Steel Panther brings its metal mayhem to the House of Blues

Hair metal will never die as long as Steel Panther is around.

In Las Vegas, Steel Panther is practically an institution, equal parts parody and tribute, fitting easily into the tourist-packed entertainment landscape.

But the glam-rock party band has achieved a lot more than a reputation as one of Sin City’s favorite recurring acts. Consisting of Michael Starr on vocals, Lexxi Foxx on bass, Stix Zadinia on drums and Satchel on guitar, the LA-bred band has released five full-length albums, including last year’s acoustic-oriented concert LP, Live From Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage, and this year’s studio album, Lower the Bar. The comically nostalgic group has been touring the world for a decade, popping up on major pop-culture touchstones that run the gamut from Dancing With the Stars and Fox NFL Sunday.

More recently, Steel Panther teamed up with Robin Zander for a cover of Cheap Trick’s “She’s Tight,” and in Las Vegas, sprinkled in a rowdy residency at Drai’s Nightclub on the roof of the Cromwell boutique hotel. The band checked back into the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay for two shows this month, a natural home for the catchy, sleazy, always fun Steel Panther experience.
