Dual Headliners Dirty Honey and Mammoth WVH Perform in Sacramento for the Young Guns Tour.
Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey have joined forces for a thirty-one day tour together around the United States. After making strong waves in 2021 in tours of their own– with Mammoth WVH becoming newly Grammy-nominated, and Dirty Honey opening for The Black Crowes (most nights to standing ovations) and Mammoth WVH playing stadiums with Guns N’ Roses.
The Young Guns Tour is in support of both artist’s self-titled debut albums; Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey, both released last year. Both bands saw their debut singles – Dirty Honey’s “When I’m Gone” and Mammoth WVH’s “Distance” – occupy the #1 position on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart. In addition, both bands’ debut albums made quite impressive bows; Mammoth WVH debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, and Dirty Honey – the band, totally independent with no label affiliation – claimed the #2 position on that chart.
During the first sold out crowd of the tour, Sacramento’s Ace of Spades was packed on Friday, February 25th. From the start, audience members waited in anticipation for the dual headliners to begin.
When Dirty Honey began, they were met with wild cheer. Marc LaBelle’s vocals were clean, pronounced, and filled with an old rock and roll soul. Near the end of the performance, LaBelle climbed on the main bar and interacted with fans in the crowd. Guitar solos provided by John Notto throughout the night appeared effortless as the instrument sung through the bones and coursed through the floors up to the ceiling. Corey Coverstone’s drums and Justin Smolian’s bass pulled each individual sound together seamlessly with their own impressive talents.

And not much later, Mammoth WVH shared a sound that brought breaths of awe into the lungs of the audience as Wolfgang Van Halen’s vocals soared across the stage. Complimented by guitar playing that equally complimented his own vocals just as much as it stood out on its own, he stood center stage and showcased his wide range of musical talent.
Sacramento’s crowd shared a sense of companionship and amazement at the two acts, filling the night with an experience that was said to be unforgettable by many.
