About Andrew Hagar aka Drew Hagus

Drew Hagus, also known as Andrew Hagar, is an American Singer-Songwriter, son of Sammy Hagar, and brother of Aaron Hagar. After spending years toiling away in journalism, the Tequila industry, the video game industry, and as an MMA and Kickboxing coach, Drew decided in late 2015 to try his hand at song writing and performing. He formed the Appalachian Murder Bunnies, a folk duet project with Kelly Kristofferson, and things accelerated very quickly from there.

Drew spent all of 2016 touring in support of Kris Kristofferson and Willy Nelson, traveling the world and keeping the spirit of modern folk music alive, opening at historic shows such as the Newport Folk Fest and Milwaukee Summer Fest. After a heartbreaking split and band breakup post-tour, Drew decided to focus all of his creative energy towards writing original music and getting back on the road. Believing in a “words-first” approach, Drew weaves his own brand of lyrics-driven Garage Folk with his merry band of heathens, The Brothers Hagus, with accompanying vocal harmonies by his multi-talented brother, Aaron Hagar.

Inspired by the folk protest movements of the past and also their Hardcore Punk rock roots, Drew & The Brothers Hagus aren’t afraid to speak on heartbreak, taboo social issues, the current political climate, and the toxicity of modern journalism and social media. These ideas are reflected within their debut EP, dropping in Spring 2017.

What Passengers Think

This was my 11th cruise overall but my First RLC! And I can simply say it’s the BEST I have been on. It was more than anything I could have imagined. Everyone was there for one purpose, and that was to ROCK OUT! I loved all the bands, I loved how everyone was just happy (tough to come across now adays). I am HOOKED. I initially didn’t think I’d be able to attend VII, (going on a Hawaiian cruise in April 2019), but I’m working it to make it happen (my suite mates already booked me so I have a room, just gotta figure out $$-but I’LL BE THERE). I met so many great people, the music is my genre of music and it’s just a great time! Looking forward to many more, and it really is for a great cause (NAHA). m/ ROCKSTAR!!!!

Jeni, This Cruise Was Meant for ME! Jeni, This Cruise Was Meant for ME!

This was our first RLC, we REALLY wanted to do this one because of Uriah Heep and The Circle. The fact that Steppenwolf, Blue Oyster Cult, and Bad Company were on it also just sweetened the pot. It was our first time seeing Todd Rundgren, Gary Hoey, Quiet Riot, Artimus Pyle and Elvin Bishop, who were all great! We caught parts of some of the other bands and unfortunately some not at all. We didn’t leave the ship at all because there just too much GREAT music!
The artist we met were all very nice. Loved the Meet and Greets. And now we have new bands to follow.
My only complaints ( and they wouldn’t stop my husband and I from returning) were the saving of the chairs with towels, and the staff in the buffet room seemed ill equipped to handle the crowds, which were predictable. Also, I thought the buffet room should have had longer daytime hours, that would have helped with tables not available. But we weren’t there for the food or the destination. We were there for the non stop music. Gary Hoey and the All Star Jam was the best surprise, we didn’t move for 3 hours, didn’t want to miss a second of that great show. Gary was a terrific host.
We will be back! Oh and fun swag too!
