Despite the seating arrangement at this playhouse, it was great to see two top-tier tribute bands, Bon Fire and Fan Halen, on the same night. Both bands were great, although the headliner should have played longer.

They had GREAT happy hour...continued

Bonfire rocked this venue even though 90% of the people didn't get up out of their seats. Lame. Security was pretty cool though for the venue being mostly a playhouse. It was cool that you were able to take your drinks into the theatre, you don't...continued

Imitation is the highest form of flattery and Tribute Fridays will prove it! Get ready to experience full-blown rock concerts featuring four of the most authentic tribute bands around as they pay homage to classic Van Halen and AC/DC! From the attention to detail given to the music and vocal impersonations, to the authentic wardrobe and staging, you will be amazed by these talented musicians as they pay tribute to not only the bands but to the spirit of an era!

Fan Halen brings back the party-time hard-rocking live music of “classic” Van Halen. Having just won 1st place in Downtown Long Beach’s Battle of the Tribute Bands and touring the US from Hawaii to Florida, they will take you back to a time when Van Halen shook the earth. As for the music, these are songs that are simply etched in our memory banks. “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love,” “Jamie’s Cryin’,” “Hot For Teacher,” and their number one hit, “Jump.”

Bonfire band members, Steve Pandol, Sean Mulvihill, Sean Colligan, Forrest Everett and James Pulli combine to make a perfect visual and auditory recreation of AC/DC. Bonfire has developed a dedicated following to the extent that their LA fans (The Bonfire Brigade) travel the lengths of the Atlantic Ocean to see them at the world’s largest annual AC/DC festival in Wexham, Wales.
