A Night at Sammy's in Roseville "Video of the Day" review by Alex Cosper on October 30, 2012

October 27, 2012 was somewhat of a Halloween party at Sammy Hagar's new club in Roseville, Sammy's Rockin' Island Bar and Grill. Several people showed up in costumes to see the Frank Hannon Band play. I showed as myself after being invited by sound engineer Eric Child, who I recently interviewed on SacTV. The night kicked off with the San Francisco Giants winning their third game of the World Series. I met Frank Hannon for the first time while I was talking with Pat Martin, KRXQ 98 Rock's midday personality who was celebrating his birthday. Pat actually got up on stage during the set and sang "Wild Thing" with the band. Pat has his own cover band, Animal House. He said they didn't even rehearse the tune, but it came off as pretty amazing. He dedicated the song to his wife, Monica Lowe, who I worked with at 100.5 The Zone years ago after I had left KWOD. I also ran into Todd Frank, who has worked for several stations in the area, including a classic rock station in Davis in the early 90s. I also ran into Marshall Phillips, who I also worked with at the Zone. It was a fun night of running into fun people.

Frank Hannon is a founding member guitarist for Tesla, but has ventured out on his own with an album called Six String Soldiers. He played songs from the album all night, mixed with cover classics and a few Tesla songs including "Signs" when singer Jeff Keith made a surprise appearance. Hannon was helped on the album from Dickey Betts of the Allman Brothers and Rick Derringer, who he said is one of his all time favorite guitarists. Hannon created a natural excitement with his bandmates, built on fun, high energy blues-based rock music. He also has a strong bond with the audience and makes the whole crowd feel invited to the party. Hannon told the crowd that "2012 was a great year" in which the album and touring have kept him busy. He mentioned that one of his favorite songs on the album is "Love, Life and Beauty," a very moving ballad. The show closed with the Joe Walsh classic "Life's Been Good." He will be performing again in the area at Halftime Bar and Grill in Rocklin on New Year's Eve.
