Re: Excellent Cover Bands

Here are The Kildares doing a killer version of "Whiskey in the Jar". I love the haunting viola intro, with some flanger/reverb/delay tastefully applied:

Re: Excellent Cover Bands

Meet renowned cellist Cremaine Booker. His rendition of the theme "Time" from the movie "Inception" is one of the most soulful things I've ever heard ... here comes the tears again. Stunningly lovely!

Re: Excellent Cover Bands

The "Band Geeks" have just surpassed their impressive array of quality covers, with this 18-minute version of Yes's magnum opus "Close to the Edge". I don't think a basement band has ever done a cover as ambitious / amazing as this one. If you're a Yes fan, get ready for the goosebumps!

Here's a brilliant cover of Deep Purple's "Lazy", featuring Jimmy Barnes (vocals), Arlan Schierbaum (keyboard), and Joe Bonamassa (guitar). This is freakin' awesome ... these guys really kicked this one into high gear:

Re: Excellent Cover Bands

Our new "Blues Friday" feature by Classical Guitar featured an amazing cover of The Who's "Love Reign O'er Me". Whenever I think of the song, this terrific cover by Heart comes to mind ... what a voice Anne Wilson has!
