Warrant and Winger

WKLH Hometown Rock 96.5 logo102.9 The Hog logo

WARRANT was founded in 1983 by teenagers Erik Turner and Jerry Dixon and is an American rock band through and through. The band’s first album—which includes “Sometimes She Cries” and “Heaven”—sold over three million copies and launched them into MTV stardom back in 1989. Their sophomore album, Cherry Pie, spawned the massive hit by the same name, and the band became one of the top-grossing touring acts of 1991. Albums released in 2011 and 2017 put the band back on top Billboard music charts, and their recorded cover of Merle Haggard’s “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink” has been named the official song of the Professional Bull Riding Association.

Warrant’s signature style of rock music is very catchy and yet very melodic and remains the band’s signature sound today. Over the course of their career, Warrant has sold over 10 million albums worldwide. The song “Cherry Pie” has taken on a pop culture life of its own, being featured in countless movies, TV shows, commercials and the hugely popular video game Guitar Hero II. After more than three decades of rock, touring all over the country, these rockers can’t wait to play not only ALL the hits fans know & love, but also new tunes/videos like “Louder Harder Faster” & “I Think I Will Just Stay Here & Drink.”

WINGER, formed as an American hard rock band back in 1986 by New York City frontman, Kip Winger. Their debut album, Winger, came out on Atlantic Record’s label in 1988 and achieved platinum status in the United States and gold in Japan & Canada. Winger spawned such hits as “Seventeen” and “Headed for a Heartbreak”. In 1990, Winger was nominated for an American Music Award for “Best New Heavy Metal Band”. Their follow-up album, In the Heart of the Young, was released in 1990, again, reaching platinum. It peaked at #15 on Billboard’s Top 200 and hits off this album include “Can’t Get Enuff”, “Miles Away” and “Easy Come Easy Go”.

Winger has made a name for themselves with relentless touring, while winning back fans and critics alike because of their exceptional musicianship, Kip Winger’s powerful vocals and the band’s incredible songwriting. In 2006, they released their 4th studio album, IV, which is the most musically progressive album of Winger’s career. Lyrically, much of the album is sung from the perspective of U.S. soldiers stationed overseas. In 2009, Winger released their 5th studio album, Karma. In 2014, Winger released their 6th studio album, Better Days Comin’, which entered at #4 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums Chart and at #85 on Billboard’s Top 200. The band continues to tour and just finished writing their seventh album, which is expected to be released in the first half of 2023.
