The Band first formed in 2004 with Gregg Reo, singing lead vocal and playing bass in a 3-piece. After working with a number of different musicians and constantly searching for the best, he settled down with Gerry Maciok playing Bass, Dave Kincius whacking skins with great power, and Jason Nays providing guitar riffs denser than a black hole! Ever since then, they’ve been rocking the main local venues from small (Small's - Hamtramck) to large (DTE Energy Music Theatre), opening for many national acts, working on original material and waiting for a big break. The name of the band stems from the fact that, initially, everyone agreed Tuesday would be the best day for everyone to practice but every time it came around somebody couldn't make it, hence Impossible Tuesday!
Born in Detroit and raised in the suburbs of the metro area Gerry was hooked on music at an early age and started playing the Guitar at the age of Thirteen. For several years he played in garage bands and eventually gravitated towards the microphone and Bass Guitar. By the age of eighteen he began gigging and played the Detroit rock scene with original acts: The Creeps, Sticky Diz, Sycho Machine and Adams Revenge. Gerry has been influenced by most genres of Rock and any music with heart and soul including the Motown sound, Folk and older Country music that inspired him on his different writing styles. "My goal in music is simple, to continually write pieces or songs that please me while still connecting with other musicians and people that can relate to my message or songs, Impossible Tuesday gives me that platform"

Dave got his first drum set at age 5. Taught himself how to play after getting his first album, Kiss Destroyer at the same time. He immediately moved to harder more complex material, although he did not nail it right away, he learned by playing along with Rush records.
He has lived most of his life in Michigan. Born in Hammond, Indiana, just a hair outside of Chicago, then to Tinley Park, Illinois, and Rochester Minnesota before then. He definitely could live the rest of his life without ever seeing another snowflake again!
