Decades Rewind is set to perform an audience favorite theatrical concert at the Rialto Square Theatre on Saturday, February, 17, 2018.
Decades Rewind is a national touring concert, dance party and theatrical performance all wrapped up in one blockbuster show celebrating the hits of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s – America’s most prominent decades in music history.
The medleys feature a wide array of legendary songs including hits by ABBA, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Tina Turner, Chubby Checker, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Prince, Bon Jovi, and many others. The “jump out and grab you show” is accompanied by three larger than life screens and visuals that instantly transport viewers to each decade with images from that era’s headlines and pop-culture.
Decades Rewind was created by the show’s keyboardist, Peter Gatti, and drummer, Mark Blinkhorn. Gatti said, “Decades Rewind was designed to whisk our audiences back to the days of their best memories. Guests always tell us that they remembered their first dance, their first kiss, their first love during our shows. Music is so powerful and it’s really amazing to see how people are moved throughout the performance”. What was your first dance move? The twist?.. The hustle?.. The robot? When you come to a Decades Rewind show, you have to bring your dancing shoes!
With over 100 costume changes, 10 medleys featuring 60 songs, Decades Rewind is an unparalleled, interactive multimedia musical experience that will have you rockin’ in your seat, dancing in the aisle, and singing along with every word. This show really does let you turn back the hands of time

A Rock & Roll experience you won’t forget!
Saturday, February 3, 2018 at 7:30 pm.
Vocalists Bobby, Steve and Joe Dandy lead the band through a 2+ hour, mind-blowing and drop-dead accurate homage to some of the biggest arena acts in the world. Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, and Aerosmith are but a few of the acts fans will see brought to life. The Hairball stage becomes an entirely new rock concert before your very eyes countless times throughout the night. The motor that drives the Hairball dragster consists of Freaky on the electric bass, Blake on the drums, and Happy on the lead guitar. These Rock & Roll soldiers pride themselves on nailing some of the most memorable licks and chops of all time, while adding their own style and flare that they’ve cultivated over decades of tireless performing. These guys live and breathe Rock & Roll!
As important to Hairball as the music are its fans. While many bands claim to have the best fans in the world, Hairball actually has! Whether they’re 8 or 85, Hairball fans bring an unparalleled enthusiasm and energy to the show that completes the Arena Rock experience. Hairball knows it wouldn’t exist without its fans, and takes every opportunity to let them know that.
Don’t confuse Hairball with the countless “’80s Tribute” bands across the country. Hairball is an event; an attitude and expression of music and showmanship that isn’t a retro-flashback. It’s a way of life…and it’s not going away!
