Hard rockers Hurricane have often been considered a bit of a feeder band for bigger groups, but that’s a tad unfair. Yes, original singer Kelly Hansen now fronts Foreigner and yes, two of the band are the younger brothers of dudes from Quiet Riot. But albums such as Over the Edge (1988) and Slave to the Thrill (1990) proved that this band had real chops and could pen a great tune — not least the “Over the Edge” and “Dance Little Sister” singles. Nowadays, with Hansen filling Lou Gramm’s shoes, Michael O’Mara has the vocal duties with Hurricane, but no doubt those old tunes will sound great at the Whisky. Tracy Grave, Red Riot, Alive, Pawns in Chess and Days Out also play.
Hurricane plays with Tracy Grave, Red Riot, Alive, Pawns in Chess and Days Out at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22 at the Whisky A Go Go.
