I know this doesn't really fit in here, and I know what you’re thinking…”WIMPY!”…But you are so wrong.
The hairspray, spandex, and makeup are LONG GONE, and what you get is a good standard hard-pop rock/metal act. Kip's voice is still in good shape. Reb Beach looks more like Jerry Cantrell than his old, big hair days, and plays like a madman possessed. What a TOTALLY UNDERAPRECIATED TALENT. If you saw him playing on the Whitesnake tour you know what I mean.. And Rod Morgenstein can still hold his own with anybody.

Kip played keyboard on several songs, and acoustic 12-string on a few, as well as bass on everything else. A treat to see one of the big hair bands from back in the day up-close and I mean CLOSE.
Pretty full crowd, NO BARRIER at the stage, dinner tables were out, and I drank my beer from an actual GLASS!

Awesome setlist! I saw these guys last year with Ratt (Winger blew them out of the water). One of the best shows I have ever watched. So much talent in that band.

Just saw them last night in Boston, although they didn't play Right Up Ahead, same set as you saw. Great band, very underrated.
