The Executives were formed in 1997 and are the area’s only exclusive 1960s rock and roll band. Our five piece band features 3 part harmonies, and authentic 60s period guitars (Gibson, Fender, Rickenbacker) and amplifiers (Fender and Vox) to recreate the joyful music of the early 1960s.
The Executives are: Tom Kelley-lead guitar, harmonica and vocals, Lee Rasch-bass guitar and vocals; Roger Christians-guitar, keyboards and vocals, Jeff Lokken- rhythm guitar and vocals, and Keith Isaacs-drums. The members of the Executives got their start in the music explosion that was the 1960s. Early popular bands featuring our members, The Talons The TODD, LockSpeed and Headwinz in Iowa and Bel Esprit and The Eye in Chicago performed for many events across the Midwest from sock hops to opening for major acts of the period.

For 24 years The Executives have kept the music of the 1960s alive performing for area audiences at Riverfest La Crosse, Oktoberfest USA, Bangor Days, West Salem Dairy Days, and Concerts in the Park Series in Holmen, Sparta, and Spring Grove. We are a founding band for La Crosse’s Moon Tunes, the Hunger Task Force’s Rockin Out Hunger, Holmen Concerts in the Park and The American Legion La Crosse’s Rock the Vets. We have also opened for Gary Puckett of the Union Gap at the Temple Theatre in Viroqua and were the opening act for the Tree Town Music Festival in Forest City, Iowa. Headliners for this 3 day festival were Blake Shelton, Rascal Flats, 38 Special and Dierks Bentley.
Our commitment to recreating the sounds of the 60s with a true joy of performance are guaranteed to bring a smile and make you want to get up and dance
