Bostyx features guitarist and co-lead vocalist David Victor of BOSTON!
What do you get when you combine two great American classic rock artists BOSTON and STYX into one act? The answer is BOSTYX, California’s very unique tribute the feel-good and highly-polished hit music that dominated the radio in the 1970s and 1980s. BOSTYX pays tribute to the music and vibe of two American pop music icons BOSTON and STYX with a high-energy show that is sure to please rock ‘n roll lovers.
BOSTYX features guitarist/vocalist DAVID VICTOR of the actual multi-platinum band BOSTON (www.bandboston.com). David Victor was featured on BOSTON’s summer 2012 40-date tour of North America and in 2013 at the sold-out Boston Strong Benefit with Aerosmith at the Boston Garden in front of an audience of nearly 20,000. David’s vocals and guitar playing make this tribute to the amazing music of BOSTON and STYX as real as it can get!
Perhaps no two 1970’s era bands better defined the all-American good time summer classic rock sound more than Boston and Styx. These artists took rock music to places it had never been, with a radio-friendly and highly-polished sound, with vocals and harmonies that set the standard for every popular classic rock band that followed.
Now BOSTYX re-creates the amazing music of these two classic rock icons with a full complement of world-class musicians, reproducing Boston’s soaring guitar harmonies and lightning-fast keyboard runs as well as the lush backing vocals and theatrical style of Styx. Handling the distinctive lead vocals of Styx co-founder Dennis DeYoung is multi-talented drummer and lead vocalist, Glenn Jost. And lead vocalist/guitarist David Victor of the actual band BOSTON handles the vocals of two of the best-loved rock tenors of all-time, Boston’s Brad Delp and Styx’s Tommy Shaw.
BOSTYX faithfully performs the best-loved hits of two amazing American classic rock icons including songs such as “More Than A Feeling”, “Blue Collar Man”, “Amanda”, “Don’t Look Back”, “The Best Of Times”, “Lady”, “Peace Of Mind”, “Renegade”, “Foreplay/Long Time”, “A Man I’ll Never Be” and many more.
Client Testimonials for BOSTYX
“In the 19 years of having the Department picnic we’ve had many bands play. The level of quality and professionalism you performed at was absolutely the best we’ve had. As the chair of the picnic I hear all the comments from the committee and attendees. The unanimous opinion was you guys flat rocked the picnic. Everyone I spoke with loved the music set and performance BOSTYX put on. Having seen both BOSTON and STYX several times you are definitely the closest one could come to seeing the actual bands. Having BOSTYX play this year has set the bar for next year’s picnic chair to beat, which I don’t see happening!”
-Lieutenant Michael Maddux, Riverside County Sheriff’s Department
“The Matthews Alive Festival will never be the same–you guys rock! From the moment I saw your promo video, I knew your music and sound were exactly what we were looking for. I refuse to use the term ‘tribute band’ — you are worlds apart from any other tribute band out there, and it absolutely does not do you guys justice! Spot-on vocals, incredible energy, professionalism, stage presence–and wonderful to work with. Attendees continue to send us their positive comments–Matthews loves you, and wants to have you back! Event Directors out there–if you want a band to take your event to another level, if you want a guaranteed success and explosive experience on your stage–book BOSTYX!
-Lee Anne Moore, Executive Director, Matthews Alive Festival, Matthews, NC
Thank YOU!!! You guys were awesome, not only musically, but also just total pros with great attitudes and I really appreciate that! Thank you for making our first weekend a total SMASH!

Just a note to tell you how extremely impressed my staff and I were with your Bostyx show at Marquee 15. As you know, we book all the top tribute bands including Atomic Punks, DSB, Led Zepagain and Aeromyth and I can say unreservedly that Bostyx is right up there with these great acts. Most importantly, our audience LOVED you guys! Needless to say, we can’t wait to have you guys back.
- Ben, Talent Buyer, Marquee 15
Guys- I am really not into tribute bands and am pretty burned out on both of those bands’ music. I got dragged out to the Belly Up last night and I have to tell you how AMAZED I was with your band…all stellar players/singers and more importantly, the energy was just off the charts. Total entertainment and live production of music that is not that easy to nail down vocally if you are doing it right. BIG props gents! I am spreading the word…when will you be back at the Belly Up?”
- Rob Hanzlik
