SonnyBoy has been singing since a young boy.
His music is soul-felt; any person who has seen SonnyBoy perform can sense this. He has a distinctive voice and style that is compared to Joe Cocker with sex appeal. One major influence in SonnyBoy’s singing is who he grew up listening to, John Fogerty. This is why “Born on A Bayou” is the only cover that SSX performs. Unlike a typical cover, SSX twisted the melody and changed the style to a unique remix. He says, “When the people watch the show, I always give them my best. I want them to not only hear and see, but feel the passion that I feel when I sing.” Mission accomplished!! Not to mention making the ladies go crazy!
Favorite thing to do when you’re bored: Masturbate
Favorite Band: ACDC
Favorite Song: Rock & Roll Aint Noise Pollution
Favorite Song By SSX: Alcohol Disease

Bec has been playing bass since 15. She has played all different styles of music that include: Rock, Punk, Alternative, Blues, Surf, Ska, and Metal. Her mastery of various styles of music allowed her to be honored as “Bassist of the Year” at the L.A. Music Awards, 2003.

Bec plays with an over the top method which is distinctly uncommon and says, “I want people to watch me play and say, ‘She can handle that thing.’” Self-taught, she also studied with Ron Eglit, who plays bass with Dick Dale.
