Brad grew up in South Austin, and he picked up a guitar at a very young age.  With lots of awards, Brad is dedicated to providing impassioned vocals and his powerful voice, extended range, and audience persona makes him well suited as the band’s lead singer and front man.

Bassist – Jim Sikes,  began playing Bass at age 14 in Dayton, Ohio. The evolution of “Album Rock Era” gave him great exposure to talented Ohio players. He performed in a wide variety of genres in Ohio including Rock, Blues, Jazz, and Country.  Attending college at Oklahoma university allowed Jim to perform with guitarist great Joe Bob Nelson, as well as many of the touring bands who were doing hits of the 70’s and 80’s and occasionally would work with various combos bands. Jim became a member of LixBox in the summer of 2011. One of his first performances for LixBox was at Carlos and Charlie’s where the lineup was Ambrosia, John Ford Coley, and Terry Sylvester. Living in Austin has allowed Jim to perform with a wide variety of great Austin bands and his love for the instrument shows with every live performance.

Drummer – Tony Vacca, discovered his passion for playing drums early on in life and has never stopped (ask his Mom!).  Taking years of professional lessons helped him along the path, but his true mentor, Mike Szwedo from St. Louis, opened his eyes and exposed a whole new world of percussion styles that enabled Tony to develop a solid and unique blues and classic rock back beat that entices the audience to get up and Move!.  Tony honed his skills over the next 9 years gigging along the west coast based in the South San Francisco Bay with progressive rock and dance cover bands.  He has also performed in both France and Tokyo but, he could no longer resist coming home to the Live Music Capital of the World!  In the summer of 2013, Tony joined LixBox. His influences include Neil Peart, Chad Wackerman, John Bonham, and Bill Bruford…………BTW, Tony plays Loud!
