The Rock ‘n’ Roll cover band, Rude E Bones – a group of Toronto boys who’ve gained a loyal following – played a packed house this past Saturday with classic hits from AC/DC, to The Rolling Stones.
The band reunited yet again at the trendy pub in Vaughan, Fionn MacCool’s, where the crowd of regulars filled the dancefloor. Although the band does not perform every weekend, new and old faces are amongst the crowd.
The name ‘Rude E Bones’ was influenced by the nickname of a good friend of the band. His influence radiated amongst the group causing him to be their inspiration.
Domenic Aiello, lead singer of the band says that no band member is alike, but the love of music is what brought them together.
“We’re individuals, we’re all different in our own ways but we come together to create magic on stage,” Aiello says.
Aiello also believes that the vibe of the band is what keeps their fans coming back for more.
“Everyone comes to see us, they always remember us, our name, our personality, and all the genres of music that we do,” Aiello says.
Frank Francella, bass guitarist for Rude E Bones was the last member to join the band. Aside from having identical hairstyles with the lead singer, Francella also shares a passion of music and is not afraid to admit it.
“It’s my release, it’s my passion. I just love to do it.”
Rude E Bones plays a wide range of genres. From hard core rock ‘n’ roll to classic melodies. Fan favourites include AC/DC’s ‘Back in Black’.
Long-time friend of the band, Joe Arciero, has shared some significant moments with this group of rock ‘n’ rollers.
“We all went to school together, from kids and we just happened to one day just start jamming; a couple guys played instruments, and one thing led to another,” Arciero says.
Arciero has watched them grow and has been by their side every step of the way.

Rude E Bones will continue to play music until they are no longer capable of doing so.
