Poison is the nation’s only glam rock tribute band to capture the
look, sound and attitude of the hard rocking 80’s. Ratt Poison pay
homage to the decade of decadence when guitars went to 11, rock
stars were heroes, and hair bands made the world go round n round.
When music was all about fast cars, dangerous women, and having
nothin’ but a good time. Ratt Poison has over seventy cock rock
classics in their repertoire to choose from, ranging from
fist-pumping party anthems to tear-jerking power ballads.
The hair band
scheme was originally conceived by guitar maestros Trixxi
“Trixter” Trash and Alexxis Von Clerehexx (aka “Spandalex”)
during a late night drinking session at the world famous
Dallas Dancers Super Strip. The two then set about
finding not only the best players, but also the people who
most closely embodied the unrepentant decadence and
glamour of the hair metal era. They enlisted the help of
bassist Robbi Rokkit and drummer Spaz Stixx, with whom
Alexxis had played with previously in a Bon Jovi tribute
The road to
finding a frontman for Ratt Poison had its share of
problems but the dedicated musicians kept on pressing
until they finally came across vocalist Al Stanley at
legendary rock club Back In The Day. When Trixxi, Alexxis,
Spaz, Robbi, and Al came together, the magic was
instantaneous and Ratt Poison was born.
Poison provide a hair-raising live show which excites,
stimulates and moves the audience. All members of Ratt
Poison are accomplished musicians, and their music and
showmanship are equally matched by their strong image.
These guys are prettier than your girlfriend!
Armed with more
makeup than your mother, hair that needs its own zoning
permit, and pants that leave nothing to the imagination,
Ratt Poison are as exciting to watch as they are to listen
to. Ratt Poison look the part even down to the genuine
vintage 80’s clothing. Ratt Poison’s wardrobe consists of
authentic glam rock attire that was actually worn by local
hair bands in the 80’s. Ratt Poison also cop the
individual stage moves of the legendary bands they imitate
to perfection, the outgrowth of experience gleaned from
innumerable hours of viewing 80’s concert footage.
So slide into
some spandex, slather on the mascara, and dig out the
industrial strength hair products, caus Ratt Poison are
sweeping the glam nation. When these big-haired pretty
boys are in town, you’d better lock up your daughters,
your sisters, and their makeup kits.
