The Hooters celebrate 30 years!

The Hooters were the featured act at the ZXL Margate ROCK Festival 2010.

The bandmates found one and other as far back as 1970 and formed in the late 1970's. 1980, the band would begin a 30 year odyssey of writing, recording, touring AND never allowing their own heads or feet leave the ground. They LOVE their friends AND love their fans even more. They tasted international pop stardom in 1985 with the release of And We Danced. They wrote the song Time After Time, made famous by Cyndi Lauper in the 80's and IF God Was One Of Us' recorded in the mid nineties by Joan Osbourne. To this day they enjoy a rabid following throughout Europe and in Germany in particular. They just returned from Germany and a European summer tour to share with their local fans at the WZXL Margate Rock Festival 2010. The yearly event raises money for Gold Foundation charities locally ($2.7 Mill raised since 1987). WZXL was proud to be associated with a great Sunday night of ROCK and Fireworks attended by an estimateD 10,000 people. Concert Review:

The Band: VERY accommodating, friendly and thankful for the airtime..AND it threw me through a loop because I WAS thankful for the interview time they gave me. Together we really "hyped" on the air together about rain or shine performance when threatening weather set in.
