Hey! I'm Tig. I come from the Poughkeepsie (Hudson Valley) area. I'm a rocker whose favorite bands include Guns n Roses, Van Halen, Buckcherry, AC/DC, Alice in chains, Metallica and I love '80s hair metal. In my free time I like to go to the rock shows and knock a few cold beers back at the local bars. I also DJ rock/metal nights out at the bars on occasion. I'm excited to be rockin' out afternoons 3-7 p.m. at Q103 Albany. Check out my new show, Tig's Metal Box, Saturday nights at Midnight.
