From Louisville Ky., The Velcro Pygmies deliver a nonstop high energy hair metal rock show that you won’t soon forget. The World Famous Velcro Pygmies want to take you on a little journey, and they promise it won’t hurt — unless you want it to.

There are no chocolate rivers or lickable wallpaper, but what their golden ticket will get you is a trip back to a time when music was in its prime. Back when hair was big but rock ‘n’ roll was bigger … back when a 17-second guitar solo transformed a man and his machine into a Rock God … back when fallen angels swarmed the front row like Aquanet to a feathered bang.

The Velcro Pygmies travel the country year round — from the Gulf Shores to the Great Lakes — to share the sights, sounds and stain-washed denim of the glorious ‘80s, schooling audiences on the difference between a rock band and a rock show. From start to finish, they command the stage with a prowess uncommon in today’s industry, and they leave you begging for more.
