Hurricane is a powerful hard rock band from Los Angeles that formed in 1984 by Guitarist Robert Sarzo, and Bassist Tony Cavazo. Cavazo, former Quiet Riot and Snow bassist, was introduced to Sarzo by the late Quiet Riot frontman, Kevin DuBrow in the early 80ʼs. DuBrow suggested they put a band together and they did just that. Cavazo and Sarzo being the siblings of the classic Quiet Riot lineup guitarist and bassist Carlos Cavazo and Rudy Sarzo, decided to create a monster. They recruited singer Kelly Hansen and drummer Jay Schellen and hit the ground running.

The band gained world wide acclaim with the release of their first album,Take What You Want. The album and constant touring led to the band getting a major label deal with Enigma Records and the release of their chart topping album, Over The Edge. Over the Edge was Hurricaneʼs most successful album. Propelled by a powerful, yet melodic hard rock sound, the album charted in the top 100. It featured a cover of Alice Cooperʼs “Iʼm 18” as well as the band's most successful top 40 hit, "I'm on to You" in 1988. The title track, “Over the Edge” was also released as a single.

Hurricane toured the world with Cheap Trick, Iron Maiden, Stryper and The Michael Shenker Group. Releasing the albums: Take What You Want (1985), Over the Edge (1988), Slave to the Thrill (1990).

Hurricane disbanded in the early 90ʻs and are now reborn in 2010. Cavazo and Sarzo have reunited with new but equally potent members, vocalist and guitarist, Andrew Freeman, and drummer, Mike Hansen.

Andrew Freeman has done double duty as a singer and guitarist for several notable bands. namely The Offspring, Lynch Mob, BulletBoys, Thirty Stones and worked with famed producers Bob Rock, Simon Philips and Zuess.

Mike Hansen has toured and recorded with George Lynch of Dokken/Lynch Mob fame, Paula Abdul, The Pointer Sisters, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather (Toto), George Clinton of Parliament Funkadelic. He has worked with famed classic rock producers Bob Ezrin (Kiss), Eddie Kramer (The Beatles), Simon Phillips, and Andy Johns.

Hurricane will be touring and releasing a new CD in 2011.
