When I was first seeing the fliers for Livewire, I was concerened. How could a female lead handle the ranges of Briam Johnson or Bon Scott? Well, she does it well. The goal after all is to give the fans a great night of fun and music. It is not to perfectly mimic the vocal performances of AC/DC. I found myself enjoying the music and vocals very much.

Deborah is a fun person to talk to. After the show we wer talking in the parking lot and I was telling her that she has the range to do a great Janic Joplin. (We have to work on the band to pick that music up for the sets where they are not doing AC/DC/). So we stood in dark by there van singing Mercedes Benz, until she told me to do the singing, since she had spent the last two hours on stage… Well I don’t sing as well as she does. In fact at that moment, all the years of singing it with my mother, and on my own, the verses vanished form my mind.

I have also enjoyed hanging out with Bassist Terry Ryan, he is laid back and very easy going. I still have to talk to the other band memebers more, but I will be seeing them when they return to the Back Ally.

If you have the opportunity and like AC/DC, I suggest that you drop a few bucks at the door, grab a drink and hold on for a wonderful ride.

  1. You really NEED to take traditional instrument training. This is not something you can show yourself. An instrument instructor will trainer you on the optimal way to support the instrument and use your fingertips and hands properly, and also how to read traditional instrument songs.
