SOUNDCHECK LIVE – MAY EDITION

NUNO BETTENCOURT. GARY CHERONE. RICHIE KOTZEN. 

With Unannounced Very Special Guest: R&R HoF’s NANCY WILSON & Liv Warfield!

A Special Saturday edition of SoundCheck Live brought out some Incredible talent and a few surprises to Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood, CA.

Nuno Bettencourt returned to the SoundCheck Live stage and, as he often does, he brought some of his “friends” with him. His friends aren’t always readily available because they’re touring the world in bands like Extreme, The Winery Dogs and in a little band called HEART!

The place was JAM packed with lines forming to get in around 2pm.  The night didn’t disappoint.  Opening, Local Showcase Band, Evol Walks, kicked off the event which led to 3 Stellar Acts of incredible musicians and songs.

The Surprise of the evening came early in Nuno’s set when he let the crowd know he ran into someone just recently and had a conversation with them letting that person know that he was guest hosting SoundCheck Live and offered them an invite to come Jam…  Nuno wasn’t sure that the acceptance was a true one, but low and behold… Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Nancy Wilson, with the incredible Liv Warfield in tow, did show up and helped stir the crowd up into a frenzy of excitement and energy.

Normally a night that also featured guitar (and vocal) God,  Richie Kotzen along with Nuno’s “Extreme” bandmates, Gary Cherone and Kevin Figueiredo, would be legendary in it’s own right, but tonight turned out to have just a little more Heart.

You never know who’s going to show up at SoundCheck Live…
