Mainstage at the Marion popcorn Festival – GREAT WHITE
Since 1982, the Great White sound has captivated audiences worldwide with crushing blues-based guitar riffs and swagger that invokes an emotional high for anyone that listens. The band’s core writing team of Michael Lardie and Mark Kendall forged numerous hits over the years and when Audie Desbrow joined in 1985, the grooves hooked an amazing stride.
Their arsenal of songs include the Grammy nominated Best Hard Rock Performance hit, “Once Bitten, Twice Shy.” Great White has sold over 10 million albums worldwide, has six Top 100 billboard hits, nine Top 200 billboard albums, two platinum albums and clocked the top of MTV four times. To experience their hits live in concert – ‘Rock Me’, ‘Mista Bone’, ‘Save Your Love’, ‘House of Broken Love’ and ‘Lady Red Light’ – is to ride an emotional wave of sultry connections, arousing lyrics and an all-out marathon of hard-hitting orchestrations.
California-based Great White continues to tour worldwide; the band members are Kendall (guitar), Lardie (guitar, keyboards), Desbrow (drums), Scott Snyder (bass) and Mitch Malloy (vocals), who joined the band in July 2018.
