Hair Nation embraces retro rock

NANAIMO - Hair Nations performs at the Queen's tonight (June 13).

Get out the spandex, tease your hair and get ready to rock tonight at the Queen’s.

Hair Nation is bringing the arena rock of the ’80s to the bar during its show.

“We are essentially a tribute to ’80s hair bands,” said Jason Atkinson, lead vocalist for Hair Nation.

The foursome performs songs by Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crüe and others.

The members have been involved in the Island music scene for decades but decided last year they wanted to form a band to perform some of the ’80s music they love.

“It’s just the beginning of something great,” said Atkinson.  “We are bringing the energy of the arena rock show to a small club.”

Band members love to get out among audience members and entertain. Atkinson said people can expect high energy and a fun show.

Hair Nation performs at the Queen’s tonight (June 13) starting at 9 p.m.

Tickets are $5 in advance from band members, Money Maxx and the bar or $8 at the door.
