Enuff Z’nuff is a living, breathing example of what a rock/ pop group should be. The band was formed in 1984 in Blue Island, Illinois. Its first release, “Fingers On It,” gave the band some initial recognition when the track was featured in the 1986 cult movie Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.
By 1989, original members, Chip Z’Nuff and Donnie Vie were joined by guitarist Derek Frigo and drummer Vikki Foxx. The band had signed with Atco/ Atlantic Records that same year and released their debut self-titled album. The album spawned two singles that would change the course of the band’s history, ‘New Thing’ and ‘Fly High Michelle.’ Both songs were played constantly on the radio and gained heavy rotation on MTV spending over 60 weeks in the top 10.
Still a major force after 20+ albums, Enuff Z’nuff still has a legion of loyal fans and has earned respect and acclaim of its peers and contemporaries. With the solid foundation of longtime guitarist, Tory Stoffregan, Chicago native: Daniel Benjamin Hill on drums, and Jason Camino on stage left guitar, the band continues to tour and record relentlessly.
When The Quireboys released This Is Rock N Roll in 2001 it felt like a timely reminder of a less complicated past. A long-forgotten era when feelgood live music provided food for the soul. And a time when simple songs about love, loss, fun and friendship filled jukeboxes and packed playlists on both sides of the Pond.
Eight years had passed since The Quireboys initially went their separate ways — marginalised by grunge, nu-metal and rank mismanagement. But, This Is Rock N Roll announced a welcome return for a band that celebrated sustained chart success and global acclaim on the back of debonair debut A Bit Of What You Fancy. Stylistically, a classy comeback record delivered, a respectful nod to the past. But ,This Is Rock N Roll was more about looking forward than looking back.
And ultimately it would lay the foundation for the band’s long-term future — inspiring a run of critically acclaimed records that firmly established The Quireboys as the godfathers of British rock and roll. This Is Rock N Roll signalled the start of a prolific songwriting partnership that would go on to underpin two decades of remarkable creativity.
Bad Marriage is not just another band out of Boston. They come out of the gutter swinging with a thunderous rock n roll swagger that would make the ‘Bad Boys of Boston’ smile. Indulging their mutual thirst for tone and overdriven guitars, Bad Marriage pays homage to the British blues-hard rock of the past while etching their own signature style and sound. Formed in 2015, Bad Marriage exploded onto the hard rock scene, setting the bar high with their airtight, energetic live shows that has created a massive following of support.
