Band Name: Appetite For Deception - A Tribute to Guns N' Roses: Remember when rock and roll was “dangerous” and the guys had better hair, and wore more makeup than your...sister? From out of the back alleys of Los Angeles rose a band that lit up brighter than the sun for what seems like a very short time. There will never be another Guns N' Roses, but we do have Appetite For Deception to help us remember those times, hard rockin' hits, and insightful lyrics. Unlike many cover bands that reproduce music and give it their own twist, Appetite prides itself on playing every track true to form. You will forget that you aren't in 1989 when you see the wardrobe, the instruments, and all of the moves made famous by W. Axl Rose and Slash…Their note for note perfection and snake-like moves will take you back! Fans are blown away by the attention to detail and variety of material this band delivers. The band strives for authenticity in all aspects of the their live performance. The gear, the clothes, the precision of the songs…everything is in place to take the listener and viewer back to the heyday of Guns N' Roses.
