Tribute band to perform in Spencer on Friday, Feb. 22

Fans of the 1980s should get ready have some fun.

Hairball is back.

The 1980s tribute band will be returning to the Clay County Fair & Events Center to perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22.

The band is a popular one that plays hits from some of the biggest bands of the ’80s. But they don’t just play the music. They do so much more than that. They personify the musicians.

“Hairball is one of the top tribute bands in the United States featuring music from Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, Aerosmith, plus many more,” said Jeremy Parsons, the CEO of Clay County Fair & Events Center. “In their 19 years together, Hairball has developed quite a following because of their show — it is more than a concert — it’s indoor fireworks and a huge production.”

The Clay County Fair & Events Center has hosted Hairball in the past, but they hadn’t performed there recently.

“It has been several years since we had Hairball here in the Events Center so we thought it was time for a return visit from these great rockers,” Parsons said. “February and March are always busy times here at the Fair & Events Center – Hairball on Feb. 22, Family Fest (our one-day children’s event) on March 2 and Rock’n Bac’n Brew’n (our craft beer and bacon festival featuring The Johnny Holm Band) on March 30.”

Parsons believes that this show should appeal to lovers of this era of music.

“If you are a fan of ‘80s rock music, this is the show you won’t want to miss,” Parsons said. “It’s always fun to bring a show with this type of following here to Spencer. They have passionate fans who are fun to watch.”
