Bad Motor Scooter, yeah … I’m talking about another super group of well oiled musicians that knows how to churn into high gear.

Bad Motor Scooter was created out of pure love for great music, & delivering Classic Rock & Roll hits with passion & power. Band members Dan McNay (Tesla, Ronnie Montrose Band), Tal Morris (CCR, Ronnie Montrose Band), Lez Warner (The Cult, Ronnie Montrose Band) & Randy Scoles (Ronnie Montrose Band) make up this band.

The venue: Swabbies, a cool eclectic space grungy with attitude and a stage big enough to bring on a major act. This night was special, Mitch Perry (Aerosmith, Cher, Quiet Riot and Edgar Winter) who is no stranger to delivering ample coolness to the fans just happened to be performing with them. The show kicked off strong with a Bad Company anchor “Rock Steady” and continued to bring a blast from the past with hits from Montrose, The Cult, Edgar Winter and even Led Zeppelin, and create a frenzy from the sold out crowd.

In fact, so packed I heard that they turned down 250 people from entering. Guitar riffs and crunchy leads often wailing with powerful rhythm pretty much sums it all up. If there was one show that could deliver edginess with a solid bassline and spot on drums …

Kind of like Easy Rider meets Gone in 60 Seconds, it would be this one. With the fans up on their feet the entire time singing along with familiar chorus, any venue would be crazy to not book them.

Chalk this one up in the books my friends, you could only wish they’ll be performing in a theater near you !!
