They call their music Vamp Metal. They Took to the Stage and really WOWd The Crowd! Doing some Dio and very well might I add . Which just happens to be singer Melody favorite artist. She was wearing all black and at one point was holding a sword and did a great job on the Dio song Holy Diver. She stood on a box that had a cross that lit up and was all over the stage too. Thanks to these young people Rock is Not dead! So go see them Very impressive and the crowd loved them. Next up was Jamie St. James band Black N Blue. Jamie too Rocked out all over the stage smiling and interacting with the fans. People Loved them. My first time seeing them live and I too loved them . Very High energy show & great set! Next was The Bullet Boys. Even though they had a 3pm start time they held nothing back and killed it like they were the headliner. Drummer Jimmy D’Anda Came out wearing a white hat, white shorts and a cape To the cheering crowd. Singer Marq Torien was a Great Showman as usual doing his moves on stage and interacting with the fans. Near the end of their set they had a few of the girls from Paradise Kitty band bring out Giant Balloons on stage. The crowd was having a blast! There were balloons everywhere! Up next was the band Vixen. Vixen is now headed by Lorraine Lewis ( Femme Fatal). They proved that Girls can Rock too and look great too! The fans loved them! Lets not forget their Awesome keyboard player Tyson Leslie who did a Great Job. Great Set !! Slaughter was up next! (always a fan favorite.) A smoky stage fit well with their song “Burning Bridges”. Mark Slaughter along with Dana Strum & Jeff Blando were Rocking it out to the screaming fans. ( Dana & Jeff had Just Played With Vince Neil Friday). Slaughter did all their hits. Famous Rock photographer Mark Weiss was there selling his book “ The Decade That Rocked” but took time to Jump on stage with Slaughter to get a few photos. Also joining Slaughter on stage was Jeff Scott Soto during their song “ Up All Night” . Great Show!! Next up was Great White. They had switched Singers since I saw them last now Mitch Malloy is taking over on the duties of singing lead. He did a Great Job and was interacting with the Fans and had them singing and Dancing.
