For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), LexxiFoxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. With three full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level You Tube status and high-profile television appearances such asJimmy Kimmel Live,Larry King Now, andFOX NFL Sunday, the band is touring in support of their upcomingeffort, Lower The Bar(Kobalt Music Group).Oftheirlast studio albumAll You Can Eat, Rolling Stone avowed, “There’s a reason Steel Panther have transcended their origins as a cover band playing the Sunset Strip,” while Metal Sucks declared, “Steel Panther’s concept is genius...their songwriting is...preposterously snappy –and relatable.”

Cody Place was born into a family full of musicians. He was introduced to singing and performing at an early age and at 13, he became obsessed with music. Not just heavy metal and rock but, also blues, R&B, and country. After playing out in bars & fairs for years with various projects, In The Red was in need of a new front man. As another project ended, the next step for him began here. The rest is history. Currently, Cody is using Shure wireless systems.
Pete Rizzo has been playing guitar for many years. He has been all over the world playing in original and cover bands. Music is where his heart is, music makes him happy, it’s what he does. Pete loves writing and playing original material and seeing others enjoy it. His only dream is to make this full time. Pete uses Line 6 Spider Valve heads, Marshall cabinets and ESP guitars.
John Halligan has been playing drums since the age of 10. He grew up in a house where music was always on and family parties always moved to being around the piano with everyone singing. A self taught drummer that learned by listening to tapes and CD's taken from his older brother, John is continually working on his weaknesses and pulling influences from his favorite drummers. Drummers like Morgan Rose, Ray Luzier, Carter Beauford and many others. John is endorsed by SJC drums and uses the following gear - Vic Firth, Sabian, DW, Ahead, Shure
Arthur Pelletier was also raised in a very musical family. His father being a drummer meant that as soon as he could crawl, he was already after trying to climb on drums. As he got older that's exactly what happened, until his parents split and his access to drums disappeared. Luckily, his uncle was a bass player and thus started him on his journey of stringed instruments. Art has played guitar for many local acts and toured with even more as a drummer. When In The Red was in need of a new bassist, vocalist Cody Place asked his former drummer if he could fill in on short notice. Since then, he continues to play bass for the band and evolve in the craft. Currently, Arthur uses an assortment of Live gear including a Black35 and Fender jazz basses, Line 6 wireless, and Darkglass Electronics to name a few, as he tries to discover what works.
