Night Prowler

This AC/DC cover band is really great! They do an all- Bon Scott set. For the uninitiated, Bon Scott was the band's first singer before he passed away from alcohol related asphyxiation. Bon's last album was the ironically named "Highway to Hell". His replacement Brian Johnson joined the band for their triumphant comeback album "Back in Black". I saw Night Prowler play last year at 16 Taps and the crowd was electrified! Come out for this free show and get ready to shake your foundations!
