Alex Shillo is a multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter.

One of Alex's many influences is The Boss. While Alex is currently in the Studio working on his solo/original music (Which you're all gonna love) he will be playing some Northeast dates with his band Badlands. He's not an impersonator, he's a talented musician that loves playing Bruce's great music, and will also be showcasing 1 or 2 of his own original songs.

In addition, Alex's dad Carl Shillo is the founder/leader of the national act Silverado. In the late 70's and early 80's Silverado was signed to CBS records, had songs on the Billboard charts, toured the world with Steppenwolf and a bunch others. Recently Silverado (With Alex on Rhythm Guitar and support Vocals) toured up and down the East Coast opening for major acts like Big & Rich, Jerrod Niemann, and many others with Silverado.

In Badlands Alex is backed by some of the areas top-notch musicians from Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island who have performed with artists such as Clarence Clemons of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, Aretha Franklin, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Johnny Mathis, Gloria Gaynor, and John Cafferty to name a few. Their ability to capture the essence of "The Boss' both with their spot-on vocal harmonies and advanced instrumental abilities makes them the top choice to perform the music of Bruce Springsteen.
