Atomic Punks Tickets for Sale

The Atomic Punks are a tribute to early Van Halen. Formed in 1994, the Atomic Punks have performed well over 300 shows in places like Hollywood, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Seattle, Denver, Honolulu, Andover, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, and most recently Salt Lake City, and most importantly, Pasadena where Van Halen started their meteoric rise to stardom.
Voted "Best Tribute Band" by LA's "Rock City News" three years in a row, the Atomic Punks have created a national following that continues to grow by leaps and bounds all the time. The band's co-founder and lead singer, Ralph Saenz, has also been voted "Best Singer" four straight times by the magazine, and Van Halen themselves have endorsed the Atomic Punks!
In his 1997 auto-biography "Crazy from the Heat," former Van Halen front man David Lee Roth referred to the Atomic Punks as "The best tribute to Van Halen ever!" Dave cemented his admiration and appreciation for the Punks' talents by hiring original axe man Bart Walsh to play guitar on his "DLR Band" tours from 1999-2001. Bart's replacement, Brian Young, recreated Eddie Van Halen's sound and furious guitar playing so precisely, that Dave again looked to the Punks, and took the guitarist out on the road in 2002 for his national tour with fellow ex-Van Halen front man, Sammy Hagar.

Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony performed a set with the Atomic Punks in Pasadena, CA, and said "I feel like I am back in 1982 performing with the old band!" Anthony added, "The Atomic Punks rock!" Anthony recently joined the band again on stage, at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA on January 31, 2003. He played nine Van Halen classics with the band including, "Runnin' With The Devil," "Hot For Teacher," "Somebody Get Me A Doctor," "Light Up The Sky," "You Really Got Me," "Panama," "Bottoms Up!," "Mean Street," and "On Fire."
"Metal Edge" magazine boasts, "Ralph Saenz does David Lee Roth better than Dave himself!" Ralph's recreation of David Lee Roth's live persona is so uncanny, it must be witnessed to be believed. From Dave's trademark costumes, to his signature scream and unique vocal delivery, Ralph does Dave proud as the ultimate tribute to one of rock's greatest frontmen.
Current guitarist Russ Parrish, formerly of Rob Halford's band Fight, recreates Eddie Van Halen's classic guitar sound, playing every riff and solo with as much energy and technique as Edward himself, while capturing all of the enthusiasm and flash of Ed's engaging live personality.
There is one important point the band always makes clear at their shows. The Atomic Punks don't think they are Van Halen, they simply love to play old Van Halen and it shows in their amazingly realistic, power-packed stage show. No Van Halen tribute band captures the note for note performance and feel of an old show like the Atomic Punks. If you love vintage Van Halen, and wish you could experience and relive the energy the "Mighty" VH created with "Diamond" Dave behind the mic, you do not want to miss the Atomic Punks. They are the ultimate tribute to early Van Halen!
