Hollywood Roses

Hollywood Roses

Hollywood Roses lead singer Colby Veil’s incredible likeness to Axl Rose both in appearance as well as vocal prowess helped pave the way for Hollywood Roses to be named “Hollywood’s Best Tribute Band.”

They have rocked numerous festivals including the inaugural year of “Rocklahoma”(2007), which had record breaking attendance and coverage in every major Rock Magazine Worldwide.

HR have toured the US, playing high profile venues in Hollywood, Las Vegas, Arizona, Detroit and featured at many “Summer Rock Festivals & Casinos”. In 2007, Colby Veil was hand-picked by G n’R original drummer Steven Adler to lead Adler’s Appetite for the 20th Anniversary of Appetite for Destruction.

The tour kicked off at Hollywood’s famous Key Club. On stage, Colby was joined by Izzy, Duff and of course Steven Adler, performing Guns N Roses hits to amazed fans. Celebrities were in attendance including guitar God Slash. This show launched the beginning of a world tour for “Adler’s Appetite.”

Fans craving raw rock and roll and an authentic Guns N Roses experience won’t be disappointed by Hollywood Roses’ exciting energetic and, spot-on performance. Straight Out of the Gutter, from the Sunset Strip – Ironically, Colby Veil channels that untamed, raw energy that once was the power that gave Axl Rose the ability to make his own rules and be as unpredictable and chaotic in all his actions that put Guns n Roses in a category of its own.

“Hollywood Roses” consistently pays homage to that unpredictable Guns n’ Roses from back in 1987, a moment in time that the rabid rock youth of today can be guaranteed the experience that the original Guns n Roses fans were constantly taking a gamble that they would be fortunate enough to get that glimpse of a full on unique Guns n Roses Experience.

4 Lads from Liverpool

4 Lads from Liverpool

The Beatles Tribute, 4 Lads From Liverpool, take you through an epic journey that begins in the early days in Hamburg, Germany and the Cavern Club in Liverpool, then fast forwards to the Sgt Pepper era
and beyond.

The Beatles changed the way we all listen to music, and to pay homage to their craft and to ensure authenticity a great deal of time was spent on researching the rich history of the group and the era they helped define. It was a moment in time that is seared into our hearts and minds – the era of war and peace, violence and free love. The message of love that came out of their music is universal and has stood the test of time.
