LSCO rocks the block in the rain

Paul Kype and Texas Flood were a highlight of LSCO Rocks the Block 2. Photo by Richard AmeryDespite a few rain showers, the Lethbridge Senior Citizen’s Organization managed to double the number of people who packed the Park in the Civic Field (11 Street South, 6 Ave.) for their second annual LSCO Rocks the Block,  June 11.

 I only caught a few acts.
 I was impressed by the cacophony of the Hibikiya drummers, who played on through the rain as numerous people of all ages sat comfortably in lawn chairs in front of the stage, huddled in rain jackets beneath umbrellas.

A set of classic rock from Who’s Yer Daddy was all right, playing familiar hits by the likes of .38 Special, Free and other ’70s icons.

 Guitarist Greg Gomola took on lead vocal duties on a couple of songs including one that sounded like a Los Lonely Boys song and another more reggae flavoured song.

They also played their excellent version of Lynard Skynard’s “Simple Man.”
The music also featured Brent Hutchinson on saxophone.
