Kevin and I went to see Brets Michaels at the Lava Cantina in The Colony, yesterday. We had tickets for the balcony, and just wanted to enjoy a concert at this beautiful evening. The food was great. Kevin had the BLT, and I had Smoked Chicken Quesadilla. The service was great, too. The waiter was friendly. The food was hot, the drinks were cold. 🙂
After the opening band played some great rock’n’roll music for an hour, Bret came out and rocked the place. He has a great line-up of band members as well: Pete Evick (guitarist) works with Bret several years, and he also could be seen in the VH1 show “Rock of Love” back in 2009; Eric Brittingham also plays the bass guitar in the band Cinderella; Rob Jozwiak (keyboards); and Mike Bailey (drums), who’s also President and Artist Relations Director for Potomac Records in Washington, D.C.
What had the evening been without good ol’ Poison songs like “Look What The Cat Dragged In”, “Nothing But A Good Time”, “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”, “Unskinny Bop”, “Something To Believe In” … etc? And the band jammed “Sweet Home Alabama” from Lynyrd Skynyrd and “Rock And Roll All Nite” from Kiss. The whole place was catapulted back into the late 80s/early 90s, again.
Overall it was a great party last night. The only thing, I’d change for the next event at Lava Cantina: purchase front seats to get a better look at the stage. 😉 But it was great, since we went to this venue for the first time. Kevin and I still could see everything on the big screen, while we sipped on our beer.
