Rick Vincent, Vocals and Keyboards
A native of New Jersey, Rick brings East Coast swagger to every gig. Along with Dave and Mike, he is a founding member of Renegade and his resume includes vast experience with a variety of pop, rock and Christian bands. A dynamic musician on keyboards, Rick also shines as the band's primary lead vocalist. His voice is versatile enough to handle even the most challenging artists of the second generation of classic rock.
Dave Glaser, Guitar and Vocals
Dave started playing in his mid-teens in New York state during the era of the 1980s guitar heroes. Following graduation from the University of South Florida in 1988, Dave put the guitar aside for more than a decade to pursue career goals. After re-discovering the instrument in the early 2000s, he became a member of the Sarasota/Bradenton-based band, HWY 41. That group played rock, blues, and pop covers at venues throughout the area for nearly six years before Dave, Mike and Rick formed Renegade in 2012, returning to their classic rock roots.
Mike Rettig, Guitar
Mike Rettig, Guitar
Growing up in a musical family in Indiana - his Mom was a piano teacher - Mike discovered a love for music and the guitar at a young age. He has since grown to become one of the most versatile guitar players around. Mike has an encyclopedic knowledge of music and his playing style easily shifts from blues, to country, folk, and, of course, rock. He was a key part of the highly successful Sarasota/Bradenton cover bands Almost Famous and HWY 41 throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, but has found his star shining brightest as the lead guitarist with Renegade. His supersonic leads and dynamic rhythm playing drive the band.
Joe Heacker, Drums
Joe began playing at age 11 and continued in concert and marching bands throughout grade school. Unable to resist the urge to play live, he went straight into the music biz and on the road with various acts up and down the East Coast. Joe settled briefly in Tennessee before heading back to his home town of Dayton, Ohio, where he began playing with several influential local bands that shared the stage with acts including The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Steve Morse and Matt Guitar Murphy. He also recorded with producer Bill Halverson (Crosby Stills Nash & Young). Joe moved to Austin, Texas in 1984 and served as a fill-in for international acts performing at the SXSW music festival each spring. Upon relocating to Florida in 2016, Joe became a full-time member of Renegade.
