The night of the show itself was the first really cold day this season. The temp really dropped and we had 30 mph winds. I did not want to go outside, and was successful in that endeavor most of the day. In the end though, I was glad that we braved mother nature to make it out to the show. I got to see some musicians that I really enjoyed. The first three to go on were more of a mellow pace than I usually see and it was perfect for a cold week day night.
The first was Ardor Glowing. Apparently this band has a five and two piece version. We saw the two piece. I liked these guys a lot. Their vocals sound great together and the music was very pleasant. I would recommend checking them out.
Next up was Eric Hensley who performed solo. I don't believe he has a page about his solo music (at least I couldn't find one) but he also was a member of Autumn Clock.
After Eric, was Patrick Read who is from Nashville and mentioned that he hadn't performed live for a while but has clearly been playing because he certainly did not appear out of practice.
I thought Patrick had a great voice. I enjoyed listening to him very much, with the exception of a cover he did of a song I just don't like but I won't blame him too much for that.
The show was actually free, but donations went to the cause.
After the first three performances, things picked up quite a bit. The next two bands were a much faster pace. Jay, who is the one that put the show together, played a few songs and then made way for Nudnik, a Sex Pistols tribute band.
The evening was certainly an eclectic mix of sounds but I think it worked. And as a bonus the show was at 300 State, which is a place that recently got a bit of a remodel and upgrade to include pizza. And I don't mean regular bar pizza. I mean quality pizza place pizza. Go there and eat some. Do it now.
