Do you want to know about the best band which pays homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world? We have the rock band for you – the Hairball Band – and we can let you know where to buy tickets for their next tour. Read on to find out more! 

Who Are The Hairball Band? 

The band is made up of vocalists Joe Dandy, Kris Vox, and Dave Moody and HBK on the electric bass, Billy on the drums, and Happy on the lead guitar. The Hairball Band has been performing since 2015.

Over the last 20 years, the band has created a 2+ hour, mind-blowing, and drop-dead accurate homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world. Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, and Aerosmith are but a few of the acts fans will see brought to life. The Hairball stage becomes an entirely new rock concert before your very eyes countless times throughout the night.

These Rock & 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. This isn’t a side job. These guys eat, sleep and breathe Rock & Roll!

2023 finds Hairball celebrating its 23rd year of rocking hundreds of thousands of people across the country. Constantly adding more characters, more pyrotechnics, more lights, more sound, more props, more surprises…more everything! While Happy often tells the audience “Today is the first day is the rest of your life!” 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!

As important to Hairball as the music, are its fans. While many bands claim to have the best fans in the world, Hairball actually has! Whether they are 10 years old or 100, Hairball fans bring unparalleled enthusiasm and energy to the show that enhances the arena experience. Hairball knows it wouldn’t exist without its fans and takes every opportunity to let them know that.

Whether it’s a pre-show meet and greet, hanging out at the merch booth, or chatting online, Hairball has a lot in common with its fans and it’s always a good time when they get together. Don’t confuse Hairball with the countless “80’s Tribute” bands across the country. Hairball is an experience, an attitude, and an expression of music that isn’t simply a retro flashback, it’s a way of life!

When Are The Hairball Band Next On Tour? 

They are touring right now until August, so make sure you get tickets to see them. They will be touring around South Dakota & North Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin and many more! 

Ticket costs start at $25, so not too pricey if you want to keep costs low but still want to see your favourite tribute rock band.

Closing Thoughts

Hairball is obviously a very popular cover band that performs the greatest hits of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. They put on an amazing show that definitely entertains.

The band puts on an amazing light show, and the costumes they wear are sure to make you laugh. The band also interacts with the crowd, making sure everyone is having a great time. If you’re looking for a fun night out, Hairball is the perfect choice.
