'84  A Tribute to Van Halen

The Ultimate Van Halen Experience!! 


84 has quickly become the region's most sought after Van Halen tribute band.

Faithfully recreating the sound, look, and energy of the original Van Halen lineup (1978-1984), 84 brings a jaw-droppingly authentic, passion filled show to packed venues and sold out crowds throughout the Southeast and beyond. 84's Dave, Eddie, Michael, and Alex work to bring you the most accurate concert experience possible. And it ain't no joke!

Behind this outrageously accurate concert experience, are 4 perfectly synced music professionals with the flawlessly aligned objective of taking each audience back in time to the early days of Van Halen when Rock Music ruled the world, and Van Halen ruled Rock Music. This is no "stay in your lane" performance. Each show is uniquely different and uniquely inspired by the audience out front. Just like the original.

84 covers material from the original self titled album Van Halen (1978) thru their most popular album 1984. You will be on your feet with David Lee Roth era hits like Jump, Panama, Hot For Teacher, Runnin With the Devil, Ain't Talkin' Bout Love, Eruption, Unchained, You Really Got Me, and many, many more! If your favorite isn't listed, you can be sure you will catch it at a show. 

Witness stage chemistry like no other and once again live the experience of your youth when Van Halen was delivering all the glory that was David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Michael Anthony, and Alex Van Halen. It was PERFECT, and 84 strives to bring that perfection to you.

You’ve heard Outlaws, you’ve heard Damsels, and you’ve heard Rockabilly’s... but you haven’t yet heard anything like The Waymores. 
Comprised of Kira Annalise and Willie Heath Neal, The Waymores are the epitome of Acoustic Country Music: He was born in a cop car, lived in and out of foster care, and served in the Navy. She used to get stage fright until she was swept up by his charm and grit, started singing country songs, and never looked back. Now they’re writing songs from the road and bringing their intimate, fun, and quirky one-liner-jabs to venues across the country. The Waymores take what’s real about life and relationships and add music, jokes, and whiskey; it can be beautiful, it can be painful, it can get inappropriate, and it’s completely unrehearsed, unexpected, and dangerously wonderful. Their debut album, Weeds, was released on Chicken Ranch Records in April, 2019

Like many of today’s southern stars, Tyler began his journey singing in the church choir and practicing three powerful chords that every guitarist learned first. When he arrived on the campus of Georgia College and State University, he encountered a whole new scene that would ultimately shape him and his music.

His fame began at a local club where he used his music to entertain college kids on Tuesday nights. “It’s always a good sign when you play for a room once and return two months down the road to a crowd that has tripled on simply word of mouth.” Fast forward a few years and Tyler earned the opportunity to play with many of the mentors he used to admire. He and the band perform over 150 shows a year across all parts of the southeast and has shared the stage with a number of idols including Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, and Cole Swindell.

Tyler’s newest album, “Take A Sip” has not only been a best-seller, but also describes the wild ride they have been a part of for the past six years. It’s not just about the music for, it’s also about each and every one of his fans, learning to live a little, and knowing when to take a shot of whiskey.

This whirlwind of success has made Tyler far from complacent. In fact, he spends countless hours honing his craft and making music that the growing fan base loves. Tyler, with this strong foundation, is ready to take his passion and talents to the next level… one song at a time.

Slippery When Wet | Bon Jovi Tribute

Slippery When Wet – The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute was formed in 2003 by Jason Morey after answering many inquiries of “Are you Jon Bon Jovi?”. Most notably comedian Dave Chappelle invited Jason backstage following one of his comedy shows thinking that he was the New Jersey icon. It was then that Jason knew he had to take advantage of the resemblance.

It’s a good thing that Jason grew up on classic albums such as “Slippery When Wet” and “New Jersey”. Not to mention that he was also playing a few Bon Jovi songs in his widely successful tribute to the halcyon days of metal “The White Leppard Crue”.

Slippery When Wet – The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute has taken exact live arrangements from Bon Jovi’s 2000’s Crush tour , 2002’s Bounce tour , 2005’s Have a Nice Day tour, 2008’s Lost Highway tour and 2010’s The Circle tour to form what Jason refers to as an “Arena- Club Show”. With further explanation Jason thinks that “Slippery When Wet has the power to turn a 600-1500 capacity club into a 20,000 seat arena for 2 1/2 hours”.

Bon Jovi’s career spans 30+ years and over 130 million albums sold worldwide. Another milestone that the band has achieved is that they have tracked 14 Billboard top ten singles of which 8 of those went straight to number 1. In 2018 Bon Jovi was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame. Slippery When Wet believes that Bon Jovi has the right kind of song catalog that really lends itself to being performed live as well as fitting into a broad age range that makes for the perfect club demographic.

Slippery When Wet has played over 1500 shows throughout the U.S. alone and has traveled to Africa, Mexico, Singapore, Puerto Rico, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. They have headlined on over 60 cruises on the Royal Caribbean cruise line and played the pre game of Super Bowl 48 in East Rutherford NJ.The bands shows are the most attended and highest grossing of any Bon Jovi Tribute in the country.

Slippery When Wet is the most searched Bon Jovi tribute band on Google as well it has the most views of any Bon Jovi tribute band on Youtube. In 2007 the band was officially authorized by Bon Jovi to perform their highly entertaining show.

In 2018 Jason Morey was chosen to perform as their only impersonator to Jon Bon Jovi in the Legends in Concert show in Las Vegas.

Their drive , musical ability , showmanship and dedication to duplicating the Bon Jovi live experience simply cannot be outdone.

Rock the 90's - The Official 90's Rock Tribute

WARNING: If you're expecting bright neon colors, cliché 90's attire and contrived, karaoke style've come to the wrong place. 

90's rock-n-roll was never about that… Ever. 
Rock the 90’s USA: The Official 90’s Rock Tribute takes you back to the glory days of guitar driven rock - an eclectic buffet of all the best in 90's radio rock - performed exactly like the original recordings. No hiding behind gimmicks or costumes - Rock the 90’s brings you a high energy 90's rock show that will take you back to a time when alt-rock ruled the airwaves. 
Rock the 90's is not just a band, it's an experience. A well-rehearsed, high-energy show that travels the road of 90's rock on all levels, including the detours and back roads of an often forgotten decade that produced some of the best guitar-driven rock in music history. 

One band, one spread the gospel of 90's rock-n-roll to the masses! It's a 90's throw down like no other you'll experience. 

Hailing from Middle Georgia USA, Rock the 90’s was formed in late 2015 (as Broadcast 90) to pay homage to the last golden decade of guitar driven rock: the 1990’s. The goal was to assemble an all-star super group of seasoned players to give the genre its proper due. Each member of Rock the 90’s has clocked thousands of hours in both the studio and stage and have performed all over the United States, not to mention performing with some of the most iconic 90’s music artists including Sister Hazel, Drivin’ n Cryin’, Sugar Ray and more... 

Known for their ability to sound exactly like your favorite 90's rock radio hits - Rock The 90’s specializes in replicating the studio recordings of the 90's rock genre - bringing them to life on stage in an authentic concert experience. Rock the 90’s is a true as it gets to an authentic 90's rock experience, with a high-energy, concert style show.
