FOREIGNER UNAUTHORIZED was formed in early 2012 in Fresno California after a chance meeting between guitarist De Vivo (Moon Walker) and bassist Belt. Since its inception, the band quickly created a large, loyal, and growing fan base in the California music scene garnering buzz for their ability to reproduce to perfection the sounds of the phenomenal band Foreigner that helped shaped Rock music in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s with captivating high-energy live performances.
