Win A Ticket For Y&T @ B.B. King Blues Club On 3/4/2016

Poster - Y and T at BB Kings - 2016

The Details: Y&T are one of the best Hard Rock bands in history if you ask me, and while I was more of a casual fan during their earlier years, I have come to enjoy a great amount of their repertoire and live shows ever since becoming a media scribe and photographer. I can honestly say that there has never been a show done by them that I didn’t feel pulled out all the stops and left the audience screaming for more. While the lineup has changed since the beginning the group is still commanded by the great Dave Meniketti who has those powerful pipes and plays that guitar like it’s nobody’s business. All of this makes me happy to announce that the band will once again be returning to the stage of the B.B. King Blues Club and thanks to venue some of the PiercingMetal readers are going to get to enjoy the show for free. Cool right? Read more below on how this works.

When and Where: Friday, March 4th at B.B. King Blues Club 7:30pm (237 West 42nd Street NYC)

To Participate: As you know, Y&T has about a dozen albums by now so I want to know what your top three albums in their catalog might be. I’ll ask you to tell me a few things about each of those that make them the top of your list. Now of course any show is bound to have some new people wanting to come in and if that means you then you have no such background. You’ll need to give me three proper reasons for selection. Make them solid to read more than just a plain old “because they rock man” because that is just too un-original and boring. If you’ve seen them do their thing together before then maybe let us know what we are all in store for here in NYC. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. This is for a single ticket only and no plus one requests will be honored. Sorry.

– Enter only enter once. The comments are moderated and will not appear immediately after submission.
– Number them for ease of knowing if you followed the instructions or not if I’ve asked for a list.
– Please enter your full real name in the comment form along with an email address that you can be reached at if you win. This is necessary for listing purposes. Please do NOT put this information in the comment itself out of privacy concerns.
– Only enter if you can and will attend the show should you win and it’s logistically possible for you to do so. Essentially if you live a couple of hundred miles away we don’t think you’re coming here for a show in NYC.
– Subscribe to the comments and check back to see the responses so you know if you won or not.
– Make sure you are entering a NEW comment and not replying to another contestant’s entry as that makes notifying you difficult should you be marked as a winner.

  1. 3 Favorite Y&T albums…1.Yesterday& Today I was helping with the opening of Tower records in NYC when i 1st heard Y& T !st thing i noticed was a Hard & Rockin Bluesy Guitarist with a voice like ive never heard before .But what got me the most was this drummer Leonard Haze who pounded the drums with such precision and finess that i havent heard since John Bonham so i bought that cd immediately. Favorite Song Beautiful Dreamer 2nd fave…Black Tiger…when this album came out i actually bought it for 1 song Baroom Boogie I knewby the title that this song as the title says would Boogie..Then i skipped to forever i just loved how the song starts out so sleek n smooth then slams you to the fuckin wall .then i started album from beginning from song 1. 3rd fave is Earthshaker…which tells my strange story. I was lonely and bored and HUNGRY FOR ROCK and searchin”for my DIRTY GIRL who would be YOUNG AND TOUGH cause i really needed that special someone to come and RESCUE ME Then Y&T album came out and i felt like they wrote this album for me. So thats my story sad but true I wanna see Y& T perform at BBKings with you

    1. That’s some great stuff Fred so congrats you have won a ticket to see the great Y&T at B.B. King Blues Club on Friday. Please refer to the section of the post marked “If You Win This Contest” for all the details on how you claim it at the show.

  2. Saw them back in the day at L’amour, original line-up. Great vocals by Dave, Len Haze is so Bonham sounding with his sound and touch. I have the first 2 albums on vinyl as well as others. Liked the first one, Yesterday and Today, heavy for its time. Earthshaker and Black Tiger both have great songs.
    I really like Open Fire, upbeat & heavy, Hurricaine is just a rockin’ song, Forever and I Believe In You are powerful anthems, with a lot of feeling in Daves’ vocals and emotional guitar playing. Just wanted to say I did not like the couple of pop albums they did, they should have never tried to be posers, they didn’t need to!

    1. This works for me Ken so congrats on winning a ticket to see the great Y&T at B.B. King Blues Club on Friday. I hate to say this but Leonard Haze has been out of the band for awhile now but the drums are in capable hands just the same with Vanderhule.

  3. I saw Y&T once in NYC two years ago. Dave Meniketti and the band left my jaw on the floor . Show was amazing but I did not really care for the venue. I have never been to BB Kings Blues Club. Have heard good things about the place and would love to attend.
