Joe Brady (Bass, Lead Vocals)
Junnie Fortney (Guitar)
Troy Alwine (Drums, Backing Vocals)
 
Scanner was formed by Joe Brady and Junnie Fortney in 1979, and played throughout the Central Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Washington D.C. areas.  Scanner’s influences encompass a wide range of styles, including the pioneers of 50s rock and roll, 60s hard rock and surf, and 70s glam and punk.  
 
The band name "Scanner" came into being in 1980, when Joe read an article in a monster magazine about a new movie coming out called "Scanners" and liked the imagery of heads exploding, and imagined it being the effect of hearing Scanner music!
