The J. Geils Band, Aerosmith, Boston, The Joe Perry Project, Farrenheit, Jon Butcher Axis, Bellevue Cadillac.

This is truly an incredible lineup of musicians, from guitarist J. Geils, bass player Danny Klein and Magic Dick of the J. Geils Band to Barry Goudreau, formerly of the band Boston, Joe Pet of the Joe Perry Project and Doug Bell of Bellevue Cadillac. Vocals for this band are shared by guitar hero Jon Butcher of the Jon Butcher Axis, Charlie Farren of The Joe Perry Project and Farrenheit, and David Hull, who has performed with Aerosmith and The Joe Perry Project.
