About Hairstrike

Jake Viceroy (a.k.a. Matthew Eernisse) Lead vocal, rhythm guitar Jake Viceroy grew up on a pig farm in Laredo, Texas, where hog-calling helped him to perfect the traditional high-pitch metal shriek. He feasted on a steady diet of heavy metal throughout high school, studying in detail the genius of performers like Ronnie James Dio, Paul Stanley, Klaus Meine, Rob Halford, and of course Jani Lane, and eventually deciding to devote his life to the pursuit of metal awesome, for its purity as an art-form, and "for the chicks." He has never had it officially measured, but he has a vocal-range of "about 18 octaves." Whether it's the raspy/creepy Stephen Pearcy; the over-dramatic Dokken; the super-shrieky Sebastian Bach, or the soaring, OMG-pretty Steve Perry; Jake has studied it, and mastered it all. Jake picked up the guitar in college to further his increase his overall skill and heavy metal greatness. He mostly sticks to playing his late-80s Les Paul, because…..”Hello?? It's a Les Paul." J.C. Sleet (a.k.a. David Weiskopf) Lead guitar, backup vocal J.C. started playing guitar when he was eight years old, at the feet of his grandfather Randall "Fuzzy" Winston, one of the great country-western songwriters of our time. J.C. soon discovered heavy metal, and his legend was born. J.C. studied all the greats: Jimmy Page, George Lynch, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, and that guy from Nitro. Once J.C. had mastered the true Zen of shredding, he decided to bring it to a broader audience, forming Hairstrike as a way to bring this teaching to the masses. When the volume on his amp reaches the right amplitude, rifts sometimes open in spacetime, because, "science." Don't ever ask J.C. about 'das blikenlights' -- there are too many ever to be explained, and the hours of wasted talking could be better spent shredding. Also, who wants to run the very real risk of weaponization? There is one strange and yet inescapable fact of J.C.'s life that has followed him throughout his career as a guitarist, and in his life in general: you can't spell 'Sleet' without 'leet.' Cole Stone (a.k.a. Christian Gallegos) Bass guitar, backup vocal Cole Stone is a stone-cold. He hails from Newport News, Virginia, and built his first bass from two-by-fours and chicken-wire when he was seven years old. Cole's strange, preternatural gift for harmony-singing emerged shortly after that, when he accidentally broke all the windows in the house while part-singing in the ultrasonic range with the family dog. He heard his first heavy metal track on local FM radio, and after seeing the leering, sneering faces on MTV's "Headbanger's Ball," he realized it was his destiny to be a heavy metal star as well. Cole is the strong, silent type -- he wears his stoicism on his sleeve like some men wear their feelings. Feelings are not important -- heavy metal is what's important. He may appear to be standing like heavy stone, but you can bet your life that Cole is gathering his 'ki' to bring the bass and vocal attack that flattens the crowd. Kitt De La Rosa Drums Don't mess with Kitt. Bay Area's Premier 80's Hair Metal Tribute Band.
