The FIXX and Fastball

THE FIXX
Formed in London in 1979, The FIXX are a British rock band whose hits include “One Thing Leads to Another,” “Saved by Zero,” “Are We Ourselves?” and “Secret Separation” (all of which made the U.S. Top 20), as well as early MTV video hits “Red Skies” and “Stand or Fall.” The band, which still features the classic line up of Cy Curnin, Adam Woods, Rupert Greenall, Jamie West-Oram and Dan K. Brown, are heralded as one of the most innovative bands to come out of the MTV era. In concert, The FIXX deliver that same sonic authenticity fans have come to expect from their recorded performances. The FIXX are the real deal.

FASTBALL

Fastball is an American rock band that formed in Austin, Texas in 1995. The band originally called themselves “Magneto U.S.A.” but changed their name after signing with Hollywood Records. In 1998, their album All the Pain Money Can Buy reached platinum sales within six months of its release, and stayed on the Billboard 200 chart for a year. In addition, the group has been nominated for two Grammy Awards – Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for “The Way”, and Best Long Form Music Video for their promotional video “The Way”. They also received five The Austin Chronicle awards: 1998’s Album of the Year, Best Video, Best Single/EP, Band of the Year, and 1995’s Best Pop Band.
