ARNEL PINEDA / JOEL HOEKSTRA / BILLY SHEEHAN / VAN ROMAINE / OLLIE MARLAND / LENNY CASTRO - ABRACADABRA

Don't sleep on the recently released cover of the Steve Miller Band's 1982 classic, "Abracadabra"!  If you were a fan of the original, then this one will immediately transport you back in time and place where all that mattered was the music.  Rock and Roll legends Arnel Pineda (Journey), Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big), and Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake) pull out all the stops for what turned out to be an instant classic.  As one would expect, Pineda's vocal's are flawless, Sheehan's signature bass is chunky as ever, and Hoekstra's mastery of the axe is on full display throughout the song.  Add in drummer Van Romaine, Keyboardist Ollie Marland, and percussionist Lenny Castro and this Steve Miller classic is catapulted to a whole new level.  I know it's only one song, but a boy can dream of some type of supergroup forming as a result of what is clearly a winning combination of serious musical genius.  Give it a spin and lets us know what ya think!
