For Immediate Release
Everlast Takes Over Sunset Strip With Kid Rock, Mickey Avalon, and Cypress Hill For Historical Career Retrospective Performance
Hollywood Celebrities Sean Penn, Owen Wilson, David Spade, Woody Harrelson & Chuck Liddell, All Came Out To Celebrate Everlast’s Musical Career
Grammy award winning rapper and singer-songwriter, Everlast took over Hollywood’s infamous Sunset Strip this past weekend for a unforgettable performance at the Key Club. The performance celebrated Everlast's musical career spanning the past two decades with songs from his “Whitey Ford Sings The Blues” solo album, House of Pain and La Coka Nostra releases, as well as guest performances from Kid Rock, Cypress Hill, Danny Boy (House of Pain), and Mickey Avalon. Hollywood’s A-List of actors, musicians and athletes, all came out to catch the historical show, including appearances by Sean Penn, Owen Wilson, David Spade, Emile Hirsch, Woody Harrelson and Chuck Liddell.. The monumental event was filmed for a one-hour HD NET special slated to air in early 2010.
The diversity of musicians, actors and artists who showed up to support Everlast this past weekend is a testament to his boundary crossing career over the past 2 decades. He has been a fixture within the rap and rock communities from his beginnings in the early ‘90s. Everlast has created a collection of timeless songs that are still played just as much today, as they were when they were originally released. His recorded works with House of Pain, his blues-based solo albums and new hip-hop group La Coka Nostra, have given fans a wealth of music to enjoy for years to come.
With millions of records sold, a Grammy win for his songwriting work for Carlos Santana and most recently an Emmy nomination for writing and performing the theme song to Saving Grace, Everlast has big plans coming together for 2010. As much as the Key Club performance was a retrospective, it was a hint at even larger things to come.
