It was compiled with mostly originals but also threw in a cover of Heart’s “Barracuda.” You could tell they were ready to rock by their movements, their energy and how they rocked their instruments. For an up and coming band there is definitely more to see. If you have a chance you need to check them out. They put on a performance you don’t want to miss.
After a short break, legendary guitarist Slash, appeared on stage in silhouette form, He brought with him on stage his band Myles Kennedy And The Conspirators. They had a monster set list consisting of twenty one songs that were nothing short of amazing. It was filled with phenomenal guitar solos from Slash and amazing vocals from Myles Kennedy.

When it came time to introduce Slash he said “Ladies and Gentlemen, lets raise the roof on this place for Slash!! (explicit language) The crowd gave Miles and the rest of the band a standing ovation before walking off the stage for a short break. Within a few moments of leaving the stage, the sound of Slash’s guitar was heard yet again for another solo.
