First Rush / Bio

First Rush is a new version of classic rock with great new music with a message. With origins firmly rooted in their progressive rock history, the members of First Rush are made up of original “First Rush” members Mike Sauce – lead vocals and guitar, Rick Johansen – drums and vocals, Skip Johnson - bass guitar and backup vocals, and Mark Hicks – keyboards and backup vocals. Rounding out the quintet on guitar, keyboards and vocals is Steve Holbrook.

These fine musicians have been involved in the North Texas music scene since the early 1970’s. They have been players in these popular area bands: Saratoga (70’s), First Rush (70’s and 80’s), Double Ace (70’s to current), Stark Ravin’ (Polydor recording artists 70’s and early 80’s), Lynx (70’s and 80’s), The Joe City Band (80’s), Lo Della (70’s and 80’s), and the infamous Inflatable Dates (80’s and 90’s).

First Rush continues to carry their skillful stylistic interpretations of their chosen classic rock genre into the new century with the sophomore release of their latest album entitled “The Road Less Traveled”, a progressive, yet classic sound for all ages, released in January of 2014. "It's About Time" was their initial EP released in 2012.
