Sharpsville , Pennsylvania – Live music is back unmasked and Thelma’s Sports Nook had the three prong attack last week with hit after hit and enough music to satisfy the most ardent of fans.
Up first was local opener Bonneville but judging talent by the time slot is a major mistake in music and one you should never do . Playing some classic rock to the delight of fans along with an original of vocalist Paul Skowron former band White Noise ( Party In The Rust) you can see why this artist was signed to Atco records with his band Noisy Mama back in the day. The guitar work was done to perfection by former Celtic Frost guitarist Ron Marks who brings a nice rock and metal edge to the music . The drums and bass were played to perfection by Paul Guzman ( bass ) and Mark Munyon ( drums )
Not to be outdone Chip Znuff and The rest of Enuff Z Nuff hit the stage with a fury. I saw them last when they were on tour with Tom Keifer and to say they were amazing is an understatement .I was looking forward to the hits and almost hits and just damn good songs . The melodies and music just blended into a nice smoothie for the ears . On a side note Chip is one amazing bass player, almost lead bass player if you can image that as well as sings at the same time. New Thing is still my favorite song by the them but the new songs are really starting to over take the spot on my playlist . The rest of the band consists of Tory Stoffregen: Guitar, Tony Fennell: Guitar,Dan Hill: Drums
Up next and being prepared to dominate the stage is headliner Faster Pussycat, fresh off the release of their new single NOLA ( a totally rockin song by the way ) .This is the fresh and vitalized Faster Pussycat with over two years of clean living which makes you feel like its 1989 again and the Sunset Strip is alive again . The stage was packed and the temperature and the band were hot as molten lava as a well oiled machine gun blasting your senses . The line up is tight and contains
Taime Downe - lead vocals ,Xristian Simon - guitar ,Sam "Bam" Koltun - guitar ,Danny Nordahl - bass ,Chad Stewart - drums,
Playing all the hits the band was an unstoppable force , this is something we all needed , to get out of the house and enjoy being alive again , you , me ,the band , everyone . Until next time see you at the show !
