Our Story

Return to Paradise's lead singer Anthony Paul flawlessly recreates both Dennis Deyoung and Tommy Shaw's impressive vocals and sizzles on stage while keyboardist Robert Epstein thrills audiences using stacks of synthesizers to reproduce Dennis Deyoung's famous keyboards with flair and vigor.


Guitarist and music educator James Erickson dynamically emulates with precision, the technique of the guitar riffs that made Tommy Shaw and James Young guitar masters.

Guitarist Ron Torina pairs up with James Erickson bringing the detail and matching tones of Tommy Shaw and James Young helping to create a powerful Guitar section for Return to Paradise.

Rounding out the band, driving the beat is the thunderous and at all times boisterous rhythm section comprised with bass guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Paul John Cruz with over 30 yrs experience along with drummer/vocalist Sean Minardi who brings masterful drumming and vocal skills. Together they truly have collective soul giving the band a supreme solid foundation.

Our Mission

Return to Paradise focuses on Styx's trademark high-pitched harmonies, mixed with the dual-guitar assault, solid rhythm section as the driving force of talent with influential, flashy keyboards... Come Sail Away, Renegade, Lorelei, Lady, Grand Illusion, Fooling Yourself, Don't Let It End, Snow blind, Babe, Why Me, Mr.Roboto, Rockin'The Paradise are just a few of the many high-end radio songs lingering in our hearts and minds forever.
