ESP began in 1995 and performed regularly across the downstate Illinois area for 15 years. The “classic” line-up of Lou DiBello, Kelly Hazel, Gary Strater and Tommy Garza was well known and set a high bar for other rock acts to follow with their high energy shows and top notch musicianship. Gary passed away in 2004 after a battle with cancer, and the band continued on through personnel and other life changes. In 2008 Steve Hall took over bass duties, joining Lou and Kelly after having played with each of them previously in different bands years earlier. The band continued until 2009, before taking a hiatus from performing.
After taking time off for family and writing and recording new original material, Lou began The Lou DiBello Band in July 2011, playing original and classic guitar-based rock instrumental music. With drummer Chris Napier and keyboardist/guitarist Mark Smart on board, along with bassist Mike Hallihan, this band quickly gained a reputation as a super hot group playing at a technical level few achieve, locally or otherwise. Despite the rewards of playing such demanding music the band wanted to pursue a more vocal oriented direction. Kelly Hazel was asked to join, and the writing was on the wall that ESP would rise again.
Time constraints with other projects led Mike Hallihan to step aside from ESP, but this was “one door closing and another opening” as Steve Hall rejoined the band on bass, bringing his experience and great singing voice back to the band. In 2014 drummer Todd Asper joined the band, and the band once again kicked it up another notch, delivering blistering hot performances to start the new year!
With the expanded line-up including keys/second guitar, ESP has focused the set list on all the best Power Packed Rock from the 70's and 80's, including bands like Journey, Kansas, REO, Boston, Scorpions, Foreigner, April Wine, Sammy Hagar, Bad Company and so many more!
