Leeroy Stagger sells out hometown show

Everybody loves Leeroy Stagger and his band so he sold out the Geomatic Attic, May 30.
 The room was packed to the brim with friends, family, band members and South Country Fair fLeeroy Stagger selling out his May 30 Geomatic Attic show. Photo by Richard Ameryolks for the last official show of the season.

 I missed Ryland Moranz’s opening set and Leeroy Stagger’s first set, but got to see Moranz playing the second set with the band.
 The set started off slowly with a pair of the more introspective numbers from Stagger’s tenth CD “Dream it All Away.”

 They began with “Ten Long Years,” which outlined Stagger’s career in music. He dedicated an older song “Brothers” to his band mates, who included Tyson Maiko on bass, Matthew Robinson writhing on lead guitar, percussionist Kyle Harmon and drummer Nick Stecz. He noted he will be doing the next stretch of touring on his own.

After that, he switched to electric guitar and played one of my favourites “Dirty Windshields.”

Stagger talked about  playing with Tyson Maiko in his first punk band in Victoria, calling him “his big brother.”

 Another highlight was a new song “New Music Biz Blues which had Bob Dylan like stream of consciousness lyrics and a pretty guitar solo played by Matthew Robinson who played another pretty solo on “You’re Not Alone.”

They wound up their second set of the night with haunting number “ Poison the Well.”
