TESLA 1985 to Present

The band City Kidd was renamed Tesla during the recording of their first album, 1986’s Mechanical Resonance, on the advice of their manager that City Kidd was not a great name (in addition, there was already another band going by that name). The band derived their name, certain album and song titles, and some song content from events relating to inventor and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla. Along with the band’s next two studio albums, Mechanical Resonance was produced by Michael Barbiero and Steve Thompson

The band’s original lineup consisted of lead vocalist Jeff Keith, guitarists Frank Hannon and Tommy Sketch (replaced by current band member  Dave Rude) , bassist Brian Wheat, and drummer Troy Luccketta.
