Kip Winger and Mike Tramp (voice of White Lion) put on an acoustic show Colorado won’t soon forget.
The night was kicked off by the acoustic metal tribute trio Achilles. Their front man, Aquiles Quiroga, moved up here from Ecuador in 2007 and brings a feel of the Latin and salsa music to his hair band covers.
Female fronted Romantic Rebel hit the stage next and really brought the energy to the room with their hard hitting melodic rock. KT Paige has the perfect gritty voice to compliment the gorgeous exterior that won her Revolver Magazines Hottest Chick in Hard Rock and Metal in their January of 2015 issue.
The stage was emptied and Mike Tramp came walking out with just his acoustic guitar. Although Mike has put out eight solo studio albums since his days as the White Lion front man, he still played a good mix of of songs off those and brilliant acoustic versions of the 80’s White Lion classics that everyone loves.
Kip Winger was very entertaining, although he didn’t play as many songs as many songs as he was planning because he talked as much as he sang. He told story after story and even tried calling all his old band mates on speaker phone from the stage. He did manage to get Paul Taylor, Wingers piano player, on the phone and chatted over the mic with the audience for a bit. Kip even brought a lady from the audience and his brother Nate up on stage to join him in two different songs.
Last, but certainly not least was Michael Morrow playing his very southern sounding bluesy rock. This extremely talented trio would make you think there there were two of each of them on stage if you were just listening and his female bass player, Juliet March, is one of the most talented bass players I’ve ever seen.
