ALL BETZ ON!

What happens when you take five guys from different bands who have each been playing for over 30 years, put them in a room and ask "so what songs do you know"?
Answer: Simply. Amazing. Classic. Rock.

"It was like magic. Everyone knew their chops and it was all music we grew up with. From the opening chord of 'Separate Ways', it was obvious these guys were made to perform together. It was simply 'The Best of the Best'!"

All Betz On! focuses on classic rock from the 70's and 80's. The music they all grew up with. Music that's second nature to all of us, but songs you just don't hear live. Those songs that make you want to put the top down & turn the volume all the way up on a hot summer night, played the way we remember hearing it. But don't be fooled: All Betz On! can crank out modern rock with the best, delivering a well rounded offering of music that spans the last four decades.

Featuring highly sought-after members of former bands Tightrope, Dillinger, Sassy, Crossfire and Pandora, All Betz On! has proven to be the go-to act for simply amazing classic rock and has taken Rock & Roll by storm!
