You Know the Voice: Jess Harnell (2010)

Feast your eyes on this:

We knew Jess Harnell could sing. Examples of this could be found on Animaniacs, for instance. But who knew the man could rock out?

Rock Sugar is a rock cover band that specializes in mashing up classic rock songs. Usually 2 at a time, sometimes 3. For example, the above track, "Don't Stop The Sandman", takes Journey's classic ballad, "Don't Stop Believin'", and attaches it to the instrumental intro to Metallica's classic anthem, "Enter Sandman". The two songs are actually separated by 10 years (1981-91). Seems they've played almost exclusively on the West Coast, though they have played some European festivals. I guess you could say they're somewhere below bands like Fozzy and Anvil on the rock spectrum.
