Last Friday, our Art Director Mike Mertes attended TESLA’s show at Talking Stick Resort. Mertes said it was standing room only in Talking Stick’s showroom, where it was a much more intimate experience.

TESLA has been rocking the music scene since 1982 with hits such as “Love Song,” “The Way it Is,” and “Heaven’s Trail (No Way Out).”  Guitarist Dave Rude joined the four original members for Friday night’s show.
