American Idol season nine alum Siobhan Magnus debuted her new project, Doubtful Guest, in a huge way with a Nashville showcase and Stageit.com event at 12th and Porter this past Wednesday (March 27).

The ‘90s supergroup, which includes members Tony Fredianelli (Third Eye Blind), Sammy Hudson (Everclear), Peter Klett (Candlebox) and Tommy Stewart (Godsmack,Fuel), raised $23,610 through Kickstarter to cover expenses for the band’s maiden voyage -- and it seems to be paying off.

"Doubtful Guest's showcase in Nashville went off like a rocket on Wednesday night before a packed crowd, live and online," wrote the band on Magnus' website. "It was a tremendous success thanks to the contributions of all of our supporters."

While in Music City, the group stopped by the local FOX affiliate and treated viewers to acoustic performances of “Shimmer” by Fuel and “I Will Buy You a New Life” by Hudson’s former band, Everclear.

The show at 12th and Porter, however, was a plugged-in affair. On the set list: “Semi-Charmed Life” by Third Eye Blind, and a mind-blowing cover of “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette.

UPDATE: Doubtful Guest was originally slated to perform at the New England Music Awards on April 13. Due to unforeseen circumstances, that appearance was canceled.
