About Aquanett: Dust off the acid washed jean jacket, tease up your hair, and squeeze in to that spandex – it’s time to Rock Till You Drop with the greatest 80’s rock band around. Aquanett’s brash, melodic heavy metal made the quintet one of the most popular rock acts of the Mid 80s – often imitated but never replicated Aquanett is the closest thing you’ll get to true 80’s in all it’s hair-flying glory without Doc Brown and his DeLorean!
Preserved by the volumes of CFCs ingested during their heyday in the 80s the band are all veteran’s of rock, and after years of playing incognito on the Charlottesville music scene, they’re ready to RAWK again!
So prepare yourself for the ultimate in Big Hair, Big Rock, and Big… Guitars – You'll swear it's 1987 when Aquanett takes the stage and blasts out tunes from Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Ratt, The Scorpions, Whitesnake and more. So, tease up your hair, throw on the acid washed jean jacket and get ready Rock!
