We are encouraged to keep on listening each time we hear a new and refreshing band. PAPER AIRPLANES ...We are encouraged to keep on listening each time we hear a new and refreshing band. PAPER AIRPLANES OF FIRE provided our night of entertainment with both their covers and their originals that sounded like covers! This band consists of three band members headed by Keith Hedemark lead guitar with a smooth voice and a laid back style. Keith had backup on vocals from drummer Mike Rossi whose punk rock look just added to the whole experience. The third member of the trio is bass player Trevor Lutz again no gimmics or wild antics just good old fashioned great bass playing and contributing vocals. Paper Airplanes of Fire played a variety of tunes from the 80's and 90's covering Puddle of Mudd, Billy Idol, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more. They showed us that they could hang with the best by doing a superb job on Cream's "Sunshine of Your Love". The highlight of the night was an outstanding, soul exposing original ballad written and sung by front man Keith. Paper Airplanes of Fire is a very likeable professional band who definitely lived up to the hype by allowing their music to speak for itself. They demonstrated that gen X can rock even the baby boomers, thanks guys it was a treat! ROCK ON!!!
