Meet the Opening Act: Joy Island

Thu., Aug. 09, 2012 3:08 PM PDT by Erin La Rosa

Opening Act, Joy Island, Home Town Surprise E! Networks

On the next episode of Opening Act, get ready to party, dance and use massive amounts of hairspray!

That's because we're meeting Joy Island—a Boston-based group with a unique club sound whose main goal is to make you dance. Which makes them the perfect fit for headliner's LMFAO, right?

Well, maybe, because just as they get the biggest break of their life some of their hard partying gets in the way of their work ethic.

Here's what you need to know about the members of the group before the episode airs on Monday at 9/8c:

Member: Johnny Barbas

Musical Influences: Metallica, Motley Crue, Guns N' Roses, Limp Bizkit, Blink 182, Travis Barker, Biggie and Dr. Dre.

Preshow Ritual: "I like to warm on my drum pad, stretch out, do a few jumping jacks to get the blood flowing, and then a shot or two before I go on stage."

Member: Briana Summers

Musical Influences: Massive Attack, Crystal Castles, Madonna.

Preshow Ritual: "Shots n' glitter."

Member: Josh Bissell

Musical Influences: 'NSYNC, Dr. Dre, Blink 182, Motley Crüe, Biggie, Usher.

Preshow Ritual: "I like to be alone and clear my head. Short vocal warm up, and make sure I'm feeling loose. There's almost always a bottle of Jim Beam close by."

Like what you hear? Then make sure to tune in to an all new episode of Opening Act on Monday at 9/8c only on E!
