“The lead singer was a woman dressed up as the Milla Jovovich character from The Fifth Element movie. She had a really powerful voice, and played an electric violin to boot. The rhythm section was solid as hell, and the guitar player had all sorts of tasty riffs. This band loves them some 70’s rock.

They rocked Led Zeppelin’s song The Rover pretty much as well as Zeppelin did. Then they did Pat Benatar’s song Hell is For Children. I forgot how much I loved this song. They blew me away by having the singer play the guitar solo on her electric violin. All of them were having a great time on stage.”
