Mother of Dylan
Mother Of Dylan featuring Don Martone started the night with his acoustic guitar and powerful bluesy voice that nearly lit the microphone on fire. "All These Years", "Blindness", "House Of Fire", "The Muse", "His" and a cover of Santigold's "Disparate Youth" featuring VulGarrity's Shawn Garrity on guitar were soulful and spectacular. It's always refreshing when you see acoustic music that's as loud as something that's electrified, Mother of Dylan definitely made that happen and it was awesome.
Lead singer of Providence rock & roll band Fall & Bounce and an extremely talented individual in her own right, the lovely Malyssa Bellarosa went up next with her beautiful voice and rhythmic guitar while everyone basked in the greatness. "Shine", "All My Love", "Never Be", "No Reason", "Of The Girl", "Right From Wrong" and "Out Of Time" encompassed a magnificent performance that exuded brilliance. Malyssa currently has a solo album titled Open Up available, music from one of the premier female musicians in Providence that you have to get your hands on.
Celebrating the release of Funkeology, VulGarrity consisting of the dynamic brother & sister duo of Shawn & Tracy Garrity exhibited the most unique stage presence you'll ever see. Combining a badass bass, emphatic drums, groovy guitar riffs and keyboard notes that will take you to another planet, VulGarrity have a distinct brand of rock that crosses over countless genres to produce a sound that is epic and fantastic. "Middle Finger Machine Gun", "From Underground", "Victorious", a rendition of The Human League's "Fascination", "Funkeology", "Leave Me Burning", "Wheel Of Fortune", a cover of INXS' "Good Times", "Don't Go In The House" and "Doot" lit up the room and had people grooving on the dancefloor. You better get yourself a copy of VulGarrity's Funkeology, it'll send chills up your spine and make you want to bang your head like there's no tomorrow.
Last up were special guests Dynasty Electric from Brooklyn. They were spellbounding, combining dancy synth beats to go along with scorching guitar riffs that made me feel like I was in a tripped out rave. Kicking things off with a trancing version of The Doors' "Hello, I Love You" followed up with "Burning", "Closer To Contact", "Golden Arrows", "Automatic Ecstatic", "Electric Love" had everyone cutting a rug and going absolutely crazy. Dynasty Electric has their latest album Golden Arrows currently available, a record that is sure to make you shake your hips and move your body to the beats.
