 I missed sets by Leigh Doerksen and Dan Puurveen’s new duo Church as well as  Jesse and the Dandelions  but arrived just as the New Weather Machine was getting started.

The band featured Esper Records’ founders Jon Martin on guitar and vocals as well as Jesse and the Dandelions’ Jesse Northey on bass as well as special guest Brad Brouwer on drums.

 As usual, Martin  displayed an impressive set of vocal pipes reminiscent of early ’70s classic rock like David Bowie and Mott The Hoople, as well as played some very tasteful guitar leads.

 They played  several older crowd pleasing New Weather Machine songs as well as newer fare, one of which even had the makings of a mosh pit beginning in front of the stage.
