Our Story

Band was started in 1977 by Rick Sullivan Rex Corson Mike Greer. Mike left shortly after the band was put together. Then came Jim Lynch. Rick Rex and Jim enjoyed many years of popularity and giging doing an average 48 weeks a year of 2 nighters for years.  With the passing of Rick and Jim that puts us where we are now. Rex, Derek Price and Ken Kent. Very talented musicians with over 80yrs  experience are carrying on the "FREE TIME" name and spirit.   It was once heard "You young men from the cornfields of Northern Illinois go forth into the world  and play Rock n Roll and from this day forward  thow shall be known as "FREE TIME" and these three musicians being the next metimorphisis are carrying on the FREE TIME spirit in the music and their Original tunes. See you soon. "NOTHIN FANCY JUST ROCK N ROLL"

What Inspires Us

   What inspires us is the love of music and how it cures the soul and the happiness it brings.  With a wide range in ages,  Derek 36,  Ken 54, and Rex 63 the co-founder of the band, the commariderie is great and brings with it a wide range in tastes of music which works well, and Darren Corson doing sound engineering and having 20+ yrs exp. Sure helps.
