Bobby Blitz commented leading up to the gig: "We had a few issues getting this rescheduled show together. But to hell with the issues, we all have problems! And wouldn't you know it our bro and your's, Phil Demmel to the rescue! The show must and will go on! See you at the Welmomt Jersey..."
Phil Demmel: "So excited to jam with my bro's in Overkill in NJ!! I'm neck-deep in learning the parts and expect a raging show!"
Jason Bittner: "Even though I am disappointed that our very own Dave Linsk can not participate in this show, I am more than psyched and confident that my longtime friend Phil Demmel will get the job done for us, we have a long history together playing a bunch of NAMM events and have toured together in the past so this should be a lot of fun!"
