Oil your leather, shimmy into those pants in the back of your closet, and prepare for some sick riffs. It’s time to rock.
Experience Van Halen Nation (VHN) live at the Colonial Theatre. Before the show, Don Jamieson, Emmy-award winning comedian and host of VH1’s ‘That Metal Show’, will perform and host a special screening of the documentary short Lost Weekend. The stars of the film, Kurt and Tom, will be present for a Q&A session.
Van Halen Nation (VHN) is the premiere classic tribute to the David Lee Roth era and your ticket back to the ’80s! Based in South Jersey, VHN is going strong on the tribute circuit after a decade of performances. Visually and sonically, VHN is the tribute that best approximates the classic Van Halen. Marc Moore (vocals), Matt Stanley (guitar), Pete Kamenakis (bass guitar), and Chris Nerone (drums) are a powerhouse foursome. Each VHN performance is packed full of signature David Lee Roths acrobatics / screams; Eddie Van Halen’s ground breaking guitar playing; and Michael Anthony and Alex Van Halen’s thunderous rhythm section. Van Halen Nation will transport you back in time when big hair, Aquanet, and MTV were a way of life.
Don Jamieson started his career as one of the young, talented comedy minds at MTV, helping to launch the careers of comics like Jon Stewart, Kevin James, and Jay Mohr. As host of VH1’s That Metal Show, he interviewed legends of rock before a live studio audience. His stand-up CD’s hit the iTunes Top 20 and Billboard Comedy Charts Top 10 and he and long-time comedy partner, Jim Florentine, won an Emmy Award for their work on HBO’s sports-themed comedy show, Inside the NFL. Jamieson and Florentine have collaborated on other shows, including Comedy Central’s Meet the Creeps and Howard Stern’s “Terrorizing Telemarketers”. He’s the writer behind celebrated roaster, Lisa Lampanelli, and spent years opening for Andrew Dice Clay. Jamieson’s sarcastic, observational stand-up act never fails to surprise audiences. Besides performing in clubs and theaters all over the country, he’s been seen at rock festivals like Rock On The Range, the Monsters Of Rock Cruise, and Metallica’s Orion Music + More Festival where he was introduced by drummer Lars Ulrich.
In 1984, Phoenixville’s own Kurt Jefferis just happened to win MTV’s ‘Lost Weekend with Van Halen’ contest: a chance to party with the band for 48 hours. That ‘story of one lucky dude’ and the friend (Tom Winnick) he brought with him, happened to become the documentary short, Lost Weekend (2019), which was an entry at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.
Documentarians Bradford Thomason and Brett Whitcomb are best known for their films GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling and A Life in Waves.
