The Rock of Ages — Broadway show's band has significant stage time compared to other musicals' bands and orchestras. The band was dressed in typical metal heads costumes as Stacee's back up band and they are always on stage. The drummer was placed inside a cage that jokingly said "Please don't feed the drummer". One of the guitarists in the stage band, Joel Hoekstra, is a member of Night Ranger, whose song "Sister Christian" is performed in the show.

Rock of Ages is a rock / jukebox Broadway musical show, with a book by Chris D'Arienzo, built around classic rock hits from the 1980s, especially from the famous glam metal bands of the decade. The musical features songs from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Asia, among other well-known rock bands . It is directed by Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by Kelly Devine with music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations by Ethan Popp. The show is noted for being more lighthearted and comedic than other shows on Broadway. During performance, the performers frequently break the "fourth wall", directly addressing the audience and seemingly forgetting (or perhaps reminding the audience) that they are actors in a play.
