The Chevelles rock the Place with the hits

E-mail Print PDF

 The Chevelles were doing a double date , July 9 and 10 at the Place in the old Average Joes building. The new arcade bar isn’t  going to feature a lot of live music, but decided to go whole hog for the Chevelles’ shows with a great light show and impeccable sound.

 The popular long standing local classic rockers never fail to deliver all of  a good sized crowd’s  favourite hits.

 They ave also been working in covers I haven’t heard them play before including Dire Straits’“ Walk of Life”. 


 They added ELO’s Don”t Bring Me Down and even knocked off an impressive version of Prince’s “Lets Go Crazy.” I was hoping  newest Chevelle Seamus Chevelle, aka Joe Brewster would pull out the bagpipes for AC DC’s “ It’s a Long Way To The Top,” but I didn’t catch it.


 A buddy of mine had never seen the Chevelles in the dozen odd years he’s been in Lethbridge, so I joined him at the Place again on Saturday.


The Chevelles waited until the packed house was finished watching the fight and kept most of them with another set of hits that kept the dance floor hot with beautiful women dancing the night away.


Tim Carter is always an affable and charismatic frontman, but this set was pretty much Woody Chevelle aka Scott Kanashiro’s set, as he dominated on acoustic guitar and lead vocals for Chilliwack’s “Fly At Night,” Nitty Gritty Dirt band’s “ Fishing in the Dark” and added keyboards to a lot of others including doing triple duty on “Fly At Night.


 All of the hits were accounted for including Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama” and a couple of Elton John songs. They played some more Dire Straits as  drummer Don Plettell and “Money For Nothing.”

 Joe Brewster sang his always entertaini

ng cover of Billy Idol’s “White Wedding.”


“Real Wild Child” was a highlight as always and  they brought back “I Ran” before ending the set with “500 Miles.“
