Enuff Z’Nuff with Bad Marriage
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.
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 acclaims, 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 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.
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. Bad Marriage is made up of Jonny Paquin on vocals, Mike Fitz on lead guitar, Ian Haggerty on rhythm guitar, Todd Boisvert on bass, and Michael Delaney on drums.
Bad Marriage has toured nationally with Tesla and Buckcherry. They have had the honor of opening for Extreme, Stephen Pearcy, L.A. Guns, Geoff Tate, Last in Line, Scott Weiland, and many more. As a result of the band’s success, they were welcomed to play on the 2022 Monsters of Rock cruise and 2022’s Monsters on the Mountain where they shared the stage with legends such as Alice Cooper, Quiet Riot, Kix, Night Ranger, and Tom Keifer.
Bad Marriage has released two full length albums, titled ‘Bad Marriage’ and ‘Bad Marriage 2.’ The band is excited to release their next EP, ‘Artificial Mind’, that was produced by Brian Wheat of Tesla. The lead single ‘Tear it Down’ is ready to release to a mainstream audience in early 2023 with a US tour to start shortly after.
