Kix is an American glam metal band who achieved its popularity in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They were considered one of Maryland's top cover bands prior to their signing with Atlantic Records in 1981. Though considered by many to be glam metal, the bands pop-metal stylings drew inspiration from bubblegum pop and new wave as well as hard rock.
In 1981, they released their self-titled debut album, Kix, featuring "Atomic Bombs", "Heartache", "Contrary Mary", "The Itch", and "The Kid". "Love at First Sight" instantly became a concert favorite. "Kix Are for Kids" creatively merged the name of the band with two popular cereals of the 1960s and 1970s, Kix and the Trix Rabbit. "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" became the band's most popular concert song, always with a unique ad-lib performance by lead vocalist Steve Whiteman. With this album, the rock and roll style of Kix was established.
DOOMSDAY DIARIES is a progressive/psychedelic ("progedelic") rock band dedicated to re-defining the course of today's rock music scene. Founded in 2009 by the TWINS OF DOOM, now 16 year old twin brothers J VON DOOM (Jason Sproviero) and THE EVIL TWIN (Sean Sproviero), and featuring the incredible vocal talents of ELLA HESTER, DOOMSDAY DIARIES performances focus upon the ethereal, atmospheric compositions of the Twins of Doom.
DOOMSDAY DIAIRES burst on to the Jersey Music Scene in the Spring of 2011 with a triumphant performance at the 2011 BAMBOOZLE MUSIC FESTIVAL at MetLife Stadium. Since then, DOOMSDAY DIARIES has been performing regularly at various Northern New Jersey music venues, including The Bergen PAC, Mexicali Live, Dingbatz and The Stanhope House, as well as several appearances at the legendary STONE PONY. In June, 2012, DOOMSDAY DIARIES was recognized as one of New Jersey's premier high school rock bands upon being named the Grand Prize Winner of the prestigious Fort Lee Film Commission Battle of the High School Bands. In 2013, DOOMSDAY DIARIES has been regularly featured in opening support roles for national touring artists the likes of Taproot, Zebra, Ellen Foley and The Jane Getter Band.
Musically the band's style ranges from symphonic to hard rock. Some of the band's recent albums have a similar sound to Nolan's earlier band, Shadowland.
Allmusic called them one of the dominant neo-prog groups of the 1990s.
Arena was founded in 1995 by Clive Nolan keyboardist of Pendragon and Shadowland, and Mick Pointer, the original drummer of Marillion, his tenure lasting from 1979 until 1983. The other founding members of the band were guitarist Keith More, vocalist John Carson, and bassist Cliff Orsi. Orsi was replaced by John Jowitt (of IQ) in the band's inaugural year, whilst Carson and More left the band in 1996 and 1997, and were replaced by Paul Wrightson and John Mitchell (of Frost*) respectively. Both Jowitt and Wrightson left the band in 1998, to be replaced by Ian Salmon and Rob Sowden, creating the band's most stable lineup to date (from 1998 until 2010). This lineup came to an end with Paul Manzi replacing Sowden in 2010. In 2011, Jowitt rejoined the band to replace the departing Salmon.
