Formed mainly as a way to get free drinks in Hollywood, THE DIZZY REED BAND (a.k.a. HOOKERS N BLOW) was put together in early 2004 by East Coast natives Alex Grossi and Matt Starr after Dizzy was called on to appear on BEAUTIFUL CREATURES' second record. "I have always been a huge GN'R fan," Grossi explained. "Having Dizzy play on the record was great, so we decided to take it a step further and put it out on the road. The response so far has been great; you forget just how big GUNS N' ROSES are, not to mention the fact that Dizzy has now been a member of GNR for 14 years.
"On our last tour, we would show up to the clubs and there would be a stack of fan mail from all over the world for Dizzy — it's pretty amazing"
HOOKERS N BLOW will be performing a mix of GNR favorites, classic rock standards and a few "surprises."
