QUIET RIOT is a rock & roll phenomenon. Famously described as the first heavy metal band to top the pop charts, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album Metal Health. Their followup album Condition Critical went double platinum and the band continued to record and tour.

QUIET RIOT continues their historic journey with Metal Health founding member Frankie Banali who is joined by QUIET RIOT veteran bassist Chuck Wright and QUIET RIOT guitarist Alex Grossi from their last and most stable lineup. Their new vocalist, James Durbin, completes the QUIET RIOT lineup. James stepped into the public eye when he came in fourth place on American Idol on season ten. He was known as the “metal” guy and did a performance with Judas Priest on the show.


Bad Authority. Recapturing the true spirit of rock and roll with loud guitars, wailing vocals, and relentless energy. Influenced by artists such as KISS, Led Zeppelin, Ted Nugent, Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, and many more, Bad Authority delivers a rip-roaring, explosive rock and roll show to be enjoyed by listeners of all ages.

In 2014, Bad Authority took first place in the first statewide Battle of the Bands competition hosted by the Iowa Rock N’ Roll Music Association, which would kickstart their rock n’ roll careers. In 2016, Bad Authority would further establish themselves as a band to remember when they opened for a number of nationally-acclaimed rock acts including the Steve Miller Band, Ted Nugent, the Ron Keel Band, and more. 2017 brought a lot more fortune for Kyler, Ted and Miles when they were able to open for other rock giants such as Three Dog Night, Great White, Head East, Jackyl, and Wayland. The momentum continued into 2018 for Bad Authority as they opened for both Three Dog Night and Ted Nugent once more, KISS legend Gene Simmons, Christian heavy metal artist Stryper, and Nu Metal giants Papa Roach and Chevelle. 2019 saw Bad Authority playing with even more rock legends, such as the likes of Poison superstar Bret Michaels, as well as doing a significant number of their own outstanding shows.

2020 is looking promising to be Bad Authority’s most impressive year yet. The band is currently pushing the release of their electrifying 2019 EP, in addition to doing what they love the most, playing live. Bad Authority is anxiously awaiting to announce their most remarkable year yet for both live shows and appearances, and plan to continue to press on as ‘defenders of the faith’ to keep the spirit of rock n’ roll alive and well.
