Muscle Madness, Osprey, FL and Janus Landing, St. Petersburgh, FL
I’d like to let everyone know that the shows I saw in Sarasota & St Petersburg Florida on the July 4th weekend were a couple of the best shows I’d seen from the boys – besides when they had more of the original members.
We drove over to the West coast of FL from the East coast. I met 2 Sharknotes members, and a few great friends over there.
Saturday night the concert took place in Sarasota with a great opening band, Mad Margritt out of Atlanta, GA.. If you get a chance to see them, make the effort. Sunday night the opening band was Juliett. I’d seen them many times in the Daytona area, they’re pretty good. Great White took the stage after each and rocked the house! It was a sweltering weekend, to say the least! The guys and the fans were absolutely drenched by show’s end. Kendall had sweat dripping from him to his guitar to the floor! It was crazy HOT! So were they. I really loved the surprise of them playing Wasted Rock Ranger – thanx, again guys !!
The new members didn’t miss a beat either, Scott, Tyler, & Derrick know their stuff when it comes to these songs. I’ve had people tell me they wouldn’t see them ‘cause it’s not the original members…..well, let me tell you, nothing has changed. They are all great performers. Always have been and always will be. Make sure to catch the tour near you!
After each show, my group and I had a chance to talk with the guys. Though the fire is still a sore subject, they spoke about it passionately. I saw a tear in Mark’s eye as he spoke of Ty and the bond they had created in the short time they shared the stage. Jack also spoke of catching Hell, still, for what happened. We told him that WE, the fans, do also. We told him, that upon hearing that we were heading to a Great White show, people would tell us to make sure it was an outside venue! We’d just “flip them off” and walk away. Jack said he greatly appreciates our support and we told him he has it ALL the way!
I have sent some pics of the show and if anyone would like to see the whole album from the shows…..just email me
