About Great White
Changes? Yeah, they’ve had ‘em. Fallen off the path? Guilty. Slowed down? No way. Never.
Best known for their Grammy nominated Best Hard Rock Performance hit, “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” Great White has sold over 10 million albums worldwide, has six Top 100 Billboard hits, nine Top 200 Billboard albums, two platinum albums, and clocked the top of MTV video four times. Page 3 of 3 To experience their hits live in concert—“Rock Me,” “Mista Bone,” “Save Your Love,” “House of Broken Love,” and “Lady Red Light”—is to ride an emotional wave of sultry connections, arousing lyrics, and an all-out marathon of hard-hitting orchestrations.
Great White continues to tour worldwide and in the last two years logged nearly 200 dates in several states and countries. The band celebrated numerous milestones that included several sold-out performances, a return to the Zurich, Switzerland’s Rock Im Tal Festival, and for the first time ever, a handful of intimate, acoustic performances.
Great White is Kendall (guitar), Lardie (guitar, keyboards), Desbrow (drums), Snyder (bass), and Ilous (vocals). Since 1982, the Great White sound has captivated audiences worldwide with crushing blues-based guitar riffs and swagger that invokes an emotional high for anyone that listens. The band’s core writing team of Lardie and Kendall forged numerous hits over the years, and when Desbrow joined in ’85, the grooves hooked an amazing stride. For nearly a decade, Snyder has merged his unforgiving rhythm to Desbrow’s relentless percussion. And, in 2011, Ilous’ feverish energy and far-stretching vocals melted perfectly into the Great White mold. Kendall calls Ilous “the most consistent singer I’ve ever shared the stage with and a great all-around musician.”
“Great White is fueled by performing live – we love that energy that you can’t find in the studio,” Lardie said. “But, when you do get us working on a new record, there’s a bond that is forged – it’s almost like alchemy…it’s years of stories, heartache, momentum and love that we put to track.”
