Get to know the MMRBQ 2023 bands:

  • Vixen77

    Vixen77 is one of MMR’s Local Shots Artists of the Month. They’re a Philadelphia-based rock group. Their style is pretty akin to the first wave of punk mixed with hard-driving rock.  They’re a badass girl band that will rock your socks off.

  • Tigercub

    Tigercub are a three-piece rock band from the UK. Their newest album, “The Perfume of Decay,” will be released 2nd June 2023.

  • Finger Eleven

    This is an MMRBQ alum that we’re so excited to have back. You know them from their hits “Paralyzer” and “One Thing.” They’ve been teasing some new music coming our way soon…so stay tuned.

  • Dirty Honey

    Dirty Honey is a huge friend of the station. In fact, our very own Jacky Bam Bam got up on stage with them last time they were at MMRBQ. Let’s hope Jacky’s antics are at bay, this time…(NOT)!

  • Ayron Jones

    Ayron Jones was just in town last year and he’s back! Just like us, he can’t get enough of this city. Brent Porche also got to see Ayron on the Shiprocked cruise he took this year. His bassist is FROM THE AREA and is so excited to be back.

  • Larkin Poe

    Larkin Poe! These gals are amazing. They were recently on the Preston and Steve Show and even performed an unreleased (now released) song. They also promised Jacky Bam Bam a record-shopping-day-out the next time they visited Philly. That better happen!

  • Billy Idol

    His newest four-song-EP “The Cage” is stellar. Billy Idol is a legend and we’re so happy to have him. This punk-rocker is sure to take the house down. And you surely won’t be “dancing with yourself,” when he’s playing. Everyone else will be, too!

  • Shinedown

    Oh. hey, we know these guys! Hi Shinedown. We love you! They are no stranger to being part of the MMRBQ lineup, and we’re a-okay with that. We play their music like, all the time. Plus, our DJs have really gotten to know the band personally. They’re great people and their music ROCKS!
