Members: AJ - OZ - WAYNE - MICHAEL
1. Noun: Hungarian-born American actor known for portraying long lasting performances in horror films.
2. Noun: Lugosi is an American rock band formed the 7th of July, 2011. Rising from the ashes of a sun-baked environment, Oz, the band's founding member, pulled together the most ambitious rock 'n roll vamps to create a juggernaut to be reckoned with. AJ, Oz, Wayne and Michael have become willing slaves to the beckoning monster called Lugosi. This is a band that blends the difficult with the obscure, the sexy with the hard core, the metal with the soul and a whole lot of attitude. If you want to listen to the same old familiar style of live entertainment, this is not the band for you. If you want an arena feeling show and have a need to get your ass rocked to songs you can't gt out of your head, we give you Lugosi...
ANTHONY JAMES "AJ" FRATTO: Vocals
Led by former Queensryche "American Soldier", this beast from the east is the live wire that spearheads Lugosi. The infectious compatibility between my bandmates and myself are apparent through our motivational music. I feed off their onslaught and proceed to embrace anything that crosses my path. Emotionally driven, AJ's heart and soul set the standard as a conscientious showman. I live for the crowd; we together are active participants in this beautiful assembly of sound. I consider our band to be "the peoples champ". After all, the people are what it's all about. I'm so proud they allow us to be a representative of their culture and spirit. We will NOT let them down.
CHRIS 'OZ' OSBOURNE: Guitar
Chris Osbourne is the blazing guitarist of Lugosi. Nicknamed Oz, he is a man of many hats, playing just about any lick on his beloved instrument. Heavily influenced by the likes of Randy Rhodes and Edward Van Halen, Oz's ability to play is flawless. His 'can do' attitude makes him a comfortable band mate and a crowd favorite. Oz brings a flood of power and color to the already high octane level present in the band. His ability to enhance the bands groove and play outside the box is infectious.
WAYNE VANNOY: Bass
Since his days as a kid, Wayne was programmed to attack an audience with his bass guitar. His locked and loaded, rock n' roll style of bass playing now woven into the Lugosi fabric of sound, Wayne Vannoy is a definite presence that cannot be ignored. Stalking every part of the stage to interact with all of the fans. The monstrous growling of low end he conjures up provides the perfect layer of thickness to rumble the crowd into a rock 'n roll frenzy. When each show is done, the lights fade and the curtain draws to a close, only then does Wayne feel his sense of accomplishment, but this passion will need to be fed again.
MICHAEL LUKERS: Drums
Known for his technical and visually explosive performances, Michael was born to perform live! Michael is an artist that makes a conscious effort to bring the live shows to a boiling point. Lugosi plays songs people cannot believe they are hearing again. You won't be able to get these out of your head after you hear how we break them down and revamp them. I like performing live with these guys. We click together our unique aura's to create one beast! Michael's kits, through the years, have definitely been designed for a Rock 'n Roll effect. If Lugosi can get the crowd singing and into the groove of a song, then we've done our best! Always strive...
