The calendar says Tuesday but the Whisky A Go-Go was rocking like a Saturday night! Another incredible night of amazing talent and entertainment started with a mind-blowing performance by Heavy Mellow, an acoustic trio with the unusual ability to blend the strains of heavy metal music with the classic and traditional play of Flamenco guitars.
Opening the jam session for the evening was the house band with additional help from the Jason Aldean band – Rich Redmond. On guitar, from the Ultimate Jam Night house band, the Edgar Winter Band and MSG – Mitch Perry. Helping on guitar, he’s played with Johnny Depp and the Kids and from the band Little Caeser – Joey Malone. On keys, from Survivor and Denny Laine – Walter Ino. On bass , the creator of Ultimate Jam Night and The Captain, the Ultimate Jam Night house band, Quiet Riot, Alice Cooper, Montrose, and many more…Chuck Wright. And singing the first two songs, Lights Out in London and Say What you Will, from Mr. Big and Ace Frehley and the house band – Matt Starr.
Shortly after, MC Extraordinaire, Paulie Z was joined by Xavier Muriel (drums) and Stevie D (guitar) from Buckcherry, Johnny Martin (bass) from Tracii Gun, and Alex Kane (guitar) from Little Caesar, LSD, AntiProduct, and The Ramones. They blew us away with a heart-pounding, high energy rendition of Bulls on Parade and Bombtrack.
The night just kept rocking and rolling forward with more incredible artists and musicians, including Joe Retta (Dio’s Disciples, Heaven & Earth, Trans Siberian Orchestra, and The Sweet ), Sean McNab (Resurrection Kings and Lynch Mob), Mike Watt (Minute Men, Firehose, The Stooges), Shane Soloski (Five for Fighting and Brian Wilson) and Koko Powell (Edgar Winter Band).
Once again, the Whisky A Go-Go, together with the Ultimate Jam Night, created an unforgettable evening of rock and roll, punk and heavy metal-Flamenco for music lovers of all ages and genres.
