Band Of The Week

 
Ghosts of Sunset, featuring former (Dutch Henry) singer-songwriter John Merchant from Western Michigan, and one time Michigan resident and now residing in Florida, multi-instrumentalist and former (The Verve Pipe) drummer Todd Long, dealt with it by releasing an EP called “Headed West”.

“Headed West” found Merchant and Long joined by a cast of musicians with their roots in the 1980’s hard rock/hair metal scene especially in Los Angeles, California. The duo brought in well-known musicians that included Tim Mosher (Junkyard), Traci Guns (LA Guns) , Adam Hamilton (Tuff) , Johnny Monaco (Enuff Z’Nuff) , Stacey Blades (Ratt) and Bruno Ravel (Danger Danger) to name but a few.

Now, the duo are presenting a full-length album titled “No Saints in the City”. Following the formula laid down by “Headed West”, Merchant and Long once again invited musical input from a cast of influences that includes members of 1980s “hair-metal” staples like Bang Tango, Little Caesar, Lita Ford, and E’nuff Z’nuff, but widens its musical palette with guests from bands like Gene Loves Jezebel, the Cruzados, and The Great Affairs.
