For me the 1980’s were like this. School, sports, and MTV. Maybe not in that order. Poison was one of those bands I immediately connected with. Their songs and videos were contagious. All I wanted to do was be a part of it. Flash forward 35 yrs and these original four members are still bringing the party to you. On June 23rd and 24th. I got to have the weekend I always wanted when I was a teenager. With hits like “talk dirty to me”, and “nothing but a good time”. You know what kind of night or nights you are in for. Legendary front man Bret Michaels still is killing it. His voice and energy has not let down. With the help of guitarist extraordinaire C.C. Deville. Showing off just like he did in those iconic videos. You can help not to have a blast. Rikki Rockett, and Bobby Dall round out the foursome. Rockett’s drum sticks are in the air more than they are on the drums. Showing off is what they do, and they are the best at it. These photos sum up not just two magical nights with family, friends. It sums up what music is all about. Making a connection with a band and their music. Bringing you back to awesome memories, while still making new ones. I’m still a kid watching my band, and loving it!
