But tonight is all about Sinner's Prayer they took too the stage Opening the show with the song Outsider by supergroup Black Country Communion. Mixing in original songs with covers just about every other one in their nine song set turned out to be a very good move . I was happily surprised when they played a rare Badland's song called Healer. A highlight of the night was an original song called Feel It Now. If you were to ask me I'd choose that as the first single off their CD (hopefully there is one in the works?). What was also a pleasant surprise was the addition of the famous guitar solo and drum solo that bands don't seem to do anymore. Sinner's Prayer are reminiscent of rock bands of the 70's such as Rainbow and Deep Purple. These of course are only influences you can hear in their music they of course have a sound all their own. In closing I felt like I was at an arena rock show tonight. The band interacted with the audience and kept the evening flowing without long pauses in between songs. Which from a spectators point of view was well appreciated. I look forward to seeing a long future from this band. As of now you can facebook the individual members to keep up to date on their various projects. You can also friend the band at www.facebook.com/sinnersprayerny to keep track of this killer band.

Tonight I happen to come down for their original band Thursday and it was the eve of there first month in operation. Gracing the stage tonight was Tara Hack, Jebus and Heavy Duty Ego. I only got to stay for the first two bands. Tara Hack opened the show with her guitar and a rendition of Alanis Morissettes "Ironic". This girl can sing and play. Her voice melts sweetly in your ears just like a piece of sweet chocolate melts in your mouth. She is that good and maybe better. She shines on her originals as I think most artist do when performing their own material. To find out more about Tara you checkout her site at www.tarahack.com
So in closing I was blown away by both the venue and Tara Hack tonight. I wish them both much success in the future.
