The Hooters

Bursting onto the Philadelphia music scene in 1980, The Hooters quickly became a huge success along their native East Coast. Their unique blend of ska, reggae and rock n roll was a fresh and powerful sound and in 1983 The Hooters released their first independent album "Amore", which sold over 100,000 copies.

Their 1985 debut release "Nervous Night" quickly achieved gold and platinum status all over the world. Rolling Stone magazine named The Hooters the "Best New Band of the Year" in 1985. That year just kept getting better as The Hooters were chosen as the very first band to perform at LIVE AID in Philadelphia. With unforgettable songs such as "Day By Day", "And We Danced", "Where Do The Children Go" and "All You Zombies" The Hooters quickly became a household name.

The Hooters released five studio albums between 1983 and 1993, a live album in 1994, and retrospective collections in 1996 and 2001. In addition, numerous other collections, live recordings and bootlegs were released in the U.S. and Europe. More recently, a new studio album was released in 2007, a live double album in 2008, a five song EP in 2010, and a new double live album in 2017.

The band continues to perform for enthusiastic audiences at sold-out shows in the USA and Europe, and sounds better than ever.
