Known as “The World’s Most Authentic Tribute to Van Halen”, FAN HALEN sets the stage for a night with Dave, Eddie, Alex and Michael with a true-to-life tribute to not only the band but the spirit of an era!
Based in Southern California, FAN HALEN has been together over 10 years playing to enthusiastic crowds all over the US as well as the globe including Europe, Japan, South and Central America, Canada and Mexico.
Ernie Berru as David Lee Roth is so uncanny and convincing it’s got to be witnessed to be believed. From Diamond Dave’s unmistakable costumes to his signature scream and unique vocal delivery, Ernie delivers the swagger and bravado second only to Roth himself!
Derek Fuller as Edward Van Halen recreates Edward’s classic guitar tone, playing every riff and solo with as much fury and technique as Edward himself, while capturing all of the enthusiasm and flash of Eddie's engaging live personality.
Brian Nussle as Michael Anthony looks strikingly like Michael and supplies the low-end bass groove, high-end energy, and most importantly the high harmony backing vocals, which is essential in delivering the quintessential signature sound of Van Halen.
Scott Brooks as Alex Van Halen behind his enormous circa 1981 18-piece double-barreled bass drum Ludwig kit delivers the thunderous rhythms and heavy artillery with all the enthusiasm, energy and ear-to-ear grin that Alex brought to Van Halen.
You won’t believe your eyes or ears when you come to a FAN HALEN show as you’ll feel like its 1984 all over again! From the look of the band, the choreography, the note-for-note reproduction of the greatest rock songs ever written to the sonic energy of the performance, nothing is overlooked...in other words, while FAN HALEN is on stage they are Van Halen!

“As the original bass player of Van Halen, I can tell you that Fan Halen NAILS IT! I first saw these guys at the Van Halen Rising book launch party. I had a chance to meet and play with the band. What a great group- very humble and having fun playing early Van Halen. After the show I sent Edward Van Halen a picture and he replied, "who is that? he looks more like me than I do!" If you have a chance to see Fan Halen- do it! The music, the look and the show is spot on!” - Mark Stone
“I really enjoyed the band at the Van Halen Rising book release party... Fan Halen certainly brought back some memories and good feelings, job well done for sure.” - Rudy Leiren, Eddie Van Halen’s Guitar Tech
“As a member of the Van Halen road crew for years and years (ret.) I can honestly say that so far as capturing the music, the energy, the excitement, and especially the fun of the band in its glory days you won’t find anyone better than Fan Halen. Do yourself a favor and take a trip back in time with the boys for a rocking good time.” - John Watkins 5150
“I hired Fan Halen to play at my book launch party in Pasadena last fall. They performed for a crowd of old school Pasadena Van Halen fans -- I'm talking people who saw Van Halen years before they were famous, back when VH was a backyard party band. A tough crowd to please, right? Not for Fan Halen. I had numerous people come up to me and tell me how impressed they were with how faithfully Fan Halen reproduced the classic VH vibe and sound. I can't say enough good things about this band and its members. If you're having a party hire them, and if you're on the fence about going to see them ... buy a ticket now. Trust me.” - Greg Renoff, Author of “Van Halen Rising”
