(Concert Review) TESLA with special guests VOICES OF EXTREME & BAD MARRIAGE Live at The Paramount in Huntington, New York (9/17/2019)

It was a wild night of hair-metal music and nostalgia as one of the most talented bands out of the genre, Tesla ripped through their brand of hair-metal at The Paramount in Huntington, New York.  Regional metal mainstays Voices of Extreme and Bad Marriage served as special guests on this night of music.  Boston's own Bad Marriage kicked off the raucous night of music. Bad Marriage is composed of Jon Paquin on vocals, Mike Fitz on guitar, Ian Haggerty on guitar, Todd Boisvert on bass, and Michael Delaney on drums.  The band did a great job with their boogie-woogie style of rock as they incorporated a lot of fun and swagger with dashes of sleaze into their music.  Along with their songs and stage presence, they did an exciting rendition of "Walkin' The Dog" by Aerosmith.  They will be ope...

Slaughter and Lynch Mob Keeps Fans “Up All Night and Moving” in Iowa!

Those that know me know that I love a good banger of a night of music, especially music that is the golden age for the millenial/Generation X generation.  Where the hair was big, the guitars were loud, the spandex was tight, and the music was even louder.  It was the music that people listened to in order to unwind after a tough week at work, problems with relationships, and that need to go on an escapade and leave their troubles and cares behind.  Recently, Slaughter with special guests Lynch Mob rocked the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa.  Lynch Mob was the direct support act to take the stage. It was great to see Oni Logan back with legendary guitarist George Lynch, Sean McNabb, and Jimmy D'Anda, who all make up Lynch Mob.  I will tell you this, seeing Logan's charismatic stage prese...
