The 25’s are a cover band based in Toledo, Ohio. The 25’s first became a “band” when 3 members (Jeff Stewart, Rob Morrin, Vince Lyons) of the once popular band, the Flecks, got together at one of Jeff Stewart’s solo performances.
The group initially performed as a trio until Rob Morrin left the band to join the Resse Dailey Band. He was replaced by drummer Doug Picott(Generra Pantera/Flecks/Earregulars), who had also replaced Morrin in the Flecks many years earlier. The band later added another former Flecks member, guitarist Dave Johnson. The group has performed around the Toledo, Ohio area for several years as Jeff Stewart & the 25’s, playing both Jeff Stewart original music, as well as, cover songs.
At the beginning of 2015 Stewart decided to spend more time focusing on his solo acoustic gigs. The remaining band members (guitarist Dave Johnson, bassist Vince Lyons, and drummer Doug Picott) decided to carry on and enlisted another former Flecks bandmate, keyboardist/vocalist Ron Morrin. Mike Cleveland (Blitzen/All Hail Me/River Kings) was also brought on board to contribute additional guitar and vocals. The 25’s can be seen performing in clubs, at festivals, and special events around the Toledo area.
