Sebastian Bach has sold in excess of 20 million records worldwide as the original lead singer of the band Skid Row, and as a solo artist.
Far from just being a multi-platinum recording artist, he has expended his career over the past decade to include a five-season recurring role on the hit series Gilmore Girls; voice-over work on SpongeBob SquarePants and Robot Chicken; starring roles on Broadway in Jekyll & Hyde, The Rocky Horror Show, and Jesus Christ Superstar; and appearances on ABC’s Sing Your Face Off, the comedy series Trailer Park Boys, MTV and VH1.
In December 2106, he released his highly anticipated biography titled 18 and Life on Skid Row, which details his life from his birth in the Bahamas to his teenage years in Canada to the music that rocks his life today.
Dirty Deeds The AC/DC Experience out of Boston, Mass, has been touring the US for over 20 years bringing forth their high energy and wildly entertaining tribute to one of the world's best rock bands, AC/DC! Dirty Deeds' performance revisits all of the timeless AC/DC hits along with a theatrical ride through rock n' roll history.
Thrilldriver is a high-energy, riff-driven, hard rock outfit from New York City. Fronted by singer/keytarist Zoe Friedman, the band draws heavily on arena rock influences like Aerosmith and The Darkness while fusing modern elements of metal, pop, and progressive rock to form a hard-hitting sound that is refreshingly familiar but all it’s own.
