Wow, nice. In all honesty, along with Skid Row, Dokken, Firehouse and LA Guns (Assuming it's the Phil Lewis fronted version only) the Kivel bands are easily the best in that whole line up. I obviously love Bret Michaels, but can take or leave his solo stuff.

Isnt Jizzy Pearl fronting the Tracci Guns LA Guns now?

 

Jizzy is fronting Tracii's version which had Marty Casey for the last year but Phil's version with Steve Riley, Stacy Blades and now Kenny Kweens(Beautiful Creatures) is also active. It's Tracii's version that is playing this event.

Scott just left the band this past week and Kenny just joined after that.

I think I read somewhere that Scott has some full time gig in Vegas with a big local Covers band of some kind.

Well you could f#@k with their pre-show dinner and give them all food poisoning so bad that they couldn't play.

Just a thought. :lol:

  • 3 weeks later...

All 5 acts rocked!!!!

 

My fav in order but it's really tough with the top 3:

 

1A - FarCry - It was awesome hearing these tunes live and even more awesome seeing Pete pull off all of those killer solos especially the one on "Have it All". Great songs and great performance from the band including vocalist Mark Giovi who really did a great job keeping the audience invloved. Drummer Tommy John kicked butt too just as he did with Rockarma last year.

 

1B - Bombay Black - I've seen these guys twice and both times they were killer. They even threw in two new tunes including the awesome "Demons Down" as in I'm Drinking My Demons Down. Great live band.

It was also great hanging with these guys on the bus and drinkng from the jagermeister machine. BB is 4 awesome guys and are one great band.

 

1C - Tango Down - Wow the new singer Alex is one hell of a frontman and the crowd seemed to love them as they did with both above bands. Every song went over well but "All Fall Down" was one of the highlights of the weekend.

 

4 - Talon - With new vocalist Dave Friday just joining the band before this event he had to read most of the lyrics from the stage but besides that they were very good especially their lead guitar player who just shreds. They were all nice guys too especially Kory and Dave. Looking forward to some new music with Dave on vocals who has a more Jeff Keith/Robert Mason blues soaked voice and overall I like it more than Chandler's voice.

 

5 - Goodbye Thrill - I will admit I didn't catch all of GT's set but from what I saw and from what I heard they sounded great and I really like the cd.

 

 

Looking forward to seeing all of these bands next year!!!!!

 

 

I have many pics of all of these bands on my facebook page for all of my friends.

I agree with the rundown all but I believe that Talon edged out Tango Down by a smidge. If they would have played Wrecking Ball they would have easily won the Talon vs. TD war. I did like the energy of TD but my hats off to Kory and the rest of Talon for putting on a show with a new lead singer that kicks some serious ass! He may not have known all the lyrics but he put on a very respectful show.

 

Either way, it was a kick ass weekend with Pete, Rick, Wes and the rest of the entourage'. Already lookin' forward to next year :banger:
