The rainy (see downpours) weather did not stop the fans from squeezing in to Sharpshooters in Amsterdam on Saturday night! The venue cleared away tables, knowing what a draw this band has.
Tommy V Live is one of the best local bands playing hard driving classic 80’s hard rock/metal songs.
The very energetic lead singer, Tommy Verrigni, hits hard with very strong vocals of Ozzy, Scorpions, Whitesnake, Iron Maiden, etc… and he does Dio better than DIO!
Alongside Tommy, is a fantastic shredder Ed Knight. His riffs on Still of the Night will stop you in your tracks.
John Dodge is the well-accomplished bass player who provides the low-end sound crucial to making the music “heavy.”
The heartbeat of the band is Eric Elmore, on drums. His dedication to his craft is obvious, as he drives the beats one after another putting his soul into every beat.
Together, they are simply magic. The sound engineer Ryan Nilsen is in a class of his own, balancing all this talent and blending to make a perfect mix, while Randy Decker proves there are no better lighting guys in the area, constantly making each show more and more magical.
