Tim Fleischer  (left in photo) has entertained audiences in and around Ohio since age 16 when he played guitar and keyboard for his first band The Edicates. By 1969 The Edicates became the "house band" for WLWC's weekly teen TV show "Dance Party" hosted by Jerry Rasor. After The Edicates came The Circus Band, Skyline, The Works, Groovebelly, and Soul Kitch'n. During stints with some of these bands he opened for national acts including: The Drifters, The Turtles, Rare Earth, Gary Pucket, The Byrds, The Buckinghams and Kenny Rogers. Tim also played keyboards for the legendary Peter Noone of Hermans Hermits and for Pure Jam featuring John Cougar Mellencamp's brother Joe. He has played at The Atlantis Hotel in Paradise Island and at the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. He attributes his longevity and success to the talented musicians he has had the opportunity to know and play with over the years, and to influences including: Van Morrison, Booker T. & The MG's, Procol Harum, John Mayall, Steve Winwood, and Jimmy Smith.

 

The ori
ginal Edicates shown in the above photo from April 1966 were Tim Fleischer (lead guitar & vocals), Mike Finks (organ and vocals), Mike Fitzgerald (bass) and Glen Cataline (drums and lead vocals).
