Legendary rock band Great White made their debut in Canyon Lake when they played to a sold-out audience on Apr. 6.

Joining lead singer Mitch Malloy on stage was Mark Kendall on guitar, Michael Lardie on guitar and keyboards, Scott Snyder on bass and Audie Desbrow on drums. Their 12-song setlist included “Save Your Love,” “House of Broken Love,” “Lady Red Light” and the band’s Grammy-nominated Best Hard Rock Performance hit “Once Bitten, Twice Shy.”

“Mitch Malloy’s performance as lead singer of the band was one of the most dynamic performances I have ever seen in over 30 years in the business,” said concert promoter Doug Schultz. “Having a band the caliber of Great White play here was a major coup for Canyon Lake.”
