Stagger and Zeus were kings of Sunday night

 Leeroy Stagger and the Wildflowers played a wicked show at the Slice, Sept. 27. Photo By Richard AmeryThere were a couple of sweet shows on Sept. 28, both of which started early.
 I only caught the end of Leeroy Stagger and the Wildflowers’ set of energetic country rock tinged folk which approximately 50 people were enjoying. They heard several tracks from his latest CD, “Everything is Real” including “Red Bandana,” and one of his best known songs “Just in Case,” plus  a few choice covers.
 Stagger’s band including lead guitarist Kevin Kane and bassist Tyson Maiko, played extremely tight and Stagger’s voice was in fine form. He brought local bluesman Paul Kype on stage for a couple of electrifying numbers and opening act Patrick Brealey on stage for the encore.
Down a few blocks at Henotic, I caught the end of a set by a really cool Toronto blues influenced garage rock band called Zeus.
 Zeus ended a set at Henotic  with “That’s All.” Photo by Richard AmeryThey had harmonized vocals and some sweet and dirty harmonized guitars on a wild cover of Genesis’ “That’s All” which ended their set.
