Big name band performances, concerts and other events often require banner printing, flyer printing, and brochure printers to announce and celebrate the event, provide the audience with information, and advertise products associated with the event. Poster printing is also commonly used at such activities.
Skid Row, who took the world by storm in the first half of the 1990s, was born in 1987. At that time, Skid Row was a garage band located in Toms River, New Jersey. By 1989, the band’s debut album sold more than 5 million copies in the United States. The success of their first album was followed by a world tour. They were also the first heavy metal band to have an album reach #1 on the Billboard charts in 1992 with their second album.
The band parted ways in 1995, but founding members Scotti Hill, Rachel Bolan and Snake Sabo reunited and brought singer Johnny Solinger in to replace previous lead vocal sensation, Sebastian Bach. Skid Row consists of:
Johnny Solinger—Lead Vocals
