Concert Review Houston Scout Bar on March 3rd, 2019

by: Carox Rox
This Sunday night show began with Houston locals Karim K playing an early set, followed by the very talented Dead Girls Academy (signed with Victory Records) who hail from Los Angeles, CA. Blues/rock Jared James Nichols with band members, Gregg Cash, Dennis Holm, originally from hometown East Troy, Wisconsin, as usual, blew everyone away with talent. This was an amazing night of shredding and showmanship and John 5 and The Creatures were surrounded by many devoted fans, some in face paint like their famous and beloved front man. This was a heck of a show with a great deal of talent on one stage for a Sunday night in Houston.
Headliner John 5 and The Creatures comprise of world-renowned guitarist JOHN 5, bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix. JOHN 5 has worked with a varied range of artists, performing as guitarist for some of the biggest headlining rock bands in the world such as Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, as well as playing session with Paul Stanley, Rod Stewart, Lynyrd Skynyrd and more. Slash has called JOHN 5, "one of the most mind-blowing guitarists around" and Rob Zombie has dubbed him "a fucking shredder". JOHN 5 has released seven solo albums to date, as well as a remix album, and has written music for the likes of Avril Lavigne, Garbage, Ricky Martin and others.
