Formed in 1985 in Akron, OH when McKenzie, by chance, met Dave Jackson in the rubbery refinery where both men worked.  Foxx quickly grew into one of Northeast Ohio’s premier live rock acts, releasing two successful albums, “FOXX” (1989), and “STICK IT OUT” (1991).  Their first single, “P.T.L.”, landed on syndicated Dallas based metal station Z-Rock and was named “Shredder of the Week” in mid 1987. The bands first album debuted at No. 1 at the local music store chain Quonset Hut in May 1989, and one of its songs, “Can’t Say No”, was played on another syndicated radio show, Metalshop, as well as appearing on the indie horror film “Robot Ninja” along with another track, “Night Machine”. The band’s 2nd album, “Stick It Out”, did nearly as well, debuting at No. 3 at the Quonset Hut Chain in March 1991, and three of its songs, “Love or Money”, “Wine Me Dine Me”, and “Need Your Love”, received solid airplay from Canton, OH. station WRQK Rock 107. By 1992 Foxx called it quits at the height of the grunge era, but reunited in December 2012 as a side project when FireHouse has down time.
