Blaze of Glory is the seventh band of Season 2 to perform their live set from the Roxy.
The band hails from Dallas, Texas and is recognized as the top Bon Jovi tribute band.
Following the introduction by Katie Daryl (who just presented a tribute band award in Las Vegas at the Vegas Rocks Magazine award show the night before), the band put crowd in a great mood as they played Bon Jovi songs from various albums throughout the expansive Bon Jovi catalog.
I was just starting high school when that album came out and just thinking about it brings back some really great memories. There were quite a few people in the crowd that took a trip down memory lane.
The musicians in the band were excellent. Everyone played their part very well.
They covered some of the more recent material and of course they played their namesake tune “Blaze of Glory”, which is actually a Jon Bon Jovi solo tune from 1990. It was featured in the movie Young Guns II.

For their encore, Blaze of Glory came out and played 4 more huge hits (“Livin’ On A Prayer”, “I’ll Be There For You”, “Wanted Dead Or Alive” and “Bad Medicine”) before going off air with “Keep The Faith”. It was a great way to close out the show and everyone there had a smile on their faces.
There were people in the crowd from Texas and New Jersey for the show. There was even a group of people from Sweden that attended the show. They all loved it, as did everyone in attendance.
