Last year, HOT FOR TEACHER – The Van Halen Experience was the first Tribute Band ever invited to perform on the official stages of the massive NAMM convention in Anaheim, California. This year, HOT FOR TEACHER outdid their 2008 shows with an explosive NAMM performance on the Hilton lobby stage in front of 3,000-plus Music Industry Professionals and Artists. The newly remodeled Hilton was packed tight with a massive audience captivated by HOT FOR TEACHER’s uncanny knack for performing classic Van Halen music with note-for-note accuracy and all of the boisterous mojo and volcanic energy music fans associate with the Hall of Fame rock band. HOT FOR TEACHER blazed through a 60-minute set that featured, as usual, white-hot guitar solos, dimensional backing vocals, David Lee Roth-approved lead vocals, and scantily clad dancers invading the stage. (At one point, Security had to pull one dancer off the stage when she escalated her risqué performance to well beyond an R-rated level.) The show’s encore featured Night Ranger’s lead guitar tag team Brad Gillis and Joel Hoekstra performing everything from Night Ranger’s “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me” to Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train.”
