Steven Adler, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame drummer, formerly of Guns N Roses, brought his current band to Jergle's last night for some classic G-N-R tunes.

Although Axl, Slash and Duff are still on their never ending Not In This Lifetime Tour without their original drummer, Adler proved time and again that he can still pound the skins with the best of them and he should be on tour with his former bandmates.

Adler has surrounded himself with top-notch musicians that include Michael Thomas on lead guitar, Alistair James on rhythm guitar, Ariel Kamin on vocals and Tanya O'Callaghan on bass.  

Kicking off the show with "Nightrain" and "Mr. Brownstone" the band let the audience know that they weren't messing around.  

The band played mostly Appetite For Destruction era songs, they did however play two original tunes "The One That You Hated" and "Good To Be Bad" which fit nicely into the set. 

In the middle of the show, Ariel Kamin got to show off his vocal range as he sang and acapella version of "Patience."

"You Could Be Mine," "Sweet Child O Mine" and my personal favorite, "Rocket Queen" closed out the main set.

Adler then thanked the crowd for coming out.  I believe this was his first show in over a year and a half.

The band then hit the familiar notes of "Welcome to the Jungle" as Kamin screamed "Do you know where you are?!" as the crowd on the floor started to jump up and down.

The 75 minute set came to a close with the classic "Paradise City."

Spinning Jenny, a band consisting of three sisters, opened the show with a great set of original tunes as well as some nice covers.  The lead guitarist and drummer both took turns singing lead while the bassist also took over on the keys on songs like Heart's "Alone" and Motley Crue's "Home Sweet Home."  This young band has a lot of potential and is worth checking out.
