HAIRBANGER’S BALL:
Born from a “what if?” scenario, Hairbanger’s Ball has entrenched themselves as one of the most sought after “80’s Hair Rock Tribute Bands” in the United States after years of performing sold out shows from coast to coast, all while exuding the same expert musicianship and flair for the theatrical as their idols. Now on the cusp of celebrating 16 years in existence, Hairbanger’s Ball has been a mainstay in music for longer than some of their celebrity counterparts, and routinely perform over 150 shows a year.

Whether you’re looking to bring back the memory of a favorite concert seen in 1985 or seeking a true-to-life representation of what a rock concert was like in the 80’s, Hairbanger’s Ball provides both the music and the mayhem for young and old alike, bundled together in a 6-piece, high octane lineup. Featuring powerful male and female lead vocals, some serious ax grinding and renditions of classic songs so much like the original you’d swear you’d gone back in time, Hairbanger’s Ball leaves nothing to be desired after seeing and listening to them live, which is why they’ve been named “Best Rock Band” in Chicago by their throngs of adoring fans.
In addition to traditional concert venues, Hairbanger’s Ball is also available for bookings at club venues, private events and parties, weddings, and corporate gatherings, having entertained heavy-hitters such as KIA Motors, Miller Brewing Company, AOL, The Phoenix Open, the United States Armed Forces and many more.Your mission — if you choose to accept it — is to spend a memorable evening saving the world from an evil plot! The Terre Haute Children’s Museum is hosting a Mother & Son Night this Saturday from 6-9pm.

Boys up to age 12 and their favorite females (mothers, grandmothers, friends, aunts, etc.) will train to be spies, get outfitted with spy gadgets, and then, together, solve a mystery as they dance, ride in a limo, and explore the museum. Light refreshments will be served and photographs will be given to each family group. Attending spies may choose to make it either a formal or informal occasion, as agents must be able to blend in at fancy parties or while secretly climbing walls.

Advance tickets for the event are $35 for a mother/son couple and $10 for each additional son. The price will be $40/couple after Jan. 15. Tickets are limited and are expected to sell out, so purchase your tickets early.

Tickets can also be purchased or over the phone by calling the Museum at 812-235-5548 or in person at the Museum during regular business hours before Feb. 1.

Sponsored by Labor Link, The Dance Studio, Buffalo Wild Wings, Refreshment Services Pepsi, Sodexo at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College, Baesler’s Market, and Minton’s Black Belt Academy.
