OPENING FOR PAT TRAVERS





OPENING FOR PAT TRAVERS

Playing with Gary Hoey at the Rockbar was an amazing time, and we're excited that it looks like the first of many shows there for us.  Up next?  Reconnecting with long time friends Pat Travers as they come to town, ready to burn the roof off the place.  We'll be direct support for what promises to be a night full of high energy rock and roll.

Discount tickets available only at our store!





March 7, 2015
The Coach House

San Juan Capistrano, CA
6 PM dinner/8 PM show


OPENING FOR Y&T

This was so much fun the last time, we had to do it again!  We'll be back in beautiful San Juan Capistrano, opening for our fellow Bay Area band Y&T!

Discount tickets available only at our store!




March 12, 2015
Studio Seven
110 S. Horton St.
Seattle, WA
7 PM

OPENING FOR PAT TRAVERS

We're excited to be joining Pat Travers for three dates on this West Coast run, and this time we're heading to points FAR north - to Seattle!  We're incredibly excited to make some new friends at what we hear is a really cool venue, for what we hope will be the first trip of many to our northernmost city.  Also on the bill, Seattle band Palooka.  Advance discount tickets available directly from Studio Seven by clicking here.




March 13, 2015
Tonic Lounge
3100 Northeast Sandy Boulevard
Portland, OR
9 PM


OPENING FOR PAT TRAVERS

And speaking of returning to venues to play with friends, this will be our third time at the Tonic Lounge, and our second time with Pat Travers.  The last show was a sellout, and helped introduce us to the amazing audiences in Portland - and vice versa!  We can't wait to head to, well, points north, once again!

Discount tickets available only at our store!




April 28, 2015
Rockbar Theater
360 Saratoga Avenue,
San Jose, CA
7 PM


OPENING FOR AL DI MEOLA

We kind of think the Rockbar is going to become our new home away from home...this will be our third show there, and will undoubtedly be one of the hottest of the year - opening for the one and only Al Di Meola.  We've played with him in Southern California, but never close to home - and based on our experiences, expect a packed house and a show to remember, as Al is one of the instrument's true greats, a legend in every sense of the world.  We'll be opening, followed (in a reprisal of our first big show opening for Michael Schenker back at the late Last Day Saloon in Santa Rosa) by the uber-talented Doug Doppler.

Tickets available directly from the Rockbar Theater by clicking here. This show will sell out; advance tickets highly recommended!

Night one of a two night stand at Ramona Mainstage.  Our first show touring with a national act was with Michael Schenker, in Santa Rosa...this time, its a few hundred miles south, at our San Diego home, Ramona Mainstage.  Michael has been in top form and this tour reunites him with Herman Rarebell and Francis Bucholz (Scorpions), in support of a new critically acclaimed album.

Also on the bill, our good friend Taz Taylor.

Discount tickets available only at our store, including a special two-night package!

Also on the bill, our Bay Area friends Like Mind Protocol, and San Diego shredder RDG.
