The Del Fuegos were a 1980s roots rock band formed in Boston, MA. They recorded for Warner Bros. Records and toured internationally with acts including Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, INXS and ZZ Top. The band released four studio albums and achieved mainstream success with their songs “Don’t Run Wild”, “Backseat Nothing” and “I Still Want You”. Members include Dan Zanes on guitar and vocals, Warren Zanes on guitar, Tom Lloyd on bass and vocals, and Woody Geissman on drums. The Del Fuegos stopped recording and touring in 1989, and had one brief reunion tour in 2012. They are now reuniting for the first time in a decade to mark The Channel’s 42nd anniversary event, describing The Channel as “one of the clubs that raised them and made them love Boston rock and roll.”
