Coal Creek Boys show improvement after tour

E-mail Print PDF

The Owl Acoustic Lounge was packed , Aug. 13  for Ali Stuart’s birthday and music from the Coal Creek Boys and the Necessities.

They played an entertaining set of upbeat, uptempo country, rock music.

And while I couldn’t understand lead singer John Paul Smith’s  lyrics, I could appreciate his guitar picking.

 Guitarist Devin Gergel and bassist Dino Scavo were locked in with drummer Dustin Gergel and put on a show which had a good sized crowd moving amongst their chattering.

They had a handful of girls trying to do a line dance in front of the stage near the end of their set, which wound down with a cover of the Marshall Tucker Band’s southern rock classic “Can’t You See.”
 I wasn’t able to stay for the Necessities’ set which closed the night and I missed Johnny Rains’ opening set.
