When going to see a band live you don't always know what to expect. Sometimes the show isn't as flashy, loud or maybe the band just doesn't sound the same as it did on cd or radio. Other times the band just doesn't have it anymore. Last night 54.40 proved that none of those are even close to being true in their case. That's right, 54.40 rocked the stage last night in Oshawa at The Music Hall Nightclub and Concert Theatre. After all you can't have a great Canadian band like 54.40 play just any venue, in order to be seen properly for a great experience you need a venue like The Music Hall backed by it's incredible staff.
I have seen more shows then I can remember but I tell you all now that last nights show wasn't just a show, it was an experience and will be remembered for a long time. They hit the stage after opening acts Old James and The House Call set the mood with great sets of their own. I do have to give special mention to The House Call. Every time I see them they get better and I'm looking forward to seeing where they go in the future. Each one of them is a credit to the band. After the openers warmed up the crowd, cheers ripped through the entire venue as they took the stage. No need for introductions or words to the crowd they went right to business and business was great.
Every song was met by cheers, clapping and smiles as people got ready to sing along to another loved tune. Even I couldn't help smiling and singing along as I shot this event. Everywhere I turned people were singing, smiling and dancing, it was a vibe you can't find just anywhere, it was a special moment shared by all in attendance. If you haven't seen them live then you are missing out indeed and should fix it as soon as possible.
