MAMMOTH WVH & DIRTY HONEY SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2022 (7:30 pm)
GRAND SIERRA RESORT
MAMMOTH WVH: First impressions last a lifetime. Wolfgang Van Halen, son of Eddie Van Halen, has prepared a lifetime to make his first impression. The songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist worked tirelessly towards the introduction of MAMMOTH, his self-titled 2021 debut album. Playing every instrument and singing each and every note, his music presents a personal and powerful perspective, balancing memorable hooks and tight technicality. As many times as audiences have experienced his talent alongside the likes of Tremonti, Clint Lowery, and of course, Van Halen, we now meet Wolf as an individual for the very first time now. Click HERE for Wolfgang performing “Don’t Back Down.”
DIRTY HONEY: Some musicians spend year building an audience and connect with fans. For the Los Angeles-based quartet Dirty Honey, success appeared to come straight out of the gate. Released in March 2019, the band’s debut single, “When I’m Gone,” became the first song by an unsigned artist to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart. Kudos to Dirty Honey who opened concerts for major bands The Who, Guns ’N Roses, Slash, and Alter Bridge, and was the “do-not-miss-band” at major rock festivals such as Welcome to Rockville, Rocklahoma, Louder Than Life, Heavy MTL, and Epicenter. On their first U.S. headline tour in January and February 2020, the band sold out every date.
