Whitesnake's Joel Hoekstra - Northfield Hard Rocksino

June 11th marked the return of Whitesnake to Northfield Hard Rocksino. In one of the record breaking attendances at the venue the fans were delivered knock out punches song after song. It was indeed “The Greatest Hits Tour.”  From the opening note the crowd was engaged. It was really nice to see people in the farthest away seats

A few of the key things from the show, David Coverdale was on fire. His vocals are still holding up and of course is dominating on stage, pulling the audience into him and the band. Michael Devin did a great bass solo and really made some new fans from his performance. Mad axemen Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra tore the ceiling down with their solos. The monster behind the kit, Tommy Aldridge left the fans jaws dropped to the floor with his glorifying drum solo. Extremely memorable.

You expect greatness at a Whitesnake show and this one was no exception. Everyone left the show excited and the performance was the best.

Opening the show was Whitford / St. Holmes. Aerosmith’s guitarist and Ted Nugent’s bad-men are out and performing their hard rockin’ bluesy tunes and building up their fan-base once again.  It was nice to see these guys really putting it out there to the ‘Snake fans. A few little classic cuts from the Aerosmith catalog and the Nuge’s as well spiced up the show and drew the crowd in to them. It was evident that it worked by the standing ovation they received at the end of their performance.

Overall: If you love Whitesnake, get your butt to a show and support these cats. They will bring the roof down and you will not regret it.

Thanks for taking a few seconds to read this. I have been with MTRS since its inception. Love doing the live broadcasts and interviewing my hero's and other very interesting people over the decade of this. MTR is my therapy. Have always looked at this site and station as being part of the solution for the artists. We have NEVER pushed our own agenda, it has always been in the name of the bands, the music and the direction in which we have an influence in helping. We are part of the solution. Its simple! We are here to help bands and entertainers succeed. We go way far beyond of what is expected of a station/PR piece.
