Rippin / Bio

Rippin is an American rock band originally formed in 1997. The band was formed by former PuzzleView members Jeff Rippin, Paul Dorato and Jerry Heeschen. Rippin released their first self-titled CD in 1998. The song, Anytime Anywhere, received some national commercial airplay. Rippin then released a second CD in 2001, titled Rippin II. On their second release, In The Shadows, Heartburn and Honey, also received national airplay rotation. Bassist Jerry Heeschen was at a karaoke bar and heard Dave Muhoberac singing. Muhoberac was invited to sit in on a few songs and soon after became the lead vocalist. Rippin then recorded a third CD, Can't Get Over It. Again, the band received national commercial airplay with songs, Road Rage, and Johnny. These first three albums were all recorded either in a basement or a garage. In an attempt to gain more attention, the band started to record the fourth album as a higher quality, three-song demo. During the recording, drummer Paul Dorato started having serious health issues. At this point, the band brought in long-time friend, John Castignani, to take over. This short demo was recorded in TikiTown Studios, produced by Scott Mathews. This demo helped the band finally land a deal being signed to Tate Music Group's label. Rippin is excited to share their music--hope you enjoy!
