Los Angeles, CA – Fresh off a European run Stevie Rachelle and TUFF will finally play the West Coast.
TUFF frontman Stevie Rachelle and founding member Todd "Chase" Chaisson (bass) will bring TUFF back to the Sunset Strip for their first appearance together in years. It will be only the second time in 20 years that the duo have performed together on the legendary boulevard they once claimed as home turf.
TUFFreleased their 8th CD "What Comes Around Goes Around Again" earlier in the year. The disc features a list of 80s stars as guests, including George Lynch (Dokken / Lynch Mob) and Stephen Pearcy (Ratt). After a run of 23 shows throughout Europe over recent months the band is now back stateside. TUFF kick off their West Coast run at "Malones" in Orange County on Friday July 27th.
The band will also appear at the Annual "Cruefest" at the "Whisky-A-Go-Go" Saturday July 28th with fellow Sunset Strip legends LONDON. Other bands appearing include DC4, Stonebreed, Gutterboys and Skinmask.

Wisconsin – TUFF frontman Stevie Rachelle heard it from a friend who – heard it from a friend who. That’s right. C.W.A. will support REO Speedwagon on Labor Day weekends finale "Waterfest"in Oshkosh to close out the summer long weekly festival. Stevie Rachelle will head back to his native home in Wisconsin to perform with his world famous Green Bay Packerstribute group C.W.A. (Cheeseheads With Attitude) to end Pre-Season and kick off the regular NFL season.
The band celebrated their 15 year anniversary in 2011 with the release of the bands 5th CD "Green N’ Gold Hits". The CD had a regional hit with "Packer Face" which was a direct take on "Poker Face" by Lady Gaga. The group was a fun spoof back in 1996, but timing and luck generated multiple hit singles, and record level sales of CDs. This of course way back when CDs actually sold. The band has achieved star status with locals, and on a national level have appeared on ESPN, in USA Today and performed at the Super Bowl XXXII Pep Rally in San Diego California.
