Another shade of performer

It’s not all that often you see someone walk away from the light of stardom … it can be pretty nice though. Here’s Brian Vander Ark performing Procol Harem’s Whiter Shade of Pale at a show last night at the Inside Out Gallery in Traverse City.

Brian played a great show accompanied by Randy Sly – keyboardist from bop (Harvey). I also have a video of him singing one of my favorite songs, I Don’t Want To Be A Bother (and a couple photos). Brian gave an entertaining account of being KISS’s warmup band for 30 shows while with Verve Pipe. At the end of the last show, he put in some fake teeth and sang We Are the Champions to the German crowd – here’s the link.
