 The local blues/rock band returned to the Slice, Jan. 11 to play an array of energetic covers and originals.

 Frontman Greg Gomola sang most of the songs, though bassist Paul Kype sang some Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Pride and joy.” as Braw Brouwer kept the time on drums.

 Evan Eushenko, playing baritone guitar and harp also sang Michael Rault’s “Sidewinder” as Texas Flood Keyboardist Earl McAuley added excellent piano and organ solos.

While it is always enjoyable to hear them singing classics like Deep Purple’s “Hush” and Jethro Tull’s “Locomotive Breath (which  Gomola dedicated to Tyler Freed, I always enjoy their originals more.

 Gomola's song about  Shaela Miller, “Modern  Day Marilyn Monroe” was a highlight as was the laid back reggae feel of “Keep it Real.”
