Whitford/St. Holmes Reunite With New Promise

Whitford/St. Holmes Reunite With New PromiseBeing the opening act for the energetic electric guitars of the Whitesnake duo is not an easy task. But the team of Aerosmith's' Brad Whitford and Ted Nugent's Derek St. Holmes seem to fit the bill perfectly.

Whitford/St. Holmes Reunite With New PromiseHaving only thirty minutes to work with, the newly reformed five-piece Whitford/St. Holmes project provided a solid rock set to the masses at the newly, nicely remodeled Bomb Factory. As Brad Whitford himself said between songs "This is the nicest club I've ever played in."

Opening the set with the newly released single "Shapes" and performing four more original cuts from the new CD Reunion just released today, the quintet proved to me to be as solid as a band that could have been touring together for 35 years.

Derek St. Holmes looks to be in great shape vocally and physically, performing the unmistakable lead vox for "Hell is On Fire" "Gotta Keep On Movin'" and "Shake It," while splitting the lead guitars with Mr. Whitford on a few others.

The band finished their set with a medley of hits from other "projects" by sweeping through "Last Child," "Hey Baby," "Train Kept a Rollin," and "Stranglehold." And to show genuine after show appreciation, the two guitarists gladly signed copies of their new Reunion CD between sets at the merch booth. Nicely done.
