The Rockpile West, bar and live music venue, hosts a Heavy Metal Jam night on the last Thursday of every month. In late December 2018, 12 year old Sebastian Burnside showed up at the jam night with his parents. He came on stage with his electric guitar and played 3 Iron Maiden songs with the house band— James Alcock, Roland Roxx, Rick Smith, and Chris Ricci. He captured the attention of everyone there, especially James. A discussion was had between the members of the house band about creating an Iron Maiden tribute band with Sebastian. Maiden 06 was formed, and started out as a "one-off" band with the intention to do 1 show at the Rockpile. The response to that show was incredible! Due to scheduling conflicts with Roland and Chris, James, Sebastian, and Rick decided to recruit 20 year old Nathan Smith on guitar, and Tim Smith on the bass. The band is made up of 5 great guys who came together purely by circumstance, to celebrate and recapture the awesome sounds of Iron Maiden.
Rock Gods pays Tribute to the ROCK GODS who played the background soundtrack to the best time of our lives....AC/DC, GNR, Led Zeppelin.... and many more. Get ready to rock and a realy fun night of music! The show starts at 9:30pm, tickets are $7 in advance, $10 at the door
