Description

It all started when five hard-rockin’ kids from the San Francisco Bay Area joined forces in the early ’80s to form Night Ranger. Like no other ’80s rock band, Night Ranger both epitomized and transcended the sound and style of that decade.

Early on, their sing-along rock songs and good looks packed clubs and theaters drawing the attention of legendary promoter Bill Graham. Soon Night Ranger was appearing in concert with major artists but it wouldn’t be long before they were headlining their own ARENA shows. Night Ranger’s debut album Dawn Patrol hit the charts hard, going instantly Top 40 with the, now anthemic single, “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me”.

Night Ranger left an indelible mark with a string of best-selling albums that sold more than 16 million copies worldwide. The band’s popularity was fuelled by an impressive string of instantly recognizable hit singles and signature album tracks, including “Sister Christian,” “(You Can Still) Rock In America,” “When You Close Your Eyes,” “Sentimental Street,” “Goodbye” and the afore mentioned “Don’t Tell Me You Love Me.” Harnessing the frenetic drive of heavy metal to hook-laden rock songs, throwing in a stunning twin lead guitar team, and melodious, radio-friendly power ballads, Night Ranger inspired new descriptive phrases such as “melodic metal” and “metal power pop”. They became the standard-bearer of a new sound.
