MAXX WARRIOR was highly successful on the East Coast club circuit in the early to mid-'80s. The band performed original material as well as cover songs from all of the top metal acts of the day. The group's four-song EP from 1985 (Executive Records) has become quite a sought-after collectable for metal fans worldwide.
In the early '90s, Snare and Perry went on to commercial success in the band FIREHOUSE.
This was the first time MAXX WARRIOR has performed since 1987.
