About the Headliner

On a frigid New Years Eve show in 1976, two local Cincinnati bands where scheduled to perform together. All seemed like just another Happy New Year’s show with the slight exception that only one member from each band had showed up: None other than founding members Gregg St. Charles and Joey Von Richter. The two then scrambled to collect enough pocket change to make a few calls to find some other musicians to help cover the night. What went down on that special night was nothing short of a belated Christmas miracle, for on that magical night was forged the beginning of a band that would come and go for the next 33 years. Midnight Special then went on to tour nationally becoming one of America’s premier rock’n’roll shows, opening for countless national headliners at fairs, theaters, festivals, theme parks and bar mitzvah’s. Midnight Special also enjoyed regional success on Polygraph Records with the release of “Eye to Eye” and “Dixie Normous.”
