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-holdsbarred, 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. Hairball is an experience, an attitude, and expression of music that isn't simply a retro flashback. It's a way of life!

Kat Perkins grew up in Scranton, North Dakota surrounded by a family of musicians and quickly knew at a young age that performing is what she wanted to make her life career. After seeking as many opportunities as she could, including spending several summers as a main act on the Medora Musical stage, Kat followed her undeniable drive and passion for performing and moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota to pursue music on a more professional scale. She quickly gained the attention of the local Twin Cities music scene by taking stages in the several projects and bands she formed over the years. The most successful being her rock band, Scarlet Haze, which went to open for Bon Jovi, amongst working with some of the music industry's most well-known acts.

After a hiatus from performing due to vocal surgery, Kat made a musical comeback in 2014 by auditioning and appearing on season 6 of NBC's The Voice. Kat turned 3 chairs during her blind audition, charted in the top 5 on iTunes several times with her stand-out performances on the show, and sailed to the finals with help from her coach, Adam Levine. Being on The Voice brought new platforms of success and opportunities Kat's way. She's since gone on an average of two military tours per year to perform for the troops overseas, sold out venues across America with a variety of themed performances and tours, and began going into schools to speak to students about following their dreams, living a Fearless life, and making a positive impact on the world. The praise Kat received from these presentations even led her to begin a nonprofit foundation, The Rising Star Foundation, providing scholarships and opportunity for aspiring musicians while also giving back to the local community.
