The original renegade of classic rock, Styx is headed to the Pechanga Resort & Casino. This band formed during the 1960s in the windy city of Chicago by twin brothers Chuck and John Panozzo, along with their neighbor Dennis DeYoung. The band was originally named The Tradewinds, and later was called TW4 before finally settling on the name Styx in ’72. This name originated from the river in Greek mythology that runs between Earth and the Underworld across the land of the dead. However, Styx is anything but dead. On the contrary, these prog-rockers are still very much alive and kicking even after 50 years, 16 top 40 hits and countless world tours. Back in its heyday, Styx filled up arenas, but this band is still high-energy, and they will always continue on the path of taking rock ‘n ‘roll on the road to this day. Styx has put out more than 15 albums including four that went back to back multi-platinum with hits like “Lady,” “Too Much Time on My Hands,” “Come Sail Away” and “Renegade,” just to name a handful. Progressive and art rock with a mix of power ballads and triad vocals is what makes the trademark Styx sound that you can point out anytime, anyplace. Come rediscover the soundtrack to your teenage years at this show with this classic sound of the ‘70s! (Dulce Balandran)
