Izz started in 1971 with Vic Blecman and Jeff Birks who had been in the Cavemen (later Pennsylvania Crude Oil). The band played in Lorain country clubs and Cleveland area clubs. The other members were Tony Carnett, Dale Doman, and Denny Carnett. The band was booked by J&J Attractions out of Elyria.
Around 1974 the band split with Blecman and Birks starting Flight, and the other members restarting as Revolver.
