Full on SHRED……. POWER vocals…..HIGH ENERGY Bass….. and an absolute HAMMER on the skins… that’s how the night started at Count’s Vamp’d in Las Vegas with Electric Messiah on Saturday the 17th, 2014. We first introduced you to Electric Messiah Featuring David Reed Watson Lead Vocals, Jason Constantine Lead Guitar, JP Michaels on Bass, and Michael Maysonet on Drums in February for their debut at the House of Blues. They delivered a KILLER set of all original music last night that had the crowd completely absorbed in the music. Personal favorites were “ALIVE” and the “THE VOID” the Bass line in “THE VOID” from JP Michaels is completely mesmerizing!
So how do you top that….. you step back in time to the day’s of good old-fashioned hair metal and glam and you “LET IT RAWK!”
The 80’s metal ALLSTARS in “LET IT RAWK” include front man “Jaime St. James” Black ‘N’ Blue and Ex- Warrant vocalist, creator and producer “Stacey Blades” from LA Guns, Oz Fox “Stryper”, “Scot Coogan” Brides of Destruction and Ace Frehley and “Sean McNabb” Dokken transported us right back in time. I’m certain that everyone in the house had the same thoughts as I did…. I could picture the cassette tape and just how much wear and tear it had seen in its day. The production and arrangement by “LET IT RAWK” delivers an incredible show with every member interchanging on vocals and each member given their moments to do what they do best and that’s RAWK!! Stand out for me with “LET IT RAWK” was Scot Coogan on drums, an absolute BEAST!! “LET IT RAWK” rocked our world and reminded us exactly why we love this music so much! “LET IT RAWK” YOU “RAWK”
It’s always good to see the enormous amount of support that the local music scene shares for one another. Other local rockers came out to share some love for both “ELECTRIC MESSIAH” and “LET IT RAWK” including “Gee Silver” from Outta The Black, “Stoney Curtis” The Stoney Curtis Band and Count’s 77, “Barry Barnes”, Count’s 77, “Paulie Walnuts” Smashing Alice and many many more!
“Las Vegas is the new rock n roll capital of the World” said Jaime St. James.
A very special shout out to Traci Smith from Rockin’ Las Vegas for arranging to have representatives in the house from the USO for the signing of the “Every Moment Counts Flag”. “The Every Moment Counts” campaign is a celebration of gratitude for our men and women in uniform. The USO hopes to create the World’s largest Thank You and be entered in to the Guinness Book of World Records.
