Hairball is a Rock & Roll experience you won't forget. A band puts on a concert - Hairball puts on an event! The lights, sound, video screens, smoke, fire, blood, bombs, confetti, spiders, snakes & monsters (oh my) and the screaming hoards of rabid Hairball fans create an event - an event that hits you so hard, it'll take a few days to recover! Rock & Roll will NEVER die!!!
Vocalists Bobby, Steve and Joe Dandy lead the band through 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.
5:00 PM - 5:45 PM
Brian Leighton and his guitar player will be performing an acoustic show for our event this year and we couldn't be more excited to have them perform for us! More than 200 shows a year. Jubilant fans who follow him from Minnesota to Mexico. More than 70,000 albums sold. A new release “Get Up” and a state-of-the-art nightclub named after one of his songs -- all without the support of a major record label…
Meet GB Leighton, a band named after one of the regions’ most incendiary live performers and consistently solid songwriters, Brian Leighton. Through more than a decade and eleven studio albums, Leighton and his six piece band have been tearing up rock clubs, festivals and even a few fan’s living rooms with a slew of songs that connect with the heart and couples singing along out on the dance floor. “A man of the people” is a phrase usually reserved for statesmen and politicians, but for Leighton, it’s a fitting description when you see him in action working a crowd.
Where have we seen this phenomena before? Springsteen in Asbury Park before he lit out for New York and the wider world; Mellencamp back in those anonymous Indiana bars; Hootie and the Blowfish lightin’ up the southern circuit…Leighton delivers that same inescapable rock ‘n’ roll spirit night after night. “If I hadn’t heard a bunch of Bruce’s bootlegs or seen the videos I’d be a much different musician,” he says today. “He’s always been a great songwriter and performer, like a preacher almost who commands an audience. That’s the place I’m coming from. But at the end of the day, I’m just a common guy, a working class kid from a Twin Cities suburb who loves to put on a good show and hopefully write some good songs in between.”

Roger Allen was born and raised in St. Paul Minnesota. As part of an athletic driven family, Roger never had the opportunity to pursue the Minnesota music scene.
Having developed his guitar skills the last few years along with his strong vocal ability, Roger recently assembled a few seasoned musicians from the Twin Cities area and formed the Roger Allen Band.
They currently cover most of the new modern country with a rock feel. Roger prides himself in entertaining and interacting with fans and making them feel like they’re part of the show. He is currently working on his first record and music video due out next spring.
