At age 12 Tony received his first acoustic guitar instead of a switch blade knife. It was his Mother's way of trying to keep him out of trouble. He graduated to an electric guitar thanks to his Pops and he spent many hours in his room learning to play Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Iron Maiden. Tony began singing a little at age 17 but joined his first original band as the 2nd guitar player. He sang backups and soon he sang the intro to one of the songs realizing, he didn’t do too bad of a job! Breaking off into a speed metal band called “Outrage”, singing and playing guitar for many years, his skills became increasingly better. Soon he ended up in an 80’s tribute band screaming his ass off and producing a high-energy stage presence that will keep you on the edge of your seat, singing and banging your head til you... Shout At The Devil!

(on lead guitar) got his first taste of Rock & Roll when he was a young boy thanks to a few older brothers who were into the music of Cream, Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, and The Who to name a few. This music was deeply absorbed into Nick's consciousness and would fuel a lifelong passion for music. Nick started playing guitar at 14, and shortly after played in garage bands before performing in a power trio for 800 people in a large auditorium at his high school talent show. Nick's group did not win the contest, but made him a hit with the high school kids, and it made him an instant outlaw with the high school authority figures. After high school, Nick relocated to LA and shortly thereafter began playing the Hollywood club circuit to increasingly larger audiences and prominent legendary clubs.

At an early age, Seann saw Motley Crue in Albuquerque. Watching Tommy Lee, Seann decided that being a rock star would be more fun than a fighter pilot, which was his original plan. So as soon as he could afford it, Seann bough his first drum kit and began learning to play in the spare room at his mom's house. When the family moved to California, Seann started off playing in local party bands, which lead to bigger bands and playing on world famous stages like the Whiskey A Go-Go, the Troubador, and more.This even led to a few commercials and video clips used in TV shows like "Myth Busters." Now he gets to tour the world playing the part of the man who inspired him as a child in the world famous Motley 2 Tribute band.
