Event Details

Dokken is an American heavy metal and hard rock band formed in 1978. They split up in 1989 but reformed four years later. The group accumulated numerous charting singles and has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide. The band was nominated for a Grammy in 1989.

Since then Dokken have toured extensively with Mick Brown back on drums (BJ Zampa filling in on drums when Mick is busy touring with Ted Nugent). Sean McNabb ex of Quiet Riot and Great White is on bass, along with Levin on guitar and Dokken on vocals. In 2010, the band opened for the Scorpions on select dates of their U.S. tour. On 1 March 2010 Dokken digitally released Greatest Hits, a collection of re-recorded songs from their ’80’s albums with two new tracks, to iTunes and Amazon.com. The physical album with additional tracks was released on King Records (Japan) on 21 April 2010 and is available in the United States through Cleopatra Records.

In 2012, Dokken followed up LIGHTNING STRIKES AGAIN with the hard hitting BROKEN BONES. This release showed growth from the band musically while incorporating the classic sound from the band’s past as well as their previous album. The song “Empire” was the first single, and also featured a futuristic video with it.

As you can tell, the road that Dokken has traveled has been long and complicated, but there is no end in site. Dokken continues to tour and rock the world with their brand of driving heavy metal. What’s next on this road? You’ll just have to jump on for the ride and see for yourself!

~About hIPNOSTIC~

hIPNOSTIC is a heavy rock band from Orange County, CA. Our music is driven by a passion for heavy contagious riffs, powerful rhythmic grooves, thought provoking arrangements that filter through a positive and hopeful lyrical message. The band draws inspiration from artists like Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Chevelle, Seether, Shinedown and Red.

Our new single “Ain’t No Sunshine” truly embodies what the band’s music is all about and where we are headed in the future. It’s a unique heavy rock version of the classic Bill Withers tune with a dark moody spin. The band released its debut record “Dissolve Me” which garnered many positive reviews. Debra Stocker, Editor of All ACCESS said, “Dissolve Me is by far one of the best hard Rock/alternative sounding albums I’ve come across this year”. Modern Fix Magazine had this to say, “The talent level is high, the range is varied, the voice is superior, the guitar riffs are catchy and there are numerous standout tracks on “Dissolve Me”.

There is a commercial shine to this made-for-radio band”. hIPNOSTIC received 4 nominations at the ALL ACCESS L.A. Music Awards, Best New Group, Best Hard Rock Band, Best overall album of the year, and won Best Alternative Male Vocalist. Their song “Ritual” was featured in the movie “The Dead Matter” and was included in the movie soundtrack. They were also fortunate that Fox Sports Net picked “Ritual” and “Heels On A Plank” for their “Re:Evolution of Sports” show.

In 2011, Blake and his long-time musical brother Rob Swanson reunited to push the band to a whole new level. The band continues to reach new melodic territories and create a broader sonic landscape. The intertwining of their guitar and bass personalities gives the band an even heavier rock sound. In 2016, the line-up was complete with the addition of powerhouse drummer Marty Wilcox.

hIPNOSTIC is currently in the studio wrapping up the final stages of their next full-length release and promises it will be every bit the riff heavy journey that was set in motion with our new single “Ain’t No Sunshine”.
