The Fabulous Shirtheads Dance, Show, & Revue was formed in 1982 when Mick Haugen and five other legends of the stage, started what would become the Midwest’s premier party band: “The Fabulous Shirtheads”. In 1986 Alan Banta and Clark Engbrecht joined the group. Joe Clements came along in 2009, Joe Worrel jumped on board in 2012, and Kevin May, who had been a special guest in the group for many years, became a full time member in 2013. Over the last 32 years the Band has played thousands of gigs, carrying on a mission that Mick and the boys started way back in 1982. Today and as always… these guys are relentless in their approach to move you, shake you, and make you dance your cares away!
Over the years the Band has performed with many recording artists and legends of the music industry, including the Spencer Davis Group, Sam and Dave, Blue Oyster Cult, Peter Frampton, Delbert McClinton, Buddy Guy, The Turtles, Paul Revere & The Raiders and others. In concerts for as many as 50,000, the Band has consistently been a crowd pleaser, and this has led to the 32 years of sustained popularity.
Known for onstage comedy and antics, along with a solid, danceable play list, the Band appeals to a diverse audience. This appeal has received national attention is such publications as Spin magazine which spotlighted the Shirtheads in an article tracking a day of rock and roll across the United States.
The Shirtheads have been called a “fixture” of the Wichita music scene, and plan to continue playing and having a good time for many years to come.
