Eve to Adam performing at the Emo's Austin in Austin, Texas on January 22, 2020, with Taki Sassaris, Alex Sassaris, Jeff Raines, Ilyn Nathaniel, and Ronny Gutierrez.
This group has a rather unusual history. In 1997, Taki Sassaris developed the name Eve to Adam and the idea for the band. He recruited his brother Alex and began working on the group. The duo hooked up with songsmith Desmond Child and signed to his company in 1998. Child had plans to groom Eve to Adam to be pop stars doing his material. This didn't really sit well with Taki Sassaris.

By late 1998, the brothers moved to New York and began rebuilding the band. They recruited more members there and began writing material and playing gigs in 1999. Then came a big break. Without so much as an album to back them up, the group was signed to the Maximum Rock tour. That was how they spent the summer of 1999. Then, seemingly, the floor dropped out. They lost their original bassist and their management company, along with the deal with Child. The year 2000 became a time of rebuilding for the group.

They recruited bassist AJ Pappas, adding him to the lineup of the brothers and Gaurav Bali. The year was not without turmoil, though. They had signed to Mystic Music, a division of Warner Bros., and were working on their debut CD when problems developed with financing. The group eventually found other financing, however, and Eve to Adam finished recording the CD. Auburn Slip was the result of that recording, and it was released in 2001. The five-track EP Antidote arrived in 2003, followed in 2007 by Queens to Eden, the group's major-label debut. Banquet for a Starving Dog dropped in 2011, followed by their fourth long-player, Locked & Loaded, in 2013. (Source: AllMusic)
Eve to Adam shared the stage with Queensryche and John 5 at the Emo's Austin. The band continues across the United States with the last stop at the Mars Music Hall in Huntsville, Alabama on February 25, 2020.
