About Great White

The core of the legendary Great White would be formed in 1977, when vocalist Jack Russell joined up with guitarist Mark Kendall. After seeing a few members come and go, including future Ozzy Osburne bassist Don Costa, the band would solidify in 1982 with Gary Holland on drums and Lorne Black on bass. After self-releasing the EP Out of the Night and the full-length Shot in the Dark, the band was signed to EMI in 1983. In 1984 they would release their eponymous full-length album and tour with metal masters Whitesnake and Judas Priest.

Great White would be committed to heavy touring schedules with bands Ratt and Tesla, and would not release another original album until 1991's Hooked. This considerably accomplished album would feature two covers: the saucier image being a mermaid dangling from an anchor mid-air, while the more conservative cover depicted the mermaid mostly under water. 1992's Psycho City, however, would sell less than 500,000 copies, and EMI gently dropped the band with 1993's The Best of Great White.

The band would release three more original albums (1994's Sail Away, 1996's Let It Rock, and 1999's Can't Get There From Here) that would do moderately well. In 2000, the band split. Kendall and Russell would each embark on solo projects with little success. The two would eventually overlook their differences and in 2002 reformed as Jack Russell's Great White, touring with Great White's classic hits as well as Russell's solo material.

During a performance in February 2003 at The Station in Rhode Island, pyrotechnics sparked a fire that would claim the lives of over one hundred people in the club, including Great White guitarist Ty Longley. In the years that followed, the remaining members of Jack Russell's Great White would make reparations in the form of one million dollars for the fire's victims and their families, an appearance on Larry King, and performing at benefit concerts for the victims.

Today, Kendall's Great White and Jack Russell's Great White are both performing to sold out shows across America.

Previous Hits

It was thanks to Alan Niven that the band would get signed by media giant EMI. Niven had managed Motley Crue's early self-produced efforts, and Great White recorded their EP Out of the Night on Niven's independent Aegean label. Niven then persuaded Los Angeles radio stations to give the band heavy airtime. Great White's concert audiences grew from hundreds to thousands, and the band was signed before the end of 1983.

Great White would gain mainstream traction with 1987's Once Bitten. The album would be certified platinum and contained the yearning breakout single "Rock Me." The band really hit their stride in 1989 with Twice Shy. The album featured their smash hit cover of Ian Hunter's "Once Bitten, Twice Shy." This rambunctious album would go double platinum within the year. That same year, the band would be nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Hard Rock Performance.

In 1992 the band released the well-constructed Hooked, which was certified gold and featured the classic track "Desert Moon." After Hooked, Great White would begin a denouement, releasing solid albums such as 1994's Sail Away and 1999's Great Zeppelin, a tribute to their idols, with moderate success.


The band is named after Jack Russell himself. The story goes that, as Russell stuck his head out a car window while driving past the Troubadour club in Los Angeles, a young fan commented, "There goes Great White." Russell earned this moniker from his platinum-blond hair, white shoes, white jumpsuit and white guitar. Manager Niven overheard the comment and decided it would be the perfect band name.

The Great White Concert Experience

The Great White concert experience has all the adrenaline-pumping excitement of a shark attack with none of the drawbacks. Catching a performance by these virtuosos of hair metal, heavy metal and good old fashioned rock is a once in a lifetime opportunity that you will remember for years to come. Whether they're rocking the stage with their timeless hit "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" or treating you to their lesser known gems, Great White delivers a show that is both energetic and ageless. Don't miss this summer's hottest hard rock performance!
