The March Edition of SoundCheck Live doubled the fun by bringing you twice as many songs as a normal evening in the form of musical MashUps!

For those not aware, a MashUp is a combination of one songs music accompanied by another songs lyrics.

(Steve Ferlazzo Explaining what a MashUp is…)

Classics songs and artists were combined and twisted into a fusion of symphonic synergy! Bryan Adams combined with Metallica, RATT melded with Marvin Gaye, Wham whipped and blended with Billy Idol. It’s the movie “Inception” at an audio level.

Most of these musical meshes existed only online, youtube or someone’s blog, and tonight saw the first time that almost all of them have been performed live.
