REVIEW BY: Mike Roy
I always love seeing shows at the House of Blues -- they are one of the best venues. Friday December 6th was Great Whiteís turn to play there, or should I say Jack Russellís Great White. I didnít expect a sell-out crown or anything, but when we got there around 8:30 (show time called for 9) there were about 100 people there. It was kind of disappointing.
The opening band was a band from Florida from the Ď80s called Juliet. Most people probably donít remember them -- they had like one video on MTV. They sounded pretty good, but not too many people were into them.
Great White hit the stage at about 10:00 to a frenzy of a crowd (sarcasm mode on) of 200+ people and opened with the usual ďLady Red Light,Ē which is a great song. Jack Russell looked a little aged, but his voice sounded amazing as it always does. Mark Kendall was the only other original member there, and as you might remember him to wear a black hat with long blonde hair -- this time he was bald with sunglasses, I guess his hair line is a little behind the times, but nonetheless he sounded amazing. The other guitarist was Ty Longley, who was a young guy that played pretty damn good. I donít know the names of the other guys, and Jack didnít bother to introduce any of them except Mark Kendall.
In any event, the show went and sounded flawless with the exception of a small crowd, which I felt bad for the guys, but hey, what can you do. I would definitely recommend anyone to go see the show. Here is the set list although I donít think I have it in order:
Lady Red Light
House Of Broken Love
Save All Your Love
Face The Day
Once Bitten Twice Shy
All Over Now
On Your Knees
