The BulletBoys began as a collection of talented musicians from high profile bands such as King Kobra and Ratt. Using their credentials, they were able to quickly capture the attention of music fans around the world while front man Marq Torien emerged as one of the most underrated vocalists of the era.
The BulletBoys formed in 1988 at the very peak of the Los Angeles glam metal movement. With record companies constantly searching for new talent, they possessed a pedigree that most bands would kill for. Unlike the other glam rockers of the day, the BulletBoys were more hard rock and blues fusion than pure hair metal. Thanks to comparisons to the likes of Aerosmith and especially Van Halen, talent scouts came running and the band quickly received their first major label contract.
Enuff Z'nuff is an American melodic rock band from Blue Island, Illinois. Founded by singer Donnie Vie and bassist Chip Z’Nuff, this Chicago area band is best known for their charting singles “Fly High Michelle” and “New Thing.”
Enuff Z’nuff has continually recorded and toured throughout their career of more than 20 years, releasing 12 studio albums and a total of 19 CDs to date. The band's first single, "Fingers On It," received some minor recognition when it was featured in the 1986 cult movie Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Their songs have been recorded by several other musicians, some of which include Paul Gilbert, The Wildhearts, and Nelson. The band has a cult fan-base around the world which includes radio personality Howard Stern.
A steady presence in the local music scene for the past 15 years, Rene has fronted rock bands - Chipper Dove, Maximum Overdrive and Laughin’ Luggage. Searching for an outlet to showcase his catalog of original music, in 2008 Rene began performing as a solo acoustic act, opening up for various local bands at bars and clubs in and around New York and New Jersey. As a singer/songwriter/guitar player, he has performed at the ‘Gotta Sing’ singer’s showcase in NYC and regularly attends Open Artists Night at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park. While residing in Kinnelon, NJ, Rene continually adds new music to his ever-expanding repertoire of covers and originals.
