Here’s a Super Bowl tailgate party with rock songs everybody knows and some really big hair.
A spoof of 1980s heavy metal music, Metalshop takes the concept of a tribute band to another level. It’s like a tribute to a tribute.
It was described by music critics as “quite possibly the best parody in music right now,” and “Unparalled comedic genius with the greatest hard rock hits, too.”
Metalshop’s “Hair band tribute” will be performed in the Crystal Bay Casino Crown Room on Saturday, Feb. 1. The event is free to all, but it might not be a good idea to invite Paul Stanley. The last time he was in Tahoe, he didn’t appear to have much of a sense of humor.
The Metalshop show was created by producers Jamie Brown and Roger Sause, who select the cast members, perform, sing, and produce the backing tracks, and direct in costuming, choreography, scripted comedy and other “schtick.” Since it’s debute in 1997, Brown and Sause have expanded the Metalshop show (also performed under the alter ego of “Danger Kitty”) into eight different lineups spread all throughout the country performing hundreds of shows annually.
Brown and Sause also started Boogie Knights, The M-80s, and The Spazmatics, comes PWE Productions’ Metalshop–––an outrageously funny spoof of 1980s Heavy Metal music featuring some of the best musicians in the LA music scene.
