Impact Fuel Room presents 90's Grunge Night with Big Band Baby - Stone Temple Pilots Tribute and Junkhead: The Alice in Chains Experience on Saturday, September 12th!
Junkhead: The Alice In Chains Experience is dedicated to performing the grunge-metal, sludge-blues music of one of the greatest and most influential rock bands to come out of the Seattle grunge scene of the 90's. Harnessing – with accurate precision – the power of Layne Staley's haunted yet soulful vocals, along with Jerry Cantrell's maddening but mesmerizing guitar, this tribute is an authentic expression of honor to a legendary rock band that changed the face of music and left a slew of imitators clamoring for that hallowed plateau of Rock God status. True fans who were there to witness AIC will be eerily brought back to those Junkhead days and completely blown away, as new converts are gained along the way.

Rolling through the “Decade of Decadence” like a 50-ton freight train, iconic bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi and Poison (to mention only a few) made the 1980’s a musical era the likes of which we’re doubtful to see again. Millions upon millions of records were sold, and concert venues around the world sold out within seconds when these bands were announced as headliners.
In 2001, lamenting the heyday of hairbands, one Chicago band sought to rekindle the flame for these Gods of Rock by tapping into the nostalgic and undeniable energy of that bygone era. They called themselves Hairbanger’s Ball.
Born from a “what if?” scenario, Hairbanger’s Ball has entrenched themselves as one of the most sought after “80’s Hair Rock Tribute Bands” in the United States after years of performing sold out shows from coast to coast, all while exuding the same expert musicianship and flair for the theatrical as their idols. Now on the cusp of celebrating 15 years in existence, Hairbanger’s Ball has been a mainstay in music for longer than some of their celebrity counterparts, and routinely perform over 150 shows a year.
Whether you’re looking to bring back the memory of a favorite concert seen in 1985 or seeking a true-to-life representation of what a rock concert was like in the 80's, Hairbanger’s Ball provides both the music and the mayhem for young and old alike, bundled together in a six-piece, high octane lineup. Featuring powerful male and female lead vocals, some serious ax grinding and renditions of classic songs so much like the original you’d swear you’d gone back in time, Hairbanger’s Ball leaves nothing to be desired after seeing and listening to them live, and is why they’ve been named “Best Rock Band” in Chicago by their throngs of adoring fans.
Alright STOP. Collaborate an’ LIS-en. Remember when hip hop Talked About Sex? When you could Bust a Move, Shake the Rump, do the Humpty and no one was poppin’ caps? When Bell Biv Devoe called all y’all tricks “Poison” and warned all the fellas to “never trust a big butt and a smiiiiiiile”? We do too. We’ll drink up all the Hennessey you got on yo’ shelf, so just let us introduce ourselves…
There is simply no band anywhere like the Too White Crew. It is a tribute to the golden era of hip hop, featuring all-live 80's and 90's covers (no tracks) from a six-piece band, accompanied by choreographed “Fly Girl” dancers. On bigger stages we bring our Bra$$ Funkeez horn section, bboys, our Extremely Worthless Posse, live painters, empty shoe boxes, broken projection TVs, you name it. It’s a party band…it’s a show…it’s art…it’s madness on stage — all packaged in an unprecedented way. TWC has opened for countless hip hop & pop legends and is the only band in the past decade to perform at the Playboy Mansion. Too White Crew’s nationally touring show is also one of the top-requested festival acts.
