“(The show) focuses mostly on the big four albums that Styx put out in the late ’70s, but it’s the other songs we add to the mix that really define the flavor of that show. And those change regularly,” singer Lawrence Gowansinger, who replaced original piano playing frontman Dennis DeYoung, told pressofatlanticcity.com
