Mike Tafoya and The Boyzz to play Whiskey’s Roadhouse June 2
Thursday, June 2, Paul Kegel, the father of Todd Kegel, who recently passed away, will have a memorial in his son’s name at Whiskey’s Roadhouse, 3207 N. Main St., with a special performance by ’80s Rock Legend Mike Tafoya.
Mike Tafoya’s rock quest began as a guitarist in the mid-’70s with Chicago-area biker band the Boyzz from Illinoizz. Known for their loud and often destructive stage shows, The Boyzz were quickly signed to Epic Records. Mike then spent five years touring with The Boyzz opening for acts such as Aerosmith, Rush, Judas Priest, Rush and more. After The Boyzz, Mike landed another deal with Epic Records when he joined forces with Tommy Holland (later of Holland on Atlantic Records) and Steve Riley (later of W.A.S.P. and LA Guns) to form the B’zz, the band that was ahead of its time in defining ’80s Hard Rock.
With The Lost Boyzz and his return to the Chicago music scene, Mike is redefining the genre once again with a new sound that can only be described as The New Classic Rock. There will be door prizes and 50/50 raffles with proceeds going to the Sojourn House in Freeport. Whiskey’s Roadhouse hosts a Bike Night every Thursday night from 7-10 p.m. For more information about Mike Tafoya, visit www.tafoyaslostboyzz.com. Whiskey’s weekly Bike Night is sponsored by WXRX the X, 124 Customs, Kegel’s Motorcycles, Miller Lite, and Holiday Inn. Bike Night Specials are 25-cent Wings, $1 Drafts, $5 Pitchers, $1.25 Cans.
