Cleveland, Ohio – The bands, the sights ,the sounds, and the excitement of the 1980’s came together in a thrilled venue earlier this week . Cleveland’s own House of Blues played host to Sirius XM Hair Nation tour and they could not have picked a better venue. The line up was the perfect cocktail for fun and they brought plenty of it with them.
Enuff Z’ Nuff opened the night with a great mix of new and old songs the new songs off of Diamond Boy were classic Enuff Z’ Nuff such as Diamond Boy and Metalheart along with such hits at New Thing and Fly High Michelle and Baby Loves You. The band was in top form and didn’t skip a beat . I highly recommend checking them out !
Up next were the gunslingers of Bullet Boys. Marq Torien is one amazing front man and guitar player , his energy and stamina is better then players a third of his age , yes he is that amazing . The band was tight as usual and Ive seen them on festivals and clubs and this was a great place to see them at, as it is the perfect intimate size venue for the pure fury that is the Bullet Boys . Smooth up In Ya along with several others were the songs and hits they played .Videos and records do not do this band justice , they must be seen live to be appreciated ,I give them an eleven .
The headliner was none other then Captain Jack himself .Jack Russell’s Great White ( as if there is another ) played to a thrilled audience .To be honest its public knowledge that Jack has had some health issues but with that being said you would not know it from the amazing front man on stage that night .Spinning and kicking and singing the best vocals of the night .The band is amazing with great guitar work from the duel six string demons of Robby Lochner and Tony Cardenas along with a sold bass and drum section . This is one of the true rock stars left . They played all the hits but you should check out the latest’s release ” He Saw it Comin ” by far a top notch act and Jack still rules the airwaves .
If any of the bands are anywhere near you in the future I recommend checking them out it is not something to be missed !
Cleveland, Ohio -The Sirius XM Hair Nation Tour arrives at Cleveland’s House of Blues next week and here are the top five reasons you must make it your go to destination Monday night !
1- Nostalgia- Admit it ,you hate getting old. The bills, the jobs , the responsibilities , it makes you long for the days of youth and no responsibility when music was king and world was your oyster. You can relive that, even if its just for a few hours with friends and perfect strangers who you have shared history of music and times.
2- The Line Up – It is literally a who’s who of late 80’s early 90’s music .You can leave the stone wash jeans at home thou but the bands will be bring the hits . I have seen all of the bands before several times and this is one show not to miss .If you want to ” Save Your Love “or just get freaky and ” Smooth Up In Ya ” or just get high on a ” New Thing ” this is the night of hits.
3- Jack Russell’s Great White – This is one of my favorite artists and not just the classics , his latest album ” He Saw It Coming” it one of the best releases in the last two years and it proves to the critics Jack can still sing , he can still write and guess what he can rock n roll better then most of the generation out there.
4-The Bullet Boys – I have seen Marq Torian and the band more times then that I can remember and he ” ALWAYS ” puts on a killer show . Need awesome guitar leads , he has them , killer vocals , yep he has those too, catchy chorus to sing along with , he has you covered its like a one stop shop for rock n roll and if your are not a fan you will be once you see him live !
5- Enuff Z ‘Nuff – The band Rolling Stone listed at the next huge thing ( no one saw grunge coming ) prove why they are still relevant and kick it with classic hits as ” Flying High Michelle ” and ” New Thing ” Chip and the boys put out a new release recently and even thou I have yet to hear it I hope they have copies at the show !
