BOSTYX features all the hits of BOSTON and STYX together in one amazing and harmonious live show featuring David Victor, former vocalist/guitarist for multi-platinum superstars BOSTON. David recorded and toured with BOSTON on two North American tours and performed lead vocals on a #1 hit single in 2014 with the song “Heaven On Earth”.
BOSTYX features an amazing line-up of LA’s finest performing rock talent, including drummer/vocalist Glenn Jost who deftly handles the powerful and distinctive vocals of Dennis DeYoung. Gunslinger Roby Duron, groove-meister Manny Aguirre, and keyboardist Victor Bender help make this band the premiere live re-creation of the studio sounds of BOSTON and STYX.
BOSTYX’s acoustic performance highlights the amazing vocal harmonies and melodies of BOSTON and STYX including hits such as “More Than A Feeling,” “Peace of Mind,” “Amanda,” “Lady,” and “Come Sail Away”. Being unplugged also allows for performances of some of the most intimate, heartfelt album cuts from these two great bands, including STYX’s “Crystal Ball” and BOSTON’s “A Man I’ll Never Be” and “Hitch A Ride”.
Bostyx performed at Strings Music Festival in fall 2016.
