In 2020, he launched Keeping the Blues Alive Records, an independent record label that promotes and supports the talent of blues musicians.

A Little About Styx

“The Greatest Rock n Roll Band from Chicago” (in my opinion), Styx formed in 1970 and have had a successful career throughout the late 1970's and early 1980's that includes five consecutive multi-platinum albums and sixteen U.S. top 40 singles. Songs like “Lady”, “Come Sail Away”, “The Grand Illusion”, “Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)”, “Renegade”, and “Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)” are all staples at classic rock radio. The band has continued to be a popular touring act with the current lineup of James "J.Y." Young on guitar, Tommy Shaw on vocals and guitar, Lawrence Gowan on vocals and keyboards, Ricky Phillips on bass, Todd Sucherman on drums, and additional guitarist Will Evankovich. Original bassist Chuck Panozzo is also a member of the band and appears on occasion at shows.
