“SIX PACK LIVE” at the Roseland Theater

If you were not at the Roseland Theater  the weekend of the 17th and 18th of January 2014,  you were denied the absolute kickoff show of the year 2014!  Two exciting nights were filled with mind-blowing performances by the popular following bands:  Jennifer Batten (solo performance), Shoot To Thrill (AC/DC tribute), Appetite For Deception (Guns N Roses tribute), One From Many (O.F.M.), Jukebox Heroes (Foreigner Tribute) and rounding off the night with Stone In Love (Journey tribute).

Jennifer’s mad guitar skills opened the weekend reminding the audience that this girl can rock!  Shoot to Thrill astounded the audience with bringing on a guest appearance from Mark Mullaney who blazed the stage on the bagpipes.  Appetite For Deception rounded the evening off with talent steaming from all corners of the stage.  Andrew Greene’s drum solo mesmerized the audience leaving them hungry for more.

Night two kicked off with fairly new group One From Many (O.F.M.) showcasing their dynamic originals.  Band member Josh “Trigger” Elie captivated the audience with his guitar solos.  By the end of the set, One From Many left the stage rapidly increasing their popularity.  Jukebox Heroes followed O.F.M. displaying a fantastic performance that rocked the crowd from beginning to end, and everywhere in between.  Stone In Love capped off the weekend performances leaving the audience packed up front belting out Journey tunes right along with powerful performer Kevin Hahn.

For whatever reason you were unable to make the shows, do not be dismayed.  You can check out the calendar for upcoming performances.  I’ll see you there! RNR!!

Rad Rev at the Crystal Ballroom!

Exciting, nostalgic, and flat out non-stop entertainment!  Radical Revolution, well known with the groupies as “Rad Rev”, had another 80’s celebration where the crowd was able to dig through their closets and pull out some attire to fashion the Madonna decade!  Rad Rev was joined by so many guest appearances that night -Jordan Harris, Evan Nathanial Berry, Rich Ray, and lead  singer of the band Stone In Love–Kevin Hahn!  Christie Bradley was a sensational addition to the group lending her voice to belt out tunes from artists like Madonna!  The encore presentation of Hot for Teacher showed just how HOT Jason Fellman performs!  Look for these artists and more in the upcoming show at the Roseland the weekend of January 17th and 18th where you can experience 6 bands in two nights for a mere $20!  There is no way you would want to miss this show–it is a little teaser of a summer event to look forward to, “Harefest 4!”

The Bar Pilots landed at Red Lion JB!

Pilot Rob Wessels navigates the lead vocals while wingman Mark Logan is on guitar.  Vince Adame rocks it on bass while Liam MacManus keeps time on drums.  These guys were able to please the variety of tastes from Billy Joel to Tom Petty…if you request a song, I’m sure they’ll know it!  The night was a great way to kick off the start of the new year.  The relaxing atmosphere with views of the captivating Columbia River gave the audience a chance to revive from New Year’s celebrations just a few days prior.  I personally was able to re-energize enough to get on the dance floor that accommodates the largest of crowds.  The Bar Pilots have an upcoming show January 17 at the Springs Bar & Grill located in my hometown of Vancouver also known as “the ‘couv!”
