Multi-genre, Los Angeles-based artist Mickey Avalon makes a tour stop at South Shore’s Whiskey Dick’s Saloon on Friday, Dec. 16, at 9 p.m.
With music that can be classified as hip-hop, rap, punk and sometimes folk, Avalon rose to prominence in the early 2000s under the Interscope Records label.
“Through Interscope, Avalon released his now-classic self-titled debut album, which showcased his rhyming style and indulgent lyrics.
“Mickey’s contagious demeanor and unique writing style has made him a hot commodity in the music industry as hip-hop artist Young Jeezy and producer Jermaine Dupri jumped at the chance to collaborate with him for a Boost Mobile commercial.
“Avalon then joined forces with rock acts the Happy Mondays, and Unwritten Law, with whom he co-wrote the radio hit ‘Shoulda Known Better,’” states the musician’s online biography.
The artist has also performed alongside renown musicians like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Travis Barker, Snoop Dogg and Slightly Stoopid.
Avalon’s hits include fan favorites “Jane Fonda” and “Mr. Right.”
