Payback was formed in march 2000 by band leader Ryan.

Ryan has played in the bands Tinted Image, The Rolando Bros, Ryan Rolando Project and the Blues Cruisers. Ryan has his own solo CD entitled Dues are paid and is available via iTunes. He currently owns his own production studio and is in the process of writing his second solo effort. He has toured and played at major motorcycle events and concerts around the country for over the last 20 years.

Paul started playing the drums when he was 10. My parents gave me a nice black 5-piece Remo pts (pre-tuned system) drum set for Christmas.

Since than, he's had the privilege of playing with:

Thanks, Bad Harvest, Mellowdrama, Slapshot, Linus, Exit, Jud Hailey and The New Harmony, B-Line, The Black Market Bishops and of course the Ryan Rolando Project and Payback.

Honorable mentions: Virginia High School Concert, Pep and Marching Band, Mesabi College Orchestra and Concert Band, Virginia City Band, Augsburg College Chamber Orchestra, Concert Band, Jazz Ensemble, Gospel Praise Big Band and Percussion Ensemble, Saint Paul Civic Orchestra, Masterworks Chorale, Minneapolis Community College Choir and Cantus.

Wife, 3 Kids, solid rock band = Happy, Lucky man.

Kris has played in the bands Linus, The Six Nines and toured with Ultimate Ozzy for a brief period. He has played various shows with Ryan on and off over the years in the Ryan Rolando Project and filled in for Payback.

The bands live set consists of rock, classic rock, and modern rock. On tour features a state of the art sound and light system. Definitely a must see show.
