Hot for Teacher (Van Halen tribute band)
Hot for Teacher brings audiences the rocking sounds of Van Halen. Formed in 1999 to showcase Van Halen’s classic era of David Lee Roth hits, Hot for Teacher has relentlessly performed all across the United States. This band is perfect for outdoor festivals, large casino events, and packed concert venues nation-wide. Featured on television and in magazines, Hot for Teacher was also featured in the book, “Everybody Wants Some – the Van Halen Saga” by Ian Christie. In 2008, Hot for Teacher was voted Best Tribute Band by the East Bay Express and became the first tribute ever invited to perform at the prestigious National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) in Anaheim, CA. For over three years they have been entertaining at the annual event.
Draw the Line (Aerosmith tribute band)
Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, the Draw The Line Aerosmith Tribute Band’s career has spanned almost fifteen years, taking them all over the world. The band has performed in all but two U.S. states. They have also been to Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and other U.S. territories. They have toured England, Canada, South America, and Japan. During a January 1998 interview, Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler singled out Draw The Line as the “best of the Aerosmith tribute bands.” Draw The Line's lead singer, Neill Byrnes, won a Steven Tyler look-alike contest on 107.3 WAAF, one of Boston's biggest rock radio stations.
Rumours (Fleetwood Mac tribute band)
Rumours is the country’s premier Fleetwood Mac tribute band. Based in Atlanta, GA, Rumours captures the energy of Fleetwood Mac at the height of their career by blending perfect harmonies, precise instrumentation, and a visually engaging stage show. Rumours’ dedication to recreating the Fleetwood Mac experience has skyrocketed their popularity, garnering a loyal fan base. Playing to sold out audiences and packed houses at private engagements and major venues across the country including House of Blues, the legendary Daryl Hall’s Club, and a one week residency at Epcot for Disney’s wildly popular Sounds Like Summer concert series, Rumours has earned its place as one of the top tribute bands around today.
