Cheap Thrill - Hair Nation


I attended the Cheap Thrill show last friday with two of my good friends. Thank you to Rob for getting me in to take pictures of the band. Also, Special thanks to Jim Crean for giving KISS THIS! a shout out during his rockin' set with Hair Nation. My friends and I enjoyed Hair Nation and the kick ass Cheap Thrill show, even though there was a lil' chill in the air. Thank You Braun's and All Music & All Bands!!

 CHEAP THRILL, ( Brandon Gibbs - Lead Vocals Guitars, Jeff LaBar - Guitars, Eric Brittingham - Bass and Cheney Brannon -Drums), played this past Friday at Braun's Concert Cove ( located in Akron, NY ). The band is made up of members of CINDERELLA's, Jeff LaBar, Eric Britingham and COLLECTIVE SOUL 's Cheney Brannon along with Solo Artist, Brandon Gibbs. With members of CINDERELLA & COLLECTIVE SOUL, they had a great list of songs to pick from and they chose the BEST to perform.

The band got it going with CINDERELLA's " Save Me" and then went into COLLECTIVE SOUL's " Heavy". Brandon Gibbs played a song "This Town " of his solo CD " Into The Ocean". The audience got to hear a new CHEAP THRILL song " Heavy Man". They got the crowd going with " Heartbreak Station'- CINDERELLA and great cover of Stealers Wheel's "Stuck In The Middle". The band was having a fun time, as well as the crowd. "Long Cold Winter's" - "Gypsy Road" was next and a cover of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean". Jeff LaBar played an amazing solo and then a little HEART's "Crazy On You". Playing CINDERELLA's biggest hit song " Nobody's Fool" got the fans loving it and singing along. The band did an excellent version of REO Speedwagon's "Roll With The Changes". Closing out the stellar night was "Imagine" by the late, great John Lennon. The band has been on tour for 9 months and shows no sign of slowing down.
Thanks to CHEAP THRILL and their management team, and Braun's Concert Cove for the opportunity to cover the show.
