Bio

“Are we havin’ fun yet”? Hell yeah baby!

It is the Best of Both Worlds! The Red Rocker Experience brings all the great and iconic Sammy Hagar tunes to life! It’s all Sammy, all the time!

After more than a dozen years of performing Van Halen’s DLR era music as HOT FOR TEACHER (HFT), it was high time that the band decided to include the other half of the VH canon with a contemporaneity popular string of #1 hits and albums from Sammy Hagar – affectionately known as Van Hagar.

Showcasing Van Hagar’s song selections has been a passion to this group, and has lead to huge crowd moments, sing-a-longs, and most importantly… a f’n great time! The foreshadowing began when HFT performed in San Francisco with VH, Other Half & Chickenfoot member, Michael Anthony, back in 2003. Today, in the same fashion, the band also rocks out earlier songs from the Sammy discography as well.

This dynamic tribute now performs a number of other hits from Hagar’s 4 Decades of Rock; leading off with the legacy of the original guitar wizard Ronnie Montrose, then on to Sammy’s famous solo work – and of course includes the great and aforementioned Van Hagar hits.

With an uncanny knack for channeling both David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar, singer and bandleader Randy Monroe belts out Montrose, Sammy, and Van Hagar’s powerful but melodic vocals and irreverent lyrical sound bites with the same passion and intensity of the original recordings, all the while conjuring the “Livin’ On a Coastline” Sammy Hagar life-style and vibe. The ripping, virtuosic guitar parts of Eddie Van Halen played by 6-string sharpshooter, Tommy Merry of Davey Pattison’s band, Gamma, will not only impress the Montrose and Sammy fans, but even the most finicky of the Van Halen fans as well! Four-string super hero Jesse Scott brings the Bill Church thump and Michael Anthony thunder on bass, and he also amazingly nails Anthony’s near-inimitable ultra-high vocal harmonies – a crucial sonic element of every Van Halen song. All of this while drum genius and perfect meter-man, Eddie Studebaker, evokes the groove of Denny Camassi, the power of David Bro’ Lauser and Alex Van Halen’s skin-bashing with an authenticity and power you can only see to believe.

Born in 2013, The Red Rocker Experience has been worked in front of a number of NorCal’s most discriminate “Redheads” that included shows at the awesome Slim’s SF, Club Fox, Swabbies on the River, Sammy’s Island Bar & Grill, and at the famed Sweetwater Café. It was at the Sweetwater in 2014 where The Red Rocker Experience performed a sold out benefit show for Liza Lauser (Liza 2.0). The show naturally included an entire Red Rocker set with Sammy’s oldest friend and famed Wabo drummer (original percussionist on all of the biggest hits), David Lauser.

So, even though you’re not “Standing in Hampton” with a “Three Lock Box”, Hagar fans will enjoy the “VOA” because “I Never Said Goodbye” to the “Red Voodoo” that The Red Rocker Experience spreads through the music of Sammy Hagar.

So get your “Redhead” self to a gig.

It’s time to start “Livin’ It Up”!
