So, I've just had the pleasure of attending a private party featuring the 'musical stylings' of Tony Vasquezz. Running late due to unforseen circumstances, I arrive to smooth and meticulous rhythmic strumming. An array of various traditional songs - complete with historical background - and favourites of a different kind. Tony was not afraid to put down his guitar, turn on his iPad based backing tracks, pick up the mic and perform 'Fly me to the Moon' while paying homage to the initial writer as well as the man who made the song Famous: Frank Sinatra.
With excellent food, drink and song, one cannot go wrong visiting or performing traditional 'styling's' at El Porton in the Bronx. The Vibes of Tony V. Were a breezy pleasure and if anything negative could be said it would be his vox had a difficult time keeping on par with such a metronomical and almost click tracked perfection of his strumming. But then, how could one expect anyones vox to match - in style and on point perfection - such artistic stringed-instrument craftmanship.
Check out the Review we received from this past Saturdays show at Freddy's.
We were lucky enough to catch fan favorite InDaze at Freddy's in Brooklyn's Park Slope South neighborhood. The show was packed with all manner of dancing fans singing along. So what has this reviewer been missing out on by not having seen InDaze until now? Recall the best parts of 311 and Sublime, and you'll arrive at InDaze's high energy party music, powerful vocals alive with personality (Sublime's Nowell rather than 311's Hexum), and pop gems of the reggae variety liberally sprinkled with crowd-pleasing rock breakdowns. Going further, it has been said that all great bands have one thing in common: a tightly wound rhythm section. And InDaze has it in spades. So check 'em out now, before their growing fan base means cavernous music halls over not-a-bad-seat-in-the-house bars and lounges.
As you can see the band has progressed a bit, new name and some new tracks. Got the preview/first mix of This River up. Check out the YouTube channel as well: www.youtube.com/STONERWAYnyc. Peace and Carrots
