The Axe Attack Is Back
The band recently performed several special engagements and the reaction has been none less than fervid! When Axe this Summer opened for Queensryche at Sunken Garden Amphitheater in San Antonio to an attendance of over 5,000, and reportedly the audience literally went wild. Six weeks later, Axe was back in San Antonio headling at Hemisfair Park to a capacity crowd. And again, the band showed its magic and held the audience in their hands.
Andy Laudano of Harder Beat Magazine (Dallas/Ft. Worth) said the following of Axe’s performance at The Rockyard on August 15, 2007, “Easily one of the best hard rock acts of the early '80s, Axe had the ability to combine great songwriting with strong melodies, powerful guitars and tasteful keyboards. Recently, Bob Harris (vocals/keyboards) and Brad Banhagel (guitar/vocals) put the band back together with the blessing of founder Bobby Barth. The current line-up also includes Chris Lewis (drums), Dave Landis (guitar), Alex Salinas (keyboards) and newest member, Tommy Luna (bass). Anyone who wasn't there for Axe's recent show in Ft. Worth, really missed out. This band sounds fantastic! Highlights included “Battles”, “Forever”, “Where There's Smoke There's Fire”, “Sting Of The Rain” and the classic “Rock and Roll Party In The Streets”.
