Enuff Z’nuff are the 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 were to change the course of the bands history, New Thing and Fly High Michelle. Both songs were played constantly on radio, and gained heavy rotation on MTV spending over 60 weeks in the top 10.

1991 saw the band release its follow up, Strength. The album had more of a rock overtone, and following its release, the band became regulars on shows like David Letterman and Howard Stern and was featured in Rolling Stone’s hot issue as ‘the next big thing’.

In 1993 the band left Atco records and moved to Arista, releasing the album, Animals With Human Intelligence. The album gained lots of critical acclaim, and prior to its release, Vikki Foxx was replaced by new drummer Ricky Parent.

Still a major force after 20+ albums, Enuff Z’nuff still has a legion of loyal fans, and has earned the respect and acclaim of its peers and contemporaries. With the addition of longtime guitarist: Tory Stoffregen, former Enuff Z’nuff singer/guitarist: Alex Kane, and Chicago native: Daniel Benjamin Hill, the band continues to tour and record relentlessly.

Industry heavyweights have been singing the praises of Enuff Z’nuff for years:

Howard Stern: “Enuff Z’nuff deserve rock-star status”.

Paul Stanley: “Their debut is a classic”.

David Letterman: “When it comes to rock n’ roll, these guys are all you need”.

Little Steven Van Zandt: “Enuff Z’nuff is one of the most underrated bands in the world”.

Enuff Z’nuff are:

Chip Z’nuff: Singer/ Electric bass guitar

Tory Stoffregen: Guitar

Alex Kane: Guitar

Dan Hill: Drums

3 of the Bay Area’s Best Hard Rock/ Metal bands together for 1 night of amazing music!!! Saturday September 5th! Right here at the House Of Rock! Don’t miss it!

ZED has been making their roaring presence felt in the Bay Area rock scene since 2007 with heavy footprints and sonically indelible marks are San Jose earth shakers ZED. With a sound based on the core principles of blues, heaviness, groove, and feel, this quartet is the genuine article. No bell bottoms, wizard sleeves, or hip huggers for this crew. Instead, it’s a barrage of head-bobbing, air-guitaring, hip-shaking, blues-driven riffage as delivered by the bastards of rock & roll.
From their inception ZED made a name for themselves with their crushing live shows and incessant grooves. Having played together in various projects since 1998, including releasing several albums with the band Stitch for Prosthetic and Metal Blade Records, guitarist/vocalist Peter Sattari and bassist Mark Aceves joined up with guitar wizard Greg Lopez and drummer extraordinaire Sean Boyles in order to create a sound that was uniquely their own, whose sole purpose was to rock. Drawing from their varied influences, ranging from classic ’70s rock to punk and hardcore by way of metal and old school funk, ZED writes music fueled by nasty grooves. The band has been called “a pissed off Led Zeppelin with Chris Cornell meets Ian Astbury on vocals.”
In recent years the bands momentum has exploded, signing to Ripple Music and growing into a household name in the stoner rock community. Their hard-grooving live show has seen the band perform as headliner support at Maryland Doom Fest and numerous SXSW events. Now as ZED prepares to re-issue their classic sophomore record Desperation Blues and release their next full length, they are eagerly anticipating their first European tour, built around what promises to be a benchmark performance at Desertfest London. No matter the consequences, ZED will rumble on!

Scorching quartet capture live set at the House of Rock for April release on Ripple Music

“Crunchy riffs, melodic vocals, and a stoner attitude, they come at you like a full-on Harley Davidson storming down the highway.” — ECHOES AND DUST

On April 24, home of all things riff-heavy and rapid-fire rock Ripple Music will release the new live EP High and Alive from high-octane San Francisco American metal purveyors THE WATCHERS.  Following their 2018 album Black Abyss, the new EP delivers a searing performance recording of the band laying down their signature blend of stoner-doom with flourishes of thrash and riff-metal from across the spectrum of heaviness history.

Recorded live at the House of Rock in Santa Rosa last September, High and Alive captures The Watchers doing what they do best – burning down the stage with jaw-dropping musicianship and infectious heavy anthems.

Says singer Tim Narducci, “We’ve always wanted to record the band in a live setting. The energy and interpretation of the songs are a bit different every time we step on stage, and anything can happen.  High and Alive was an excellent evening of heavy and in the right setting. We were fortunate to have captured this particular performance.”

“A burly mix of classic doom a la The Obsessed with some melodic sludge in the vein of Corrosion of Conformity. It’s heavy stuff, but with massive hooks and soaring anthems.” — TREBLE

“Well-versed in the enigmatic ways of heavy rock, packing an onslaught of massive riffs and twists that take the listener through a heady and heavy musical trip.” — BLABBERMOUTH

Engineered by Evan Alexander and Harry Gale with mixing and mastering by Tim Narducci, High and Alive will be released on digital formats from Ripple Music on April 24th.

In the world of music, Guns N’ Roses need no introduction. Few bands in history have achieved the level of success and recognition that GNR has. The addition of keyboardist Dizzy Reed in 1990 marked a stylistic turning point in the band’s maturity, incorporating piano and the epic tones of the Hammond B-3 into their aggressive hard rock sound.
Born in Hinsdale, Illinois and raised in Colorado, Dizzy started his musical journey in early childhood. His grandmother, who lived in the apartment above, played the organ, and taught Dizzy on her Lowry. Growing up, Dizzy was exposed to his father’s love of Booker T and the MGs. Once young Dizzy realised that was the same instrument he could play, he was hooked. By the age of 12 he was touring with his own band. Other early influences were John Lord, Gregg Rolie, and Grand Funk Railroad.
In 1985, Dizzy moved to Los Angeles, where a wild, rich musical scene was hitting its stride.
It was the place to be. There were thousands of bands from all over the world, trying to be the next big thing. There was an incredible amount of energy and it was magic.”
While rehearsing and living in a Hollywood practice room, Dizzy befriended Axl Rose and, in 1990, he joined Guns N’ Roses on keys and backing vocals for the recording of Use Your Illusion I & II. Making the transition from club rocker to a member of the biggest stadium band in the world required the majesty of the Hammond B-3, which Dizzy employed on the classic tracks “Dust ‘n’ Bones”, “Yesterdays” “14 Years”, and “Don’t Damn Me”.
In 2012, Dizzy was inducted into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Guns N’ Roses. He has toured with the Psychedelic Furs and has toured, recorded and written with supergroup The Dead Daisies whose lineup has featured members of The Cult, Motley Crüe, White Snake, The Rolling Stones and Thin Lizzy.
He also sings lead vocals with his side project, Hookers and Blow. Dizzy is a father of four and lives with his New Zealand-born wife, Nadja, in Los Angeles. On surviving and flourishing in rock’s ‘sharky’ waters, he says, “Never stop learning and exploring, but don’t forget what you do best. Stick to your guns.”
Early 2018 saw the release of Dizzy’s long-awaited solo album through powerhouse indie rock label, Golden Robot Records. The album features players from some of the world’s biggest rock bands including fellow Guns N’ Roses members Richard Fortus, Frank Ferrer. Tommy Stinson and Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal; Thin Lizzy’s Ricky Warwick; Mike Dupke and Mike Duda of W.A.S.P.; Psychedelic Furs saxophonist Mars Williams and many more.
