Quiet Riot

Legendary 80s hair-band Quiet Riot will appear at McGuffy’s House of Rock this weekend on Saturday, March 12. The band will be turning back the clock for a special show with opening acts Desalitt, 8KOunt and Superkreep. Quiet Riot is best-known for their hit songs “Cum On, Feel the Noize” and “Bang Your Head.” The band was founded in the late 70s by guitarist Randy Rhoades, who then left the group to play with the renowned Ozzy Osbourne. Quiet Riot then went on to score massive commercial success with their 1983 album “Metal Health,” which became the very first debut heavy metal debut album to hit number one on Billboard Magazine’s U.S. pop charts and “Cum On Feel the Noize,” which was the very first heavy metal song to break the top five on Billboard’s pop singles chart. Tickets for Saturday’s show are $22 in advance or $25 at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. More information about their show and about Quiet Riot can be found online at www.mcguffys.net or www.officialquietriot.com.
