A special edition and holiday celebration of Soundcheck Live! at Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood was held to benefit Toys for Tots and started off with high energy as the fans rallied up in line to get raffle tickets to win one-of-a-kind signed merch, limited edition gear from elite members in the music industry such as Gene Simmons and Gilby Clarke. The night started strong with a lineup of all-star talent and killer tunes with Guest Curators Barry Pointer & Ace von Johnson with the debut of Pointer’s new original project, “The Anatomy.” During their performance, special guest Ricky “Hollywood” Gordon provided an amazing display on the tambourine that will surely go down as a musical highlight of 2016.
The night continued with a presentation from 3 Marines who took the time to participate to the resident band’s rousing renditions of hit songs and Todd Morse of The Anatomy ending the night on stage.
