Relive your glory days with AC/DC Tribute band Hell’s Belles! Even Angus Young, lead guitarist and songwriter for the original Australian rock group AC/DC gave them an endorsement. “The best AC/DC band I’ve ever heard? There was an all-girl band in America, Hells Belles,” he said in 2003. You are not going to want to miss this party happening at Quinault Beach Resort & Casino Saturday, July 24 at 8 p.m. during Hog Wild in Ocean Shores. Hell’s Belles always perform to sold-out crowds. During Hog Wild Weekend, you get the chance to hear them for free!
Hell’s Bells concerts deliver a wickedly awesome evening of talented women performing the best of AC/DC. From “Highway to Hell” to “Back in Black,” you’ll be rocking out until the last chord is struck. This all-female group is dedicated to encouraging women rock fans and works towards rock and roll inclusion by collaborating with other women musicians. Diehard AC/DC Fan? Don’t worry, they are known for their attention to detail when it comes to being a rock-star tribute to the original band. “Hell’s Belles is first and foremost dedicated AC/DC Fanatics,” they say on their website. You don’t have to travel to Australia to have a thrill of a lifetime listening to authentic AC/DC music, Quinault Beach Resort & Casino is bringing them to Grays Harbor with an outdoor concert that is going to blow you away.
