BAD COMPANY TRIBUTE BAND

Harpers 11/25/2006

Northridge, CA -- 'Burnin sky' tribute to Paul Rodgers and Bad Company kicked off their first live performance at Harpers Bar & Grill in Northridge CA Saturday November 25 2006. The show was a total success, anyone and everyone who was anybody was there, including many members of local bands, promoters, close friends, family, and supporters. Burnin Sky has proven they're as hot as their name with this teaser taste of what is yet to come for future shows.

Special thanks to all our friends, fans, and everyone who came out to see us perform on this historic event. For those of you who missed it... shame on you! Just kidding; lucky you we recorded the show, so we dedicate this video stream to all those who tried but couldn't make it out to see the show. We know you'll make it next time.
