The Mark Hall band got a double date at the Slice, last weekend, Aug. 7 and 8Mark Hall at the Slice, Aug. 8. Photo by Richard Amery.
 They will be back at the Slice this weekend, Aug. 14 and 15 with special guest guitarist Braeden Rouse.

 I caught an eclectic set of classic rock, country and even some Ramones, Aug. 8 while I was enjoying my King Richard pizza.

 They had a decent sized crowd , cheering and enjoying a socially distanced night out. And even a couple dancers.

 The trio, including guitarist/vocalist, mark Hall, drummer Raz and a bassist Ian Morrice,  ran the gamut of classic rock and country hits.
 Mark Hall and the bassist traded lead vocals, each singing behind their own plexiglass box.

 They performed an excellent version of “Tulsa Time” and followed it up with the Georgia Satellites’  “Keep your hands To Yourself.” They switched gears for Def Leppard’s ’80s power ballad hit “Hysteria.”
 They switched gears again with Mark Hall taking lead vocals for a cover of the Ramones “ I Wanna Be Sedated.”

 They showed off dual vocal harmonies on some Beatles before going country again. They even went lounge with a sweet cover of “Hot Hot Hot” which Buster Poindexter made popular in the ’80s.
 They wound up their set with a version of Cheap Trick‘s “ I Want You To Want Me.”
