Hy-5

Great local band with a big following. Pumped for their debut in the Levity Taproom!

Rob Ruff and Dave Donaldson have been with HY-5 since its start in the 1980's. Since then, there have been slight variations of its members, but have always consistently provided quality classic rock tunes to its fans. Since Rob and Dave are from Ligonier, HY-5 started playing primarily in that area which has created a great fan base there and has grown to the surrounding areas.
Rob Ruff has been playing guitar since he was 15 years old. His early influences of Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath can still be heard in his style today. His technique is second to none and his constant desire to improve inspires us all to become better musicians. He has played in several bands over the years and even wrote all the music in an original band he had.
Dave Donaldson started drumming after Rob expressed the need for a drummer in a band he was forming early in his career. Now, 40+ years later, he keeps us rocking without missing a beat. Dave also chimes in with vocals on several songs.
Bob Mulhollen is from the Somerset area. He has played bass in several different bands over the years but has always stayed true to his love of classic rock. He sings lead on many of our songs as well as harmony on many others. He was also in the original band with Rob.
Gary Hay lives in the Ligonier area. He plays guitar and harmonica as well as adds vocals to many songs and takes the lead on a couple. Gary just loves to play. If there's a guitar around, Gary is playing it!
MaryAnn Ruff sang in lounge-type bands until Rob's original progressive rock band needed some back-up vocals and keyboards. Now she is enjoying singing the "chick" tunes for HY-5 and adding some keyboard.
