Last Stand originated to deliver a fresh sound of rock music that is designed to take you on a progressive journey into the void. Wes Hall, lead singer and guitarist, found his lightning-shredding sound playing in the great unknown just outside the swamplands of New Orleans. Without anyone to be seen miles away, he was able to crank his cab to level 20 and shoot lightning bolts out of his guitar. If you ever feel as though you are hearing thunder at one of our shows, you better check again, folks, that's just Lynn Greer pounding his heart and soul as if Thor himself gave Greer two of his hammers for drumsticks. Last Stand's bass guitarist is Shaun Lopez. His smooth groove is the glue that holds both the thunder and lightning together through a rumbling whirlwind of balance and harmony. All together onstage, the world stands still as our hearts pour out the love we all share through the gift of music.
