Throughout the night, fans will see a drop-dead accurate homage to acts that include Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey and Aerosmith.  The band’s ability to cop the persona of the era’s legendary front men and musicianship make Hairball an international favorite. Hairball brings special guest Kat Perkins, known for her vocals in the rock band Scarlet Haze and for her musical comeback on season 6 of NBC’s The Voice in 2014.
