The band itself is tight as ever, front man Chris Robertson has the vocals and the smooth guitar licks to entice, there is just something about Southern Hard Rock that no matter which way you spin it, this modern and meaty blues-based rock will never die and this band is proof of it. Is in their blood, is who they are.
The band’s sound is still full of little things that remind you of AOR giants from yesteryear like JOURNEY, SURVIVOR and REO SPEEDWAGON, but on COME ALIVE there is also a slightly heavier element that occasionally comes into play and when some of the songs get going they are pure melodic rock bliss.
Electric Mary’s gig that night definitely brought back something that reminded of the 70s. Musicians enjoying their music, emerging in their instruments during long solos and being laid back with the crowd, resulting in a mutual enjoyment of their music.
