Hurricane is a powerful hard rock band from Los Angeles that formed in 1984 by Guitarist
Robert Sarzo, and Bassist Tony Cavazo. Cavazo, former Quiet Riot and Snow bassist,
was introduced to Sarzo by the late Quiet Riot frontman, Kevin DuBrow in the early 80’s.
DuBrow suggested they put a band together and they did just that. Cavazo and Sarzo
being the siblings of the classic Quiet Riot lineup guitarist and bassist Carlos Cavazo
and Rudy Sarzo, decided to create a monster. They recruited singer Kelly Hansen and
drummer Jay Schellen and hit the ground running.
The band gained world wide acclaim with the release of their first album w/ producer
Kevin Beamish, Take What You Want. The album and constant touring led to the band  
getting a major label deal with Captial / Enigma Records w/ producer Bob Ezrin 
and the release of their chart topping album, Over The Edge. Over the Edge was Hurricane’s  
most successful album. Propelled by a powerful, yet melodic hardrock sound, the album  
charted in the top 100. It featured a cover of Alice Cooper’s “I’m 18” as well as the band’s  
most successful top 40 hit, “I’m on to You” in 1988. The titletrack, “Over the Edge” was also  
released as a single.
Hurricane toured the world with Cheap Trick, Iron Maiden, Stryper and The Michael Shenker
Group. Releasing the albums: Take What You Want (1985), Over the Edge (1988), Slave
to the Thrill (1990).
Hurricane disbanded in the early 90’s and are now reborn in 2010. Cavazo and Sarzo have
reunited with new but equally potent members, vocalist and guitarist, Andrew Freeman,
and drummer, Mike Hansen.
Andrew Freeman has done double duty as a singer and guitarist for several notable bands.
Namely The Offspring, Lynch Mob, Thirty Stones and worked with famed producers Bob
Rock, Simon Philips and Chris “Zuess” Harris.
Mike Hansen has toured and recorded with George Lynch of Dokken/Lynch Mob fame,
Paula Abdul, The Pointer Sisters, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather (Toto), George Clinton of
Parliament Funkadelic. He has worked with famed classic rock producers Bob Ezrin
(Kiss), Eddie Kramer (The Beatles), Simon Phillips, and Andy Johns.
Hurricane will be touring and releasing a new CD in 2011
