Imagine if you could construct a killer rock group, using the best musicians from any band within the past 30 years. You'd choose a rattle-your-fillings lead singer, a guitar player capable of screaming riffs, a fret-shredding bassist, and a thunderous drummer to keep the beat. That's exactly what Robin Zander -touring front man for Cheap Trick - did when he assembled this group of monstrous talent, The Robin Zander Band.
Zander enlisted axe man Mark Hitt, who played guitar with The Tubes and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, Jack Bruce of Cream and more. He picked Larry Hobbs of The Juice to play bass, and long time friend and drummer Steve Luongo, who has performed or recorded with John Entwistle/The Who, members of AC/DC, Todd Rundgren and Leslie West/Mountain to name a few.
Zander says "We just want to go out and have a ball and who knows what special guests might just show up on stage."
Robin Zander has sold millions of albums and played large-scale venues the world over with Cheap Trick. He now looks forward to performing classic rock staples from the Robin Zander Band's collective history, music from his solo albums along with some Cheap Trick hits and deep cuts.
