Diehard Van Halen fans revel and run with the devil as Fan Halen recreates the charging sound and striking image of the seminal band's original incarnation. Voted one of the top 10 Vegas tribute bands by Vegas Rocks!, the surgically focused impersonators of Fan Halen transport audiences to a magical land where David Lee Roth high-kicks his mighty wail through eardrums and Sammy Hagar refuses to exist. Diamond Dave surrogate Ernie Berru nails the famously inclining voice and manic banter, gleefully chewing up a colorful stage that emulates the 1983 Diver Down tour, and guitarist Derek Fuller taps into Eddie Van Halen’s frets with wiles that wowed Guitarist magazine. Starting the night with anthemic choruses and hard-rock swagger, Dust N’ Bones honors Guns N’ Roses in spirit, sound, and costume by playing all of the hits, and Brawley’s Sons of Zap adds extra bombast to Led Zeppelin’s bombastic odes to hobbits.
