Styx is from Chicago that formed in 1972 and became famous for its albums released in the late 1970s and early 1980s. They are best known for melding hard rock guitar balanced with acoustic guitar, synthesizers mixed with acoustic piano, upbeat tracks with power ballads, and incorporating elements of international musical theatre. The band established itself with a progressive rock sound in the 1970s and began to incorporate pop rock and soft rock elements in the 1980s. (Wikipedia)

Tommy Shaw  Lead vocals, guitars

Chuck Panozzo  Bass, vocals

Todd Sucherman  Drums, percussion

Lawrence Gowan  Lead vocals, keyboards

Ricky Phillips  Bass, guitar, vocals

This is a band that never has a bad show. I think our level of professionalism, musicianship, and spirit carries that across every night. The fact that we have so much fun when we’re playing — that’s very contagious. That’s a miraculous feat in and of itself. We never walk off the stage thinking, ‘What happened?’” Todd Sucherman/Drummer 1995-Present

Every night, we go on that magic carpet ride together,” “The thing I always like the most is the immediate response we get when playing live,” Chuck Panozzo original bassist, who joins the band on tour as often as he can. Chuck is a co-founding member with his fraternal twin brother, drummer John Panozzo, who died in July 1996

There are so many portals to reach your musical soul, and our live show is like a religious experience where people come to commune and testify. We have a pretty sophisticated audience, and we really respect that. We didn’t use to have people who would come see every show, but now they’re coming back again and again for more. And we owe it to our fans to continually rehearse, prepare, and improve.” Tommy Shaw/Guitarist/Lead Vocals 1975-Present  Styx World
