Paul Kype and Texas Flood with Steve Keenan on lead guitar opened the show with a hot version of “I Shot the Sheriff.” They tweaked their lineup slightly for the second set, featuring Zojo Black featuring Greg Gomola on vocals, Paul Kype on bass, Kyle Harmon on drums and lead guitarist Evan Eushenko. They played a high-octane, hyperactive set of classic rock, which had the good sized crowd on their feet and on the dance floor including some Jethro Tull, Deep Purple’s “Hush,” as well as Los Lonely Boys flavoured originals. Eushenko sang a twangy ’60s flavoured version of Michael Rault’s “Sidewinder”
