Driving Force - ADAM & THE ANTZ is an historic re-enactment of the original ANTZ in real time (every detail is enacted exactly 20 years after). This is NOT a cover band, it is a "historic recreation!" Down to every detail, from the original 1977+ fliers to meticulous studying of live bootleg recordings, we strive to honestly recreate the original set-lists on the original dates in the original clothes and in character as the original band members.

Driving Force - well, as far as keeping us all going... it's pretty much a joint effort there. we all try to encourage and help each other out all the time. as far as who started it and who keeps things organized, that's me. i'm the manager and publicist for the band. and if you were referring to musical influences... hmmm... well when we first started we were influenced by other bands i guess, like depeche mode, erasure, alphaville, and gothics like siouxsie & the banshees and the cure, and of course the great classical composers like mozart, bach, and beethoven (and many others), but as we've progressed in our music, we've found our inspiration comes more from our own experiences and emotions. it's like our lives write the music for us almost. we've always felt that our music has to be inspired, and when we try to force it, we end up sounding like someone else, or else we'll end up hating what we wrote, so we always just wait till the music comes to us and then we write it all down. it has to come from our hearts and our feelings or else it's not our music. at least that's how we feel about it! we take it all quite seriously, and we really put alot of ourselves into each song we do. well, that's a long answer for a short question!
