"Rock the Night" will feature a live potpourri of '80s tunes, as the local acts pay tribute to the likes of Def Leppard, AC/DC, Journey and Motley Crue.

It won't be the first Reagan-era tribute that Voodoo bassist Troy Miles has played.
"That seems to be how it is," he said. "It's always a retro thing for a while. The '90s are coming up next."

The show also will feature a "Best Dressed in the '80s" contest, with winners awarded $200. And the promoters are promising that the light and stage show will live up to the era's excessive standards.

Although Voodoo Honey will slip a few originals into the mix for Saturday's shindig, they'll concentrate on nostalgic numbers from the era of power ballads and spandex, when MTV was in its infancy and hard rock ruled. And longtime listeners can expect some surprises.

"We actually learned some more stuff specifically for this show," Miles said. "It's stuff that we've never heard anyone do, like 'Seventeen' by Winger.

The band will bring plenty of experience to the fest, with a lineup filled with scene veterans, as the group's lineage includes local funk favorites Rev. Right Time and Fiends in Wonderland. The band originated in 2005, when members of cover acts One Pump Daisy and Thrust pragmatically decided to join forces.

"We both had different strengths," Miles said. "Both bands were doing pretty decently, so we just kind of took each others' gigs."

It was a combination that worked, and the group's high-energy stage presence and versatile song list quickly struck a chord with local music fans. Miles said the band -- which also includes keyboardist Bob Harvey, bassist John Nitz, drummer Kamm Skeels and guitarist Boomer -- is booked through October.

The group also has begun working on its debut CD, albeit casually. Like many acts these days, the band members are learning to deal with the new dynamics of the record industry as they prepare to release the disc.

"To me, the industry is almost going back to the '50s," Miles said, "single-oriented with all the downloads. It's good to have something on hand to sell at the shows, but we'll do some downloading, too."

Until then, the band will continue to hone its on-stage mix of catchy covers and original compositions.

"We've got a wide range of writing styles," Miles said. "Everyone contributes, musically and lyrically. It might be someone's song, but we all put our parts on.

"We wanna have the capability of doing either covers or originals, and market ourselves either way."

Hailing from Flint, Michigan; Voodoo Honey was formed in April of 2005. After just a single practice, Voodoo Honey hit the streets and took the area by storm. With the bands straight ahead “In your face” high-energy rock style and tireless touring schedule, Voodoo Honey quickly became one of the most sought after bands in Michigan.

Voodoo Honey is best known for putting on a true “Rock Show” Their dynamic stage presence is only rivaled by the band’s musical talent. Lead vocals are shared by Boomer and Miles who each bring their own unique high energy style that gets the crowd on their feet and singing along. Guitar duties are shared by 2 axe handlers: Scott Davidson on lead guitar brings a ripping "silky smooth" approach that commands attention and captivates audiences. Boomer shares lead duties and brings a soulful "blues rock" rooted approach with a touch of flash that takes the music to the next level. Rounding off the super group on bass guitar is the unique "bass thumping" style of Troy Miles who incorporates his rock/funk bass influenced style to give Voodoo Honey’s music its recognizable trademark "foot stomping" sound. Finally, back on drums driving the bus is Kamm Skeels, who incorporates flash into his straight up “rock your face off” drumming style.

Members of Voodoo Honey have played in some of Michigan's most successful bands such as The Reverend Right-time & the 1st Cuzins of Funk, Jedi Mind Trip, Lazy Bones, One Pump Daisy, Zug Izland, Crotch, Fiends in Wonderland, Thrust and Kevorkian, just to name (drop) a few.

Voodoo Honey has shared the stage as supporting act for a variety of versatile national acts including George Clinton and the P-Funk All-Stars, Sponge, Katherine McPhee, Nazareth, Warrant, Jackyl and Quiet Riot just to name a few. Members of Voodoo Honey have also had the good fortune to work with the prolific producers Nile Rodgers and the Bass Brothers.

In 2007, Voodoo Honey recorded a 5 song “demo” EP that (although never actually released) created a lot of buzz and attention from several independent labels. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond the bands control, that project had to be tabled (for now).

Currently, the band is working on their upcoming and highly anticipated full length CD.
