Guitarist Tommy Kessler (Blondie)

Bassist Winston Roye (Soul Asylum)

Keyboard player Jonathan Ivie Air Supply)

Drummer Jason Gianni (TSO),

The band will perform the hits from the 5-time Tony-nominated Broadway smash "Rock of Ages," which include hits by Bon Jovi, Foreigner, Journey, Whitesnake, Poison, Joan Jett, Styx, Pat Benatar, Def Leopard and more.

Known as the best party on Broadway for over 6 years, Broadway’s Rock of Ages has performed over 10,000 shows on Broadway followed by a very successful national tour. The Rock of Ages Band was the driving force behind the success of the show. Continuing to delight fans, the band has performed all over the country, the Caribbean and Europe with rousing accolades as the true sound of '80s rock that made the Broadway show so special.
