Night Ranger truly epitomizes the sound of the 80's while at the same time transcending it. Since their reunion in 1996, they have brought their guitar-crunching, melodic brand of Hard Rock into the 21st century with unparalleled talent, energy and creativity.
Night Ranger's legendary hits "Sister Christian," "(You Can Still) Rock in America," and "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" are songs that have each significantly impacted popular culture and expanded their ever-growing fanbase since the band's inception. Night Ranger's contributions are featured in multiple entertainment realms, including the Broadway musical "Rock of Ages" and hit videogame series "Rock Band" and "Guitar Hero." The band has also been recognized in such significant films and television shows as Boogie Nights and American Dad.
The remaining founding members of the band have impressive resumes. Jack Blades was also in the supergroup Damn Yankees with Ted Nugent and Tommy Shaw, with whom he also released the now classic Hallucination album and the more recent Influence. His songwriting credits include Aerosmith, Cher, Alice Cooper and Ozzy, to name just a few. Brad Gillis appeared on Ozzy's Speak of the Devil live album, while drummer Kelly Keagy has had a successful solo career of his own.
Somewhere In California is the culmination of the band's work as a whole to date and celebrates the band's 30th anniversary with incredible melodic cuts and hard rocking numbers. Night Ranger's new album has everything the fans could ask for!
Thus far in 2011 the group has toured Mexico and Puerto Rico with long-time collaborators Journey. Night Ranger will tour Japan in June before rejoining Journey and Foreigner in Europe (serving as headliners in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, and the United Kingdom) before Jour their North American Tour July-October 2011 in celebration of their ninth studio album.
