THE HOOTERS

The Hooters slo igjennom med et brak I 1980 I Philadelphia. Den unike miksen av ska, reggae, rock n roll og mektig lys var et friskt pust og etablerte bandet som et av de aller største på vestkysten I USA og senere hele landet. I 1983 kom deres første plate “Amore” som inneholdt originalversjonen av dere aller største hit “ All you Zombies”.  Fra 1986 delte de scene med U2, The Police, Bryan Adams, Lou Reed og Peter Gabriel og I 1987 utga de suksessalbumet “One Way Home” som er en regelrett hitparade med “Johnny B”, “Satellite” “Karla with a K” og mange flere.


 
Grunnleggerne av bandet Rob Hyman og Eric Bazilian har skrevet låter for en rekke andre som Taj Mahal, Mick Jagger, Willie Nelson, John Bon Jovi, Robbie Williams, Cindy Lauper (“Time after Time”, nominert til en rekke Grammy Awards) og mange flere.
 
I august inntar bandet Halden og Brygga Kultursal i en Norgeseksklusiv opptreden der alle hitsene kommer som perler på en snor.

Bursting onto the Philadelphia music scene in 1980, the Hooters quickly became a huge success along their native East Coast. Their unique blend of ska, reggae and rock n roll was a fresh and powerful sound and in 1983 the Hooters released their first independent album “Amore” which introduced the original version of one of their biggest hits “All You Zombies”.
 
By 1986 the Hooters had four hits singles under their belts and had been touring almost non-stop. Relatively unknown only a year before, the Hooters were now sharing the stage with acts such as U2, The Police, Bryan Adams, Lou Reed and Peter Gabriel.
 
In 1987 the Hooters released “One Way Home” with the famous hit “Johnny B” on it.
 
Following these albums and many years of touring, the Hooters decided to take a much needed break and concentrate on various solo projects.
Rob and Eric continued to contribute their musical and songwriting talents to other artists, including Taj Mahal, Mick Jagger, Willie Nelson, John Bon Jovi, Robbie Williams, Cindy Lauper (“Time after Time”, nominated for numerous Grammy Awards) and many others.
