Hairball is a tribute band with a twist, impersonating 70s and 80s band and lead singers right down to the pyrotechnics, lighting and costuming. The band prides themselves on nailing some of the most memorable licks and chops of all time, while adding their own style and flare that they've cultivated over decades of performing. The stage becomes an entirely new rock concert several times throughout the night. The main vocalists lead the band through a two-hour homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world including: Ozzy Osbourne, Guns N' Roses, AC/DC, Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, Aerosmith, Twisted Sister and Bon Jovi.
A band puts on a concert - Hairball puts on an event! Hairball is a rock and roll experience you won't soon forget. The lights, sound, smoke, fire, and cheering crowds; to merely call it a concert would be like calling Mount Rushmore a roadside attraction!
Hairball performs every show as though it could be their last. Every night is a 100% full-on, no-holds-barred, exciting, chaotic, fiery party that has to be experienced to be believed!
Vocalists Joe, Steve and Bobby lead the band through a 2+ hour, mind-blowing, and drop-dead accurate homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world. The motor that drives the Hairball dragster consists of Freaky on the electric bass, Blake on the drums, and Happy on the lead guitar. These rock and roll soldiers pride themselves on nailing some of the most memorable licks and chops of all time, while adding their own style and flare that they've cultivated over decades of tireless performing.
Hairball is an experience, an attitude, and expression of music that isn't simply a retro flashback. It's a way of life!
