Unfortunately drummer Bobby Walker will not be performing with the band at the Bionics For Vets concert on Saturday. Taking the place on drums at the show will be former Rebel 5 drummer, Chad Henderson. Yoshi Gish, along with his band, is a sight to be seen and heard. Yoshi Gish Mixes a well balanced amount of Alternative, punk and rock music along with a fair amount of humor into his songs. To compare Yoshi Gish to another artists would be pointless as he has a unique style all to his own.
