Started in 2007 by Kortas (aka. The really tall guy in The Lucky Devils and Jimbo Jones) and Jason Knudson (of Captain Eleven, formerly of Pocket Genius and REVENGE!) as a way to get together, maybe play a couple original songs and Ramones tunes - no big deal. As more and more songs got written, they started to realize that there was some potential and decided to round up some more band members. They found Matt Potocnik (of Captain 11, formerly of Sadie Foster and Motion City Soundtrack) to play bass shortly thereafter. After trying out several different guitarists for quite some time, they got Joe Vampire (formerly of Missed Opportunity and Letdown 82) to join in early 2009.
They added a singer, Christoff (formerly of Dry Socket and Olsen Twin Suicide), midway through 2009 and the band lineup was finally complete. After the Ghosts' second show in 2010, Christoff moved to South Carolina and Matt left the band due to time constraints and the preference of playing guitar in Captain Eleven.
Never to be deterred, Old Towne Ghosts added Brendan Quinn (formerly of Missed Opportunity and Flat Earth Conspiracy) on bass and his wife, Kelly Quinn (who has appeared on every Missed Opportunity album and has an extensive musical performance background) on vocals in early 2010. Since then, the band lineup has been stable and we have been steadfast in our commitment to burn the musical landscape to the ground.
September 2011 will mark the release of Old Towne Ghosts' first EP, Torch. Keep checking Facebook, MySpace, or Reverb Nation for updates.
