Ivan has been playing in Minnesota cover bands for the past twenty years. Ivan plays multiple instruments including bass, keyboards, drums & guitar. He started playing at the age of five on his grandma’s tiny toy piano and drums made of cardboard, Tupperware bowls and pencils and he has not stopped making noise ever since.
Ivan's former bands include Series 5, Playback, Shag, Junkhead, Shattered Image, Power Tripp & Tahara.
Ivan's influences come from 80's hair bands like Bon Jovi, Poison, Def Leppard, Twisted Sister, TNT and the 70's classic rock bands like Journey, Kansas, Styx, Foreigner, Boston, Queen. "I love bands with big vocals and tons of vocal harmonies".
"I just love playing music and entertaining people, my goal is to put a smile on everyone's face and make them leave just a little happier then when they came to the show."
