Before forming Distance of Age, Bass player Kevin LaDuke played in many bands, including singing for The Distractions. Many years later, Kevin and drummer/guitarist Ricky LaDuke played as a duo for a few years, jamming in their garage for fun. Distance of Age was officially formed on March 12th, 2011 in Otsego, MI when guitarist Scott LaDuke II and drummer Donny Ash Jr. joined the band. Since then, Distance of Age has been active in writing songs and playing gigs, mostly as a back yard party band for the biker crowd. As of July 20th, 2012, Distance of Age has composed five original songs from material songwriter Scott LaDuke II has written. Donny Ash has since left the band.
