Uncle Kracker to perform at Veil Pavilion at Silverton Casino Hotel

 

UNCLE KRACKER 

TO PERFORM AT VEIL PAVILION AT SILVERTON CASINO HOTEL 

Friday, December 9, 9:30 p.m. Doors

Tickets on sale – TODAY 

Tickets are $25 

Tickets are available for purchase at Silverton Casino Hotel Box Office or online at silvertoncasino.com

 

Well known singer and songwriter Uncle Kracker makes his way to Veil Pavilion to show audiences that he is still working hard to put out hits and he is here in the music industry to stay.

Uncle Kracker, real name Matt Shafer, got his start when he signed his first record deal with Detroit Indie Label at the age of 15. At this point he was already best friends with Kid Rock, which would end up being a relationship that would benefit both of their lives drastically.

Uncle Kracker co-wrote some of Kid Rock’s hit songs like “Forever,” “Cowboy” and the No. 1 hit from 2008’s “A Summer Long.” He also contributed to many of Kid Rock’s albums like the multi-platinum Devil Without A Cause.

Uncle Kracker then decided it was time he went solo, so he debuted 2000’s Double Wide, which charted as No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200. After this success he worked even harder on his second album No Stranger To Shame, which ended up being a Gold-selling album in 2002.

His third album Seventy Two and Sunny came out in 2004 and he enlisted the help of Kenny Chesney on one of the tracks. He returned the favor by singing on one of Chesney’s tracks “When The Sun Goes Down,” which topped Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. The duo did so well together that they decided to go on an arena tour together.

After a five year break from debuting new albums, Uncle Kracker got back into the scene recently with the album Happy Hour. The album was produced by Grammy-Award winning producer Rob Cavallo. The two ended up making a huge hit for Uncle Kracker’s comeback.

With many years of experience and accomplishments under his belt, Uncle Kracker is one performer that should not be missed out on.

Steel Panther is a glam metal band from Los Angeles, Calif. and are known for their profane and humorous lyrics as well as their exaggerated on-stage personas.  Formed in 2000, the band was also known as Danger Kitty, Metal Shop and Metal Skool.  Steel Panther succeeded in becoming one of the most popular tribute band in Calif., even winning a contest of “Best Tribute Band in the Universe.” Thanks to the increased popularity, their live shows began to be attended by a growing number of fans. Many celebrities have also appeared on stage during their concerts, including Dane Cook, Kelly Clarkson, Pink, Tom Morello, Scott Ian, Tony Romo, Paul Stanley and many more.  
 
Rock Sugar is a Los Angeles based band known for their mash-ups of pop music and hair metal from the 1980s.  The band claims that the sound was achieved when the metal band was stranded on a desert island in 1989 with a CD player, plenty of batteries and the CD collection of a 13 year-old girl.  Their mission is to mash-up just about every band of the eighties and nineties into one big mega-mix of classic rock goodness. If you like Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” and Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” they have them together in one song, “Don’t Stop the Sandman.”  How about Queen with Motely Crue in “We Will Kick Start your Rhapsody.”  

Wanted
is an incredible replication of the music of Bon Jovi that was created with one purpose in mind, to have a fun concert environment.  The band is based in Los Angeles and is comprised of professional musicians who embody the style, vibe and atmosphere of a live Bon Jovi show that plays to rave reviews and sold out venues.
