Today Brian and his Co-Host Wayne D. CEO Come Get It Records proudly welcome The Legend, Michael Tafoya, Two Time Epic Records Recording Artist, Guitarist and founding member of the Boyzz and the B'zz and Tafoya's Lost Boyzz.

Michael Tafoya has been a loud, raw and completely original part of the Chicago and National music scene for more than 30 years. Michael first gained international attention with Epic Recording Artists, "The Boyzz from Illinoizz", releasing their album "Too Wild To Tame" (Epic Records). National Tours followed with Aerosmith, Rush, REO Speedwagon and Judas Priest. Then in search of greener, creative pastures Michael formed "The B'zz" featuring Tommy Holland, Steve Riley, Dave Angel and Anatoly Halinkovich, (aka Tony Hall) (The Boyzz, "America's Most Wanted"), went on to make an appearance on Dick Clark's American Bandstand, making history being the only unsigned act to perform in the show's 35 year run. Then filmed a video for MTV "Get Up, Get Angry", toured the country all while writing music prolifically. In 2002  Tafoya's Lost Boyzz, a new band with a new, yet classic sound was formed. There's no denying the echoes of Led Zepplin, Santana, The Doors, Audio Slave, Rush, hard core blues and even The Boyzz in The Lost Boyzz sound. But from the soul of Classic Rock, The Lost Boyzz have managed to forge a completely new and innovative sound.

Tafoya's Lost Boyzz are pioneering a new genre best described as New Classic Rock. They work together as the ultimate power trio, complete with layers of vocal harmonies that seem so effortless. Michael has been rock and rolling for decades with nothing in his bones to slow his creative flow! Chris and Erik provide a rock solid foundation then Mike's guitar screams, rants, sears or soars, wherever it goes, you go with it. "We're a 3pc band but, we can make it sound like 6"
