Angel and The Hard Way at The Whisky – Live Review

Angel and The Hard Way, The Whisky, October 4th, 2019

Angel was back with a vengeance at the world famous Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip – this time with both original members Punky Meadows and Frank DiMino – and what a grand and powerhouse night this was! Celebrating the unveiling of their just released Rising magnum opus – their first album of new music since 1979 – Angel presented a set of tunes culled from a vast and glorious career. From the opening refrains of On The Rocks, Mirrors and beyond, Angel was absolutely on fire, unleashing a rock and roll performance of a lifetime. Frank DiMino remains a powerful front man, whose passionate voice and rockstar stage presence is absolutely inspirational. And then there’s the thrilling guitar work of Punky Meadows, weaving his sheer magic and intrigue throughout the proceedings.

Supplying direct support to the Angel extravaganza was L.A.’s own The Hard Way, and what a stunning live show this band presents. The Hard Way has opened for many a famous rock and roll act, and are well known for their blistering live shows and wickedly infectious songs. Featuring the dynamic lead vocals of Eric Jeffreys as well as the return of Tim Luce from the almighty Alcatrazz on thunderous bass, The Hard Way absolutely captivated the early arrivals. Mention must also be made about the vibrantly gorgeous Hard Way dancers – April Showers and Corina Cline – who added sex and sass appeal to The Hard Way rock and roll experience. Songs such as Diabolical Bitch, That Ain’t Love and I Can’t Go Home are Sunset Strip anthems showing why The Hard Way are local legends of our Hollywood music scene. Be sure to catch The Hard Way opening for Last In Line at The Whisky on March 27, 2020!
