Wow! What a night of rock and roll!

Corbin, Kentucky’s own Ruthless Vendetta kicked the night off. Boy did they ever! They tore through songs like Honey Drippin, Bad Trip, M.A.P., Lost Dreams, Beautiful Reverie and finished up with Perpetuity. Ruthless Vendetta was the perfect fit to get this night started. They are made up of James Stephens on vocals, Doug Gregory and Allen Warfield on guitar, Robby Hash on bass and Jon Taylor on drums.

The Saints of Heartbreak, in my opinion one of the coolest band names around! This trio backs up that cool name with some badass music! Also hailing from Corbin, Kentucky, their blend of rock and alternative is something you need to hear! With their debut album set for release in August, you’ll have that opportunity!  Some of the tracks they performed were: Sexy Grip, Oh No, Internet 3 Way, Taxman, Macedonian Beat and finishing up the set with Spotless WonderThe Saints of Heartbreak are Zack Smith guitar and vocals, Nathan Sizemore bass and vocals and Joshua Howard on drums.

Warrant! I should just stop there, the band name is enough! But I won’t. These guys have been entertaining crowds for a long time.  On this night it was Hazard, Kentucky’s turn to be entertained and entertained Hazard was! From the first notes of Down Boys to the ending notes of Cherry Pie Joey Allen, Jerry Dixon, Robert Mason, Steven Sweet and Erik Turner lead the crowd at The Forum on a trip thru Warrant’s history, past and present! Classic tracks like Big Talk, DRFSR and Heaven were mixed in with new tracks like Louder Harder Faster, New Rebellion and I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink. My personal favorite of the night was and is one of my all-time favorite Warrant songs Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Still touring and making quality new music Warrant is a must see in my opinion!

As usual, Greg Napier and his staff brought together a super night of music, from the Down Boys to two super talented bands from Corbin, KY this was a great night to be in Hazard!
