Hairball to return to Red River Valley Fair

For the fourth straight year, Hairball is set to perform at the Red River Valley Fair.

The band will take the stage on Wednesday, July 10, and is scheduled to perform a high energy, two hour performance.

“Hairball has become a staple at the Fair” General Manager Bryan Schulz said. “They continue to draw a large following and we continue to have requests to bring them back. Hairball at the Fair has now become a reunion of people meeting up to have a good time at an outdoor concert. We look forward to their return!”

Hairball is the world’s ultimate “80’s Rock” impersonation act, recreating the good-time party atmosphere of the decadent decade with unmatched authenticity.

Hairball’s unique triple front men assault, featuring veteran vocalists Rockstar Bob, Kris Voxx, and Joe Dandy sets them apart from all other ‘80s tributes. They capture the personas of the era’s legendary front men while rapidly changing elaborate costumes, completing their transformations with dead-on visual and vocal performances. They alternate their stage time, bringing new characters to the stage every five to 10 minutes. For instance, while Bob has fans questioning whether or not he really is Paul Stanley from KISS, Kris is backstage preparing for his insanely accurate Twisted Sister spot.

The core of Hairball consists of guitarist Happy, bassist Freaky, and drummer Colt Python, all whom are legitimate rock stars in their own right.

It has also been announced that rock band Hinder is set to perform on Thursday, July 11.

“We really tried to secure a solid rock band at the Fair and we feel Hinder will attract the exact crowd we are aiming for,” Schulz said. “They bring a high energy show and we are excited for them to come to West Fargo.”
