete badass Crossfitter (#145 in the world in her age demographic!).

Mike Dare
(Sound Engineer). Let's be clear...as a band we ROCK. However, we only sound as good as our Sound Engineer enables us. To that end, we never play a gig without a full-time sound man, and that is Mike. When not making us sound awesome, he cheats on us with a few other local Denver Bands and also runs sound for the Legacy High School Marching band. We are a bit lost, incomplete and really feel like we are playing naked without him at the board (tablet?)

We were so impressed by Ugly Rumor, they were incredible!! We got very personalized attention and service prior to the event and their talent was seriously impressive!! They had our entire party dancing and many of our guests commented on how great the band was! We also appreciated how well they accommodated our request for specific British Rock songs. They even did a special band rehearsal just for our event! We highly recommend this band, you will be thrilled!

We hired Ugly Rumor to provide "car related" music for our Car Show in July. They kept in touch with us prior to our event, and were always courteous and punctual in all communications. Ugly Rumor is a "terrific band"-- a quote from my son-in-law, who is a sound engineer in Southern California and books bands for a club there. I really enjoyed meeting the band members and loved the music-- and it was nice to have my own opinion verified by a professional! We hope we can book them to come again next year!
