There is nothing like seeing one of your favorite guitarists, on a small stage in the middle of the street, in downtown Austin, Texas with 40 of your closest, unknown friends that can make you feel any better!
The 2016 Austin Bat Fest featured the “Hottest Band on Earth’s” renowned guitarist , Mr. Ace Frehley with his solo project this year, and they really WERE on fire! Ace playing his classic songs such as Shock Me, Back in The New York Groove , Love Gun, Parasite Lady and other classics was just the beginning. His band was absolutely amazing as well!!
Previously the bassist for THE CULT, Mr. Chris Wyse delivered a bass solo that was absolutely flawless! He also sang a LED ZEPPELIN classic that would have made Robert Plant cry! Another highlight of the evening was when the drummer Scot Coogan also belted out a LED ZEPPELIN favorite, “Bring it on Home”! The crowd loved it! These guys really know how to have fun!
Prior to the show, there had been a threat of down-pouring rain, therefore not as many people showed up as were expected. The crowd and the band both seemed to be fine with that, as it made for a more personal experience. Great Job, Space Ace!
