Born out of the ashes of the UK post-punk scene, The Cult evolved to become one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the late 20th century, selling millions of albums, headlining arenas and stadiums around the world, infusing innovative possibilities into the worlds of music and art, and quickly ascending through the ranks of the indie music world to achieve global status. As early as its first American tour in 1984, The Cult became one of the handful of important bands in the U.S. post-modern and hard rock communities.

Formed in Brixton, London in 1983 as Death Cult, The Cult's music transformed from punk rock to post-punk, psychedelia, heavy dance music, and transcendental hard rock. As one journalist noted, "Using a few simple riffs and images, The Cult creates an entire environment, one more exciting and stimulating than our own." And that may just be what separates The Cult from other artists.

The constant core of The Cult is Astbury and guitarist/composer Billy Duffy. Attitude incarnate, the chemistry between these two vastly different artists - equal-parts genuine affection and palpable tension - remains the source of their long-standing partnership. Duffy grounds Astbury's esoteric side with a hard rock perspective, and there is no doubt that at all times, these two have each other's backs.

As America's #1 Gold Record Award winning group of all time, and that's in every category, KISS can easily be named one of rock's most influential bands. The Rock N Roll Hall of Famers have released 44 albums and sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. Honored by their peers, KISS received the illustrious ASCAP Founders Award in 2015. Over 40 years of record-breaking global tours have brought KISS to their fans. They kicked off their recent world tour with 5 headlining shows in Japan and a #1 single in 2014 "Samurai Son" with pop group, Momoiro Clover Z. Their 40th Anniversary World tour also rocked North America, South America and Australia. Additionally, once a year the "KISS Army" becomes the "KISS Navy" as fans from across the globe board the KISS Kruise (this year will be their 5th voyage). KISS teamed up with Warner Brothers in 2014 to create the well-received original movie ScoobyDoo and KISS: Rock And Roll Mystery. Other high-profile appearances have included the Super Bowl, the Winter Olympics, Rockin' The Corps concert, a FOX alliance with KISS appearing in multiple episodes of Family Guy, plus two special guest performances on American Idol finales. KISS has been featured in major advertising and marketing campaigns for John Varvatos, Google Play, Hello Kitty— even appearing in a Dr. Pepper Super Bowl commercial and advertising campaign in support of their Hottest Show On Earth tour. This year represents the 3rd season of the LA KISS Arena Football League team bringing professional football back to Los Angeles. KISS founding band members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have also entered the culinary world by opening a string of successful restaurants aptly named Rock & Brews. KISS is dedicated to numerous Veterans Organizations including: The Wounded Warriors Project, The USO, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce "Hire A Hero" program, The Legacy Organization in Australia, Help For Heroes United Kingdom and The Dr. Pepper Snapple Groups Wounded Warriors Support Foundations.

Moist is an iconic Canadian alternative rock band with numerous awards and accolades to their name and over 1.3 Million albums sold. The launch of their first album Silver in 1994 sold over 40,000 copies in Canada alone. The 4x Platinum album garnered international attention with hit singles 'Push", "Silver", and "Believe Me". In 1996, Moist released their second album, Creature which included songs such as 'Leave it Alone", 'Resurrection", and "Tangerine." The hits were featured on the MuchMusic rotation list and led to a 3x platinum certification in Canada. In 1999, their third album Mercedes 5 and Dime was released receiving yet another platinum certification. Shortly after releasing a compilation album in 2001, the band underwent an unplanned hiatus for over a decade. Frontman David Usher went on to record a very succesful solo career with several solo albums released between 2001 and 2012, and perhaps is best known for his certified platinum album, Morning Orbit, released in 200 featuring the hit single "Black Black Heart", Moist officially reestablished in June 2013, and the band released their most recent album, Glory Under Dangerous Skies, in 2014, which gained popularity on the Canadian rock/alternative charts with songs 'Mechanical' and 'Black Roses'.

Over the years, Moist has received two Juno Awards, multiple Q107 Canada's Rock Awards, and two MuchMusic Video Awards. The six person band consists of frontman and lead vocals of the group David Usher, guitarist Mark Makoway, keyboard and backing vocals Kevin Young, guitar and backing vocals Jonathan Gallivan, drums Francis Fillion, and Louis Lalancette on bass.
