QUIET RIOT is a Rock & Roll phenomenon. Famously described as the first heavy metal band to top the pop chart at #1 on Billboard magazine, the Los Angeles quartet became an overnight sensation thanks to their monster 1983 smash album Metal Health.

Known for such songs as “Cum On Feel The Noize” and “(Bang Your Head) Metal Health” QUIET RIOT will bring its high energy performance to the Burton Cummings Theatre on August 16.


The story of QUIET RIOT begins in 1980 when Kevin DuBrow formed a new band under his own name, working with Frankie Banali and a  variety of musicians over the next few years before  signing with Pasha/CBS Records, reverting back to the QUIET RIOT moniker, and entering the studio with new guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bassist Chuck Wright to start work on a new album. The year was 1982 and, following Randy Rhoads’ well documented death, former henchman Rudy Sarzo left Ozzy, replacing Chuck Wright who is the bass player on record for both the “Metal Health” and “Don’t Wanna Let You Go” tracks, to complete the lineup and sessions for what would become 1983’s Metal Health.

Frankie Banali’s history with QUIET RIOT began in 1982 and he has the distinction of being the only member of QUIET RIOT to have recorded on every QUIET Riot release from 1983’s Metal Health through 2006’s Rehab. After nearly three years since the loss of his friend and band mate Kevin DuBrow, and with careful consideration, soul searching and with the blessings and support of Kevin DuBrow’s family, Frankie decided to continue his journey and the musical legacy of QUIET RIOT along with Bassist Chuck Wright, guitarists Alex Grossi and Vocalist James Durbin.
