Don Rusczynski, alias DR aka “the rock doctor” sings lead for The Grid.

Born and bred on the North Side of town, started singing in grade school because I wanted to be in a band but I couldn’t play an instrument. Sang everything from rhythm and blues to the British invasion to bands with horns then disco and now with The Grid, going full circle back to the classic rock and roll that I love. Some bands you may or may not know that I had the pleasure to sing with were McGraw, Brighton, Summerhill, The Persuaders and now…..The Grid.
