Motley Crüe, a legendary rock band which arguably defined a generation of metal fans and musicians alike, remains to have a special place in many people’s hearts. Though the band might have played their final concert in 2015, their wild performances and unapologetic debauchery of the '80s will forever remain in fans' hearts, a likeness that Mostley Crüe brings back in full force with their shows.
Motley Crüe has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and released their new single, “Dogs of War,” this year.
Fans no longer have to rely on memories of concerts to hear their favorite songs live again. Thanks to groups like the Mostley Crüe with uncanny similarity in vocals and instrumentals, fans from the Carolinas can enjoy their music live again.
To many fans, Mostley Crüe acts as a portal to the past as they continue to tour around America’s Southern East Coast, often performing in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.
Not only do the band members sound like the well-loved rockstars of the past, but embody them. Many fans rave in reviews about their uncanny ability to mimic their idols and have even higher praise for how they sound covering Motley Crüe songs. Adorning their best rockstar outfits, hair, and make up, Mostley Crüe, like many tribute bands, have the “look” of these iconic bands nailed.
Music industry experts see tribute bands such as Mostley Crüe as an essential part of keeping legacies of classic bands alive. Tribute bands give the younger generations a chance to experience music loved by thousands and hear it live. They keep the music of the past relevant, despite the almost forty years between now and when Motley Crüe first formed.
The tribute band is comprised of Gabriel Pettit in the role of vocalist Vince Neil, Darius Rose as drummer Tommy Lee, Kevin Dollar as guitarist Mick Mars and Miller Barefoot as bassist Nikki Sixx. Formed in Raleigh, NC in 2007, Mostley Crüe quickly grew in popularity amongst rock fans and has played over one hundred live events. The band is very active on Facebook and is supported by thousands of followers who praise the skill and talent displayed by the Mostly Crüe.
According to their Facebook page, the band explained they “had a slow start to the year [and had situations that] kept us from committing to shows until we knew we could do them right,” with the intention to come back better than ever.
