THE BABYS, DILANA AND The LEGENDS OF ROCK ALL STAR BAND THE CANYON CLUB 7/18/2013

This was a benefit show for the Santa Clarita Food Pantry and Shelter for Homeless Children to help out 6000 families.   The raffled off some guitars and hopefully raised a lot of money.

It’s always good to rock out for a good cause and this was a GREAT triple bill.

The Babys

After 32 years, The Babys are back.  Most people were wondering how they would sound without John Waite.

John Bisaha both looked and sounded like John Waite and new guitarist JP Cervoni rips on the guitar.

Founding members Wally Stocker and Tony Brock still rock after all these years.

The entire band sounded great and the backing vocals were fantastic.

They played some old and new tunes and ended with “Back on My Feet Again” and  “Head First”.

DILANA ROBICHAUX – of Rockstar:Supernova

Dilana’s performance was definitely one of the highlights of the evening.  She was accompanied by another guitarist and her baby on the way.

She started her set with “Roxanne” by The Police and finished with “Zombie” from The Cranberries and rocked out to many songs in between.    Great performance.  Very cool.

The LEGENDS OF ROCK ALL STAR BAND

With a Special Tribute to
SPENCER DAVIS -Founder/Guitarist of the SPENCER DAVIS GROUP

This was a killer band that played way too short of a set.    Seeing Tim Bogert on bass and Brian Auger on keyboards was awesome.   They were celebrating Spencer Davis’ birthday.   And it was Brian Auger’s birthday, too.   He claimed to be 183 years old.  That was funny.   In addition to singing “Happy Birthday”, they also played “Gimme Some Lovin’”, I Wanna Take You Higher” and “Goin’ Down” (three song titles with improper English – ha ha).   Chas West and Brent Woods of the Moby Dicks tore through “Rock and Roll” and “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin at the end of the set. Having a horn section for those tunes rocked.    They’ll be doing a full house show at the Viper Room on Saturday.   The LEGENDS of ROCK ALL STAR BAND band needs to come back and do a full-length performance at The Canyon.
