On Saturday, Jan. 12, Bruno and the Hooligans will make their Hemet debut, performing their spectacular Tribute to Bruno Mars at the Historic Hemet Theatre. This show will be the first in Season One of the HHT 2019 Tribute Mania Concert Series.
This amazing tribute band includes a high stepping male vocalist with the look, sound and moves of Bruno Mars and a very talented group of musicians. Together, they replicate the exciting mix of Funk and R&B that is uniquely Bruno Mars. This show is guaranteed to pack the dance floor and keep the audience cheering and clapping from the first song to the last.
