A night of ROCK that you are not going to want to miss!
Sunset Sinners take the stage first with their “Whiskey Barrel Rock” which is a fusion of Southern & 70’s Rock blended with Red Dirt Country. The Sinners are super high energy performing their own originals along with Sinnerized classics!
Next up will be PARAMOUNT, BRINGING HIGH-ENERGY 80S ROCK! The rapid growth and popularity of 80s Rock Tribute PARAMOUNT is no doubt in part due to the high energy show the band delivers with concert-style performances and also in part due to the fun music they play! PARAMOUNT's fanbase continues to grow with regular shows in multiple Midwest cities and states.
Headliner WARRANT brings their 2023 Louder, Harder, Faster Tour to Northwest Kansas! At its core, WARRANT is an American rock band through and through. Hitting it big in 1989, the Hollywood, CA based band rose through the ranks of the local Sunset Strip scene to the level of multiplatinum selling, chart-topping success.
The band first came into the national spotlight with their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. This album produced Radio and MTV chart toppers “Down Boys,” “Sometimes She Cries,” and the massive hit “Heaven” which reached #1 in Rolling Stone and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in a row. The single “Heaven” enjoyed Gold sales and the Album went Platinum in Canada as well, eventually selling over 3 million copies. The band toured the globe performing 262 shows in support of DRFSR and closed the year with a Platinum Home Video.
WARRANT’s sophomore album Cherry Pie was released in September 1990. This album, which spawned the MTV & Radio hits “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and “I Saw Red,” all reached the Top 10 in the United States and went on to sell 3 million copies, reaching Platinum sales in Canada and Australia. The band played 200 shows in support of Cherry Pie and finished the tour headlining sheds all over the USA and ended up being one of the top grossing tours of 1991. Over the course of their career, WARRANT has sold over 10 million albums worldwide. The song “Cherry Pie” has taken on a pop culture life of its own, being featured in countless movies, TV shows, commercials and the hugely popular video game Guitar Hero II.
WARRANT's signature style of rock music is very catchy and yet very melodic and remains the band's signature sound today. In September 2008, Robert Mason replaced Jani Lane (RIP) as lead vocalist joining the other four original members, Jerry Dixon, Steven Sweet, Joey Allen and Erik Turner. Their current album Louder Harder Faster, released on Frontiers Records, has been highly regarded in reviews and embraced by fans. WARRANT has been headlining festivals, casinos and fairs all over the country in support of their latest CD Louder Harder Faster and the 30 year anniversary of their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. The band is fired up and tighter than every musically! These rockers can’t wait to play not only ALL the hits fans know & love, but also new tunes/videos like “Louder Harder Faster” & “I Think I Will Just Stay Here & Drink.”
