When these four experienced musicians (nearly 100 years of combined playing time in area bands like Affliktion, Xavier, Passion, Kancelled, Destiny, Ariel, Blue Racer Rockhouse, Poetic Justice and fantasia) got together in October of 2009 something special happened. As the quartet discovered a shared interest in the music of superstar group Poison, the idea of a tribute band naturally came up. With Jimmie Barr (lead vocals), Bobby White (guitar, backing vocals), Rick Bietsch (drums) and Tim Copp (bass, backing vocals) entirely capable of giving you all the Poison you’d want and more 80s hits than you can shake a mullet at, Fallen Angel arose. The group promises, “a high energy stage show topped off with beads, silly string, Jell-o shots, merchandise, etc.” to create “the kind of crowd interaction and participation that is very rarely seen since 1989.” We’re talking a state-of-the-art sound system, laser light show, with costumes and charisma, doing a “full on 80s rock extravaganza” everywhere they go, including clubs in Springfield, Girard, Decatur, Canton, Havana, Fairbury, Joliet and more. Rock on!!
