Nerd Halen

Nerd Halen is a supergroup featuring Hal Sparks, an actor and comedian known from shows like Lab Rats, Talk Soup, Dude Where’s My Car, and Queer As Folk. Sparks is a dynamic frontman with a voice reminiscent of David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar. Caleb Rapoport, a lead guitarist and EVH GEAR artist, conceived the idea of blending high-energy Van Halen music with nerdy comedy. Victor Broden, a bass player and musical director with a resume featuring over 40 major-label artists, delivers the signature Van Halen high harmonies. Jeff Page, a veteran of the L.A. tribute band scene, expertly plays Alex Van Halen’s challenging drum parts. This supergroup combines humor with a serious commitment to honoring Van Halen’s original recordings, making Nerd Halen a must-see and hear experience.

Nerd Halen will be performing on Friday, July 12 from at 8 p.m. at the Crystal Bay Club. Get tickets at
