Panama ROCKS!!!!!

I got to experience Panama for the first time last year and I cannot wait for the next time. The band is 100% on point, in appearance and especially in musicianship. They are seriously the next best thing to seeing VH in the flesh. I saw them at Corktown Tavern in Detroit and the crowd was PUMPED. Can't wait to catch them again!

I saw Panama at a club in Detroit and was blown away , not only did they look and act like early Van Halen!! But they sounded exactly like them!!! I heard they were gonna be at the Prime Event Center in Bay City the following night , so we drove up , and got to witness a show that was even more amazing than the night before!! Can't wait till they come back!!!!

Panama

Panama duplicates in great detail, the sight, sound, and zany stage antics of the original Van Halen (1979-1984). Our lead singer IS David Lee Roth on stage..from his signature scream, split jumps, high kicks, and mannerisms to his banter with the crowd. The band features phenomenal musicianship that will make you feel like you've been transported back in time. PANAMA is truly one of the most entertaining tribute acts in the world. PANAMA is available for shows worldwide. PANAMA performs at large and small indoor and outdoor venues, festivals and events including corporate and private parties. Since PANAMA is a concert quality tribute act, our typical show is two straight hours preceded by an opening act. However, the band can adjust their sets to accommodate any situation including: two one hour sets..three sets and also one set as an opening act. PANAMA is also one of the most reasonably priced acts in the industry. They are thoroughly professional and easy to work with. We self promote all of our shows through our website, fan base, social networking, and radio contacts. We want to do everything possible to insure a good draw for the venues we perform at.

The team providing the talent:

Larry Kuchta

Drums- "Alex"

Jon Sarich

Bass guitar, acoustic guitar, keys- 'Michael Anthony"

Ric D'Rose

Lead singer/frontman- "Diamond David Lee Roth"

Tony Fondale

Guitar-"Eddie"
