Upstairs at Henotic, Feb. 19, the Grapes of Wrath and Leeroy Stagger band member Kevin Kane  put on an enrapturing solo show featuring a lot of laid back solo material.

Having bassist Matt Robinson and a drummer really help flush out the band’s sound. They played  crowd favourites like ‘Mary Magdalene which is powered by an exotic sounding acoustic guitar riff. Vocalist / guitarist Steve Foord’s voice is very similar to Rob Thomas’ voice especially on their song about carnies.
