Sevendust at The Webster Theater Hartford CT May 08, 2022
A normal Sunday for me is usually a quiet uneventful day but not this Sunday. I ventured out to The Webster Theater in Hartford CT to go to the Sevendust show and it was anything but quiet.
Sevendust is out on the road celebrating the 21st anniversary of their third studio release Animosity. Along for the tour are DeepFall, Plush and All Good things.
DeepFall led by singer Terry DeWit along with Tim Ossenfort on guitar, Tim King on keyboards, Taylor Brandt bass and Jim Sully on drums came out and put on a great show. They hail from Michigan but if I didn’t know any better I would have thought they were local to Hartford as the crowd including myself was totally into them and. They put on a great set of their original rock and even threw in a cover of Lenny Kravitz’s ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’. They have toured with bands like HELLYEAH and Alter Bridge. I highly recommend going and checking them out, you will not regret it. See their website.
Up next was Plush, an all female band who bring a lot of talent to the table. Their music is straight up hard rock. Singer/guitar player Moriah Formica, drummer Brooke Colucci, Ashley Suppa on bass and guitarist Bella Perron wowed the crowd with their incredible energy and amazing vocals. They played original songs from their self-titled debut. They also threw in a cover. It was the song ‘Barracuda’ from the band Heart. I’m sure Ann and Nancy Wilson from Heart would approve.
Next was All Good Things. They are a five piece band from Los Angeles consisting of Dan Murphy – vocals & guitar, Andrew Bojanic – guitar & vocals, Liz Hooper – bass, keyboard & vocals, Miles Franco – guitar & bass, vocals and Tim Spier – drums & vocals. Their music is a mix of alternative/hard rock. I have never seen them before but they definitely gained a new fan. The crowd loved them and a lot of people were singing along with them so apparently I have been living under a rock or something.
By the time Sevendust hit the stage the crowd was ready. They started the set with the first three tracks off Animosity – T.O.A.B, Praise and Trust. They played every song off of the album. Singer Lajon Witherspoon was visibly emotional several times throughout the show. At one point he said don’t tell people you were at a concert tell them you were at a “family reunion because that’s what this is”. The whole band was firing on all cylinders with lead guitarist Clint Lowery, John Connolly on rhythm guitar, bassist Vince Hornsby and the beast keeping the beat on drums Morgan Rose. I have seen Sevendust many times including the original Animosity tour and I will say that these guys have not lost a beat. Some other highlights for me were the song’s ‘Angels Son’, ‘Crucified’ and ‘Damaged’. They completely tore it up and came to play and were clearly leaving it all on stage. The crowd couldn’t have been happier. If they are coming to a city near you DON’T MISS THEM!
