BEST ROCK BAND
Your vote for best rock band was formed four years ago by lead vocalist Anastasia Gilliam and guitarist Nils Rosenblad. They combine rock, R&B and blues, playing original music, as well as some covers with their unique twist. And when you see them live, it’s kind of hard to take your eyes off the stage—Anastasia’s powerhouse vocals belies her petite stature, and as ferocious as Nils’ guitar work is, he just can’t seem to wipe the smile off his face. These are people who love what they do, and it shows. The complete band these days features Jerry Byers or sometimes Rebecca Young on bass and Patrick Major or Michael Buono on drums. You can catch them Monday and Saturday nights at the Lobby Lounge in the Four Seasons Resort Wailea, some Wednesdays at Paradice Bluz in Lahaina, and Fridays either at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua or at Longhi’s in Lahaina.
