Last night at Harrah’s Las Vegas, classics such as “Livin’ On A Prayer,” “Here I Go Again,” and “Back In Black” were given an impeccable and transformative rendition by none other than Tenors of Rock. The highly sought-after vocal band of five of the best male rock voices in the UK comprised of Gareth Richards, Dai Richards, Jimmy Denning, Jonathan Williams, and Tommy Sherlock.
The idea of forming Tenors of Rock first came to the members in 2012 when they realized they wanted to reinvent the standard male vocal group and create a different kind of high-profile rock experience. By putting their own twist on classic and contemporary rock hits such as “Sweet Child O’Mine” and “God Gave Rock N’Roll To You,” they hope to transform familiar tracks into a unique experience for their audience.
Tenors of Rock have distinguished themselves from other vocal groups with their exceptional vocal range, harmonic complexity, and heavy metal-choral style. In 2012, they were one of the Final 7 on X Factor, where they received huge public support and high praise from the judges. Nicole Scherzinger has even said of them, “I love men singing their balls off!” In the same year, they had the honor of performing in front of over 150,000 audiences in Hyde Park for the London Olympics. In the past, they have covered artists such as Queen, Prince, Bon Jovi, and Guns N’ Roses.
Performing with the Tenors last night was bassist, vocalist, songwriter, and American Music Award winner Dan Grennes. In addition to fronting his own band Uncle Pumpkin, he was a former bassist on Broadway musicals Rock of Ages, American Idiot and The Toxic Avenger, and has played with Melissa Etheridge, Billie Joe Armstrong, Glen Tilbrook, and comedians Mario Cantone and Jim Breuer. What’s more, he has been wearing the Slinger Hip Strap for three years now, and can be seen on stage last night with it. He has said of our hip strap:
“The Slinger Hip Strap is saving my back and neck! After playing seven shows a week for nearly two years, the difference between the hip strap and a conventional one is night and day. Not to mention almost no one will notice the difference visually. Strap adjustments not only allow waist adjustment, but also the angle of the neck, which is great for neck heavy basses. Thanks Tom for addressing our health and comfort as players!”
