Best Rock Cover Bands Found on YT

Postby JRNYMAN » Thu Jan 24, 2013 5:01 pm

What's the most impressive cover band you've stumbled across on YouTube? There are hundreds, if not, thousands of house bands, garage bands, etc.,who have posted their stuff on YT - many of which who should have never been allowed to pick up their respective instruments - and there are some that are pretty good. Then there's those bands that literally make you say, "HOLY SHIT!"... you know the ones I'm talking about. :lol:
Discovered these guys last year some time. At the time of this video, the band's members ranged in age from 11-14... and don't make any assumptions about these kids. They're hands down the most talented trio of kids I've ever seen. Here's their cover of RUSH's YYZ followed immediately during the same vid of one of their originals performed at some outdoor event. Boston's own Mindwalk Blvd.

My favorite is Jaded Heart. Before they wrote albums they were primarily a cover band. When they do include a cover on one of their albums it always ends up being the highlight on their albums. Their originals are hit and miss though. They're definitely better doing covers.

I am a big fan of ARRA. I think they're out of Chicagoland. Their YouTube page can be found at:

Lead vocals are handled by Ronnie Platt, who was in Shooting Star for a bit after Kevin Chalfant. He's got some serious pipes.
