James Young

In 1995, James Young hit the clubs in the midwest with a hot new band, the James Young Group. JYG lit up the small stages and played to packed houses as generations of Styx fans flocked from all over the country.


China Club
JYG's appearance at the China Club in Chicago was for a charity fundraiser, along with several other bands. These live shots from the China Club were my first glimpse of the band live. I was amazed by the talent that JY recruited for this band, and they even blew me away with their performances of several Styx tunes. (Queen of Spades & Lorelei sounded phenomenal!)


Bogart's Place
Later that same year, JYG performed a show in front of a packed house at Bogart's Place in Minneapolis. Here are some live shots from the Bogart's show as well.


JY Talks
I also had the opportunity to interview JY before his China Club performance. He answered questions about Styx, Tommy & Dennis' solo projects, and about his hopes for JYG.
