Biography

Since 2005, The Lost Boys have taken Texas by storm... setting club records and entertaining the masses with non-stop 80s bliss hits! With each performance, they bring the 80s back to life... covering all the familiar pop hits, glam rock and new wave/punk of the ME Decade-- performing them to perfection just as the original artists did.

The Lost Boys have played every major venue in Houston and were a weekly staple in Houston's Midtown for four years. From the House of Blues to the Toyota Center to Discovery Green to every major music venue in town - the Lost Boys have left their mark. Most recently, the band opened and closed the show for A Flock of Seagulls in the summer of 2016!

Lead Vocalist Renee Edd sang before she spoke.

She has worked with several popular Houston bands like Primal Funktion, Surrender Dorothy, & Pocket Change. She's also been part of several original pop-rock projects including 'Osiris'. Her original music has been heard on local radio and internet radio. She's toured all over Texas and performed in places as far away as Paris, London, Puerto Vallarta, & Scotland as well as all over the US in groovy cities like New Orleans, Nashville, New York & Orlando.

She's worked with MTV, Rolling Stone, and ABC - New York. Her other gigs include directing and producing award-winning film, commercials, corporate video projects and coaching acting for film.

With her operatic and broadway training, the only thing she can't sing is Death Metal... oh, well. We all have our limitations.

Guitarist Michael Lee was born in San Antonio, Texas & weened on hard rock and heavy metal... Favorite influences were Judas Priest, Van Halen, AC/DC, Styx, Night Ranger, and Def Leppard. The 80s bug bit him hard-- and has since never let go...

A champion of the stage, he studied acting and theatre in London at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. But graduating with a degree in Advertising, he went on to film and video
pursuits... leaving his passion for music and acting behind.

As a television writer, editor, and Emmy-nominated
producer, he's produced "The E! True Hollywood Story," "TV Tales," "Rank," "Fashion Emergency" and "Wild On" for E! Networks, "Texas Justice" for Fox, and locally, "The Debra Duncan Show" for ABC/Buena Vista Television. And a host of sports events and travelogues for national cable networks...

And Mike has done his part professionally to keep the 80s alive. Producing a special "Back To The Eighties" tribute in 2002, he brought the original band, Berlin, to Houston to perform on the show. (Hey, where do you think "Bands Reunited" got their inspiration?) And in 1999, he co-produced the reunion concert of The Go-Go's live from NYC. (yes, Belinda Carlisle fell in love with him... how could she resist?)

In 2003, after returning from another TV stint in LA, he formed The Lost Boys to bring the "80s Retro Wave" of West Hollywood back east to the Bayou City. The band represents an opportunity to return to his musical roots while remaining at home in the entertainment spotlight.

Keyboardist Andrew Richardson oozes Nashville pride. Not only did he pick up a degree in music from Belmont University in Music City, but he also played in a country-blues band there for five years ("uh, stick with us kid... you'll go places.") And, he hung out with the beautiful daughters of Mr. Monday Night Football, Hank Williams, Jr. (Yes, Holly Williams!)

Bassist, Jason Ward Jason was an original member of the Lost Boys in 2003, but
true to form-- he got lost. He resurfaced in 2006, and the rest is Lost Boys history. (Tune in to VH1 'Behind The Music: The Lost Boys' to find out more... in 2020)

In the meantime, Jason Ward’s story goes something like this....beginning in the humble, swampy backwoods of Deweyville, TX, where a combination of Waylon Jennings
and Barry Manilow (don’t ask, he’ll just laugh rudely) formed his musical roots…until the unthinkable happened-- MTV.

Combine passion and intensity: his name is Tony Rodriguez Jr. His playing style speaks for itself. With deep roots to 80’s genre of classic rock, metal to sleaze rock and in between his love for music drives his desire to remain in the music scene in Houston TX where he has lived growing up influenced by diversity of a cultural rich city.

His influences range from some of the early jazz clinics he attended with Billy Cobham, Dave Weckl and Anton Fig. Inspired by early 50’s, 60’s and 70’s rock and don’t forget disco!

So, when this group gets together-- the talent really flows! And everyone has a rockin' good time.

What are you waiting for? GET LOST with us!
