About 4 or 5 years ago I caught Jack Russell and Mark Kendall with a bunch of kids playing under the name Great White opening for a Jaime St.James-led Warrant in Cincinnati. Most of you have tuned out by now, I get it, but for those sticking around for the ride, Great White was way better than I expected and I had forgotten how many songs of theirs I knew all the words to.
Since that time, most of the original members of Great White have returned and they’ve even released 2 new CDs, 2007’s Back to the Rhythm and 2009’s Rising.
The Other Paper did a good job at addressing the elephant in the room this week (band involved in one of the most horrific events in rock history playing at a club where one of the most horrific things ever happened to a musician) so I’m not going to rehash the whole thing.
Great White will play the Alrosa Villa tonight along with some local openers. Tickets are $20.
