Redrum Triumph started with a very loud set of zombie inspired folk/ rock music.

As usual, Steve Foord, Kelsey Jesperson and Evan Eushenko switched instruments a lot and sang a lot of songs about zombies and a solid cover of Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War.”

 I don’t know why a three piece folk trio needs to be so loud, but you could hear every note and ghostly vocal harmony.

The Steve Brockley band was a lot quieter. The trio featuring Brockley on guitar, a stand-up bassist and a drummer played  a low key , but solid set of catchy folk rock.

 Brockley sounded a lot like Paul Simon, while his band added pleasant vocal harmonies  which reminded me of Crosby, Stills and Nash mixed with Ghostkeeper.

 They began with an older song, Nancy, off of their first album, then concentrated on material from their latest CD “Le Boeuf.”

 One of the CD's highlights “Classic Car,” was also a highlight of the show. To wind things down,  Brockley tried to get the audience to sing along with the “oh, oh, oh” chorus of “Captain Joe,” another one of the  CDs highlights.

 The harmonies and the Paul Simon feel all came together on the outstanding “Work.”
