Devil City Angels @Count’s Vampd 10/10/14
What do you get when you put a bunch of musicians that were in huge hair metal bands from the 80’s all together in one band? You get a crazy mix of guys that have a blast on the road and who play all your fave songs that were huge hits when you were growing up with MTV, when it still was ALL about the music and the metal!! With one exception of the singer who has fame in his own right but wasn’t old enough to be in one of those bands and that is Bradon Gibbs. The rest of the band are made up of exceptionally talented Tracii Guns from LA Guns, the ever exuberant Rikki Rocket from Poison and the talented but very quiet Eric Brittingham from Cinderella. You put these four together and you have a whole set-list of rocking hits that will make you rock out with your C**K out! They also have some kick ass originals and one of their songs is going to be featured on ESPN’s NFL Monday night Football starting Nov. 3 and throughout the season. That song is called “All My People”. The band has been rocking America on tour for some weeks now and they stopped in Vampd to bring the 80’s back to the masses at the club on 10/10/14 and they did just that!! Tore shit up!! Being in front of Tracii Guns is always a thrill and he just gives everything he has to the fans. The whole band was tight and Brandon Gibbs has the best voice for this kind of rock and brings style to the band. Rikki Rocket is just electrifying on the drums with so much energy, you gotta love watching him. Eric is the man in the back round unless he is singing back round vocals, that is. Always hiding in the shadows, Eric keeps the rhythm of the music. They put on a nostalgic yet modern rock show and they brought it hard!!
The band does VIP Meet & Greets even at small venues, but I was still able to talk with my pal Tracii and the rest of the guys after.
The set list is as follows:
Let Me Go to the Show
Back Home Again
Sleazy Come Easy Go
The Ballad of Jayne
Talk Dirty to Me
All My People
Nothin’ but a Good Time
