Dawn takes a trip back to the days when '80's hair metal was hot! She joins a local band, based out of Blair County. "Hair Force One" has been around since the '80's. They're a tribute band that plays all the hits from the decade of decadence and they were ready to give Dawn a crash course in Glam Rock 101.
The guys helped Dawn learn the "rock face" for her on stage debut. Then, they taught her how to master the mic stand maneuvers. Finally, she learned the instrument she'd play for her live performance: The tambourine!
After getting a thumbs up from the band on her tambourine work, the guys decided she couldn't go on stage with them without a mega metal makeover.
Watch this story to see the band pick Dawn's stage outfit and give her a big hair band look that even the guys from "Poison" might be jealous of!
You'll also see the live performance from Hair Force One with their new band member, recorded at The Altoona Railroaders Museum.
