Good Ol’ Goats give good memories of South Country Fair

The Slice ended up being full for an excellent set by a couple of  familiar faces, Sept. 19.

 I arrived in the middle of  an energetic set of rock and roll from Edmonton band Eyes on Ivan, the side project of Owls by Nature banjo and keyboard player Cory Dee, who have played Lethbridge several times.

They put a roots rock spin on ’80s synth rock classics like  “Danger Zone,” and  “Hungry Like the Wolf,” adding some steel guitar, banjo and mandolin to well worn hits as well as their own up tempo originals.

 They began their set slowly and built up the energy by the end of the first set.

A highlight of that was a song about “my ex girlfriend  who is now the bass player’s new girlfriend,” according to singer/ guitarist Clayton Parsons.

 There was plenty of energy and instrumental prowess and excellent vocal harmonies especially on a couple of ’50s/ ’60s doo wop inspired numbers.
