"NERD HALEN ft. Hal Sparks will make your event a party and your party an event!"

- Articulate Fan


Nerd Halen is the explosive result of combining the music of Van Halen, a legendary band known for in-your-face sex appeal and guitar wizardry, with the hilarious antics of the most staunch nerds, seemingly taken directly out of an 80’s B-movie. Nerd Halen is a tribute band positively unlike any other, where comedy and unapologetic Rock’n Roll is delivered by well-known actor/comedian Hal Sparks and his musicians who worked in musical comedy theater and backed up over 40 major label recording stars in multiple genres. Nerd Halen has to be experienced to be believed, so tape up your old glasses and get ready for a party!


HAL SPARKS, an Actor/Comedian known from shows and movies such as Lab Rats, Talk Soup, Dude, Where’s My Car, Queer As Folk and many more. Sparks is the ultimate front man with a quick wit, a voice that truly resembles David Lee Roth and boundless energy. 

CALEB RAPOPORT Is the only tribute band guitar player to have an artist's relationship with Edward Van Halen's equipment brand EVH GEAR. The GIT schooled guitarist and well-known Van Halen aficionado, had the idea to create a Rock show mixing the high-energy music of Van Halen with downright nerdy, intellectual comedy. 

VICTOR BRODEN, a bass player/musical director with a resume that features over 40 major-label recording artists including The 27 Show, Dokken, LeAnn Rimes, Little Big Town and Richard Marx among others, also handles the signature Van Halen high-harmonies.  

JEFF PAGE, a veteran of the L.A Van Halen tribute band scene, honors the almost impossible Alex Van Halen drum parts.  

This super group takes themselves as un-seriously as humanly possible while providing many laugh-out-loud moments over the course of the show. As well as  maintaining a deadly serious commitment to doing the upmost  justice to the original recordings. NERD HALEN  has to be seen, and heard, to be believed.
