The Voodoo Hawks: Straight Outta Quarantine
Stargazers Theatre presents The Voodoo Hawks: Straight Outta Quarantine!
The VooDoo Hawks are a Colorado Rock & Roll Institution.
Blending their instruments and vocals with Americana, Blues, Cajun, & Roots Rock, they’ve become a spellbinding force that can’t be denied. When asked to describe their brand of music they simply call it ”Roadhouse Rock & Roll.”
Formed in 1998, they averaged over three hundred shows per year and became a mainstay at major motorcycle rallies and A-list music festivals. Their new found popularity placed them on stages playing along with such legends as Blackbery Smoke, Tab Benoit, 38 Special, Leon Russell, Jeff Healey, Dick Dale, Johnny Winter, Marshall Tucker, The Outlaws and many more. They’ve built their fan base the old fashion way, on the road & one fan at a time.
At a young age, Rikki Dee Hall was immersed in the influences of Gospel, Country, Blues, and Rockabilly in his hometown of Walhalla, SC. As an adult, he has shared the stage with many of the top bands of the time including The Allman Brothers, Grand Funk Railroad, Savoy Brown, Humble Pie, and Z Z Top to name but a few. After moving to Colorado by way of the US Army, Rikki Dee met guitarist Steve Petrohoy in 1994.
Guitarist Steve Petrohoy began playing in 1969, attributing his influences to Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Dickie Betts, Gary Moore, Vince Gill, and Brad Paisley. Originally from Bethlehem, PA, Steve joined the band in 2013 and brings a soulful touch to their trademark sound. Every bassist’s role is to hold the bottom down, and no one does it better than Todd Michael. Born in Fort Worth, TX he immersed himself in wide range of musical influences ranging from Queensryche to Tori Amos to Alice In Chains. Todd brings a hard-edged vibe to the band’s blues rock sound.
Rounding out the band’s lineup is Rosendo Rodriguez who proudly claims his influences as Don Brewer, John Bonham & Michael Shrieve. Born and raised in Los Angles, Rosendo developed his own unique style that adds much to the heart and soul of The VooDoo Hawks. His abilities as a rock solid drummer make a perfect match for Todd’s bass prowess, forming a powerhouse rhythm section.
Over the past 23 years, The VooDoo Hawks live performances have become legendary and their performances at Stargazers are always a welcomed treat. They will be kicking off their “Straight Outta Quarantine” tour here in their hometown of Colorado Springs, CO in support of their latest album, “Blood Red Moon” on Elecoustic Records.
