Growing up on 70s & 80s hard rock, Greg Turner spent his time at local record stores seeking new bands' music that became his influences for his writing and playing style. Citing Cheap Trick, Motley Crue and KISS as his early influences, Greg began playing guitar at age 15. After witnessing a Motley Crue concert, he switched to bass, being influenced by the rhythmic qualities of the instrument, and also the showmanship of bassists such as Nikki Sixx, Pete Way and later on, Sean Yseult (White Zombie), and Duff McKagan (Guns N Roses). Greg's style is simple, yet tight with the kick and snare drum, creating a bottom end that compliments the song, and showcases the front players. A team player, Greg is about the importance of the song structure, with writing, recording and producing skills he’s honed in his 2520 Recording Studio since the early 2000s, where he’s engineered and produced multiple albums and projects for clients. In addition to Ten Cent Revenge, which he started with song writing partner Josh Decker, Greg is also playing bass for several other musical projects including Lincoln Nebraska's The Rewind, Tacoma Washington’s US, Seattle Washington’s Ninety Nine Nightmares and Phoenix Arizona’s American Headtrip. The Rewind, who played the 2019 Hollywood Silver Screen Festival and the legendary Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood California, has given Greg an outlet to record different musical styles and participate in songwriting that is not based on his own compositions. Greg’s previous projects Mushroom Bruize and Saints of Lust gained him veteran status on all stage sizes, from small to arena-sized stages with Creed, Rob Halford, Ratt, Buckcherry, Powerman 5000, Tantric, Bulletboys, LA Guns, Saliva, Nashville Pussy, and Faster Pussycat among many others. Greg has been endorsed through Fernandes and Minark Guitars, and utilizes an array of gear that includes Fender, Jackson, Spector and Ibanez. His live rig is primarily Genz Benz and Ampeg.
Born and raised in Nebraska, Josh Decker discovered Rock n’ Roll at a young age and has been performing in bands since he was eight years old. Taking inspiration initially from country groups he grew up hearing on radio like Brooks & Dunn, Alabama, and Lonestar, he was introduced to Aerosmith and from then on, everything changed. Since putting together his first group in elementary school, he has opened for artists as numerous and diverse as Buckcherry, Puddle of Mudd, Sister Hazel, Faster Pussycat, Molly Hatchet, Powerman5000, Pop Evil, Saving Abel, and countless others. His songs have appeared in a number of independent films and his passion for live performance has taken him to the Whisky A Go Go for a show with Tantric, a University festival with pop singer Bazzi, and innumerable venues across the Midwest. After relocating to Phoenix, Arizona, he co-founded Ten Cent Revenge with bandmate Greg Turner, where he is the lead singer, guitarist and keyboardist. Drawing heavily on his classic rock inspirations, particularly that of Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, and Black Oak Arkansas, Josh’s songwriting often contains a bluesy-hard rock edge that instills a sense of groove in the music. He is heavily influenced as a frontman by Jim Dandy and Robin Zander from Cheap Trick, and his live performances often bring comparisons to Sebastian Bach.
Jake Victor has been playing drums since he was very young, working his way through School of Rock and graduating to an instructor at the music center. The intricacy of his drumming is reminiscent of old school metal groups such as Metallica and Iron Maiden, with Nicko McBrain being Jake's top influence.
A mainstay of the Phoenix music scene, Steve Favela has been playing guitar in well-known acts for decades in the Valley. His most recent efforts include touring as Bang Tango's lead guitarist, playing at the M3 Rock Festival in 2019, and he is a fixture of Phoenix rock legends Color of Chaos, with whom he has shared the stage with countless national artists
