With this KILLER lineup of talent the almost 5 hour show breezed by and still could’ve continued. Brian makes every musician a standout and participates from beginning to end with perfection. Kudos must be given to the incredible people who do help make this an extraordinary event starting with Brian Tichy the hardest working musician out there as well as ONE HELL of a talent from the thunderous way he plays drums to his guitar playing always bringing it to the stage its contagious you can tell by the audience reaction. Joe Suttor who works tiredly on production and Noelle Kim on VIP/Media worked the red carpet, floor, backstage and VIP all night keeping things going. Standout of the evening without a doubt was 13 year old Logan “Robot”Gladden Killing on “The Rover” as if he’d been playing in the band for years!! The Moby Dicks playing as tight as ever Chas West Channeling Robert Plant like no other out there! Great weekend of music and tributes these musicians put so much hard work, time, and LOVE of the heroes they grew up listening to and trying to emulate on these nights they did just that.
