Hard rock band, Wild Blue were originally from Chicago, and were previously known as Jinx. As history would have it, there appeared to be a lot of hi-jinx with this version of the band. Let’s take a history lesson. As mentioned, Wild Blue formed as a springboard from the band Jinx which performed locally in clubs in and around the Chicago area. Their most formative period saw keyboardist Joe Zanona, bassist Terry Curtain and former Trillion member Frank Barbalace as key players; though the trio were still looking for a female vocalist and a drummer. On board came drummer Mike Netf and Wisconsin raised singer Renee Varo. Wild Blue raised their proﬁle locally, with gigs and then record deals. The ﬁrst (and ultimately the best) deal came from Chryalis Records, a label better represented in the UK with a strong roster over there.
