Biography
Ron Tuccitto, raised in South Omaha began playing rock music for the public at age 14. He was one of the first electric bass players in Omaha. One of his first professional jobs was to record and tour with rock-a-billy legend, Carl Cherry. Cherry scored a major hit in 1959 with his Tene records recording of "The Itch". Tuccitto also played in other early Omaha bands: The Impacts, The Berry Brothers, Johnny Ray Gomez, The Uneeks, and the Sen-Say-Shuns with brothers Dick and Ross. Also performing in the Sen-Say-Shuns was blues legend "Bugsy" Maugh...later to play with The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Todd Rundgren. Around 1978, Tuccitto formed The Mob, along with Dave Halverson and Joe Beck. Mike Semrad, formerly with The Nomads J. Harrison B. and the Bumbles, and The Smoke Ring, joined in 1986. Semrad and Tuccitto continued to perform with The Mob until Tuccitto's untimely death on February 27th, 1998 in a vehicle accident while going to a dance job in Lincoln. Other early members included Wayne Jacobson and Scott Cody. Unlike many other great rockers who lose their passion for playing, Tuccitto continued to play in bands almost continuously from 1956 to 1998...over 41 years till the time of his death at age 54.
