A good friend of LaurenIgnited.com recommended I check out Graceland Ninjaz; after about 10 seconds of watching one of their videos, I was intrigued to learn more. And the more I learn the more I really love these dudes. Not only are they a super talented cover band (who can cover everything from Elvis to Justin Timberlake to Biggie), they have more than a few Emmy’s within the band. These guys don’t mess around. They are throwing a party at House of Blues this weekend called Ninjapalooza. You can get in for free if you dress up as a Ninja or a Bunny (Happy Easter, y’all). Tickets start at $12 and go up from there.
