.LA-based rock group Tom Kurlander & PaleBlueSound play Cleveland, OH | May 2nd, 2012
Tom Kurlander & PaleBlueSound took the Sugar Burn Sessions Tour to Cleveland this week where they rocked the Grog Shop on May 2nd. Guitars were out in Cleveland on Wednesday night where singer-songwrtier Tom Kurlander and his band PaleBlueSound played his entire new album, Sugar Burn Sessions, live.
Multi-award winning lead guitarist Sean Spicer took no prisioners devouring the right side of the stage song after song. The band played with abandon for just over an hour blasting their arena rock sonic boom sound- not heard in rock for some time - out into the night. It was a tight set played by a band clearly comfortable in their skin who took the audience on a journey to a place called "PaleBlueSound." On the heels of the formidable opener "Baby I Want You," the band launched into "Bad Things" and never looked back. The set-list included "Never (Beverly Dr)," "The Sweetest Clock," "The Freeze" and "While You Were Sleeping." "Win" and the rousing arena rocker "Offline" were particular highlights.
The band is uniformly top-notch. David Harris commands the drums with mastery, delivering lightening riffs and crashing symbols with precision timing. TO was solid as a rock on bass and Quinton Zigler played the piano and Hammond organ effortlessly, layering each tune with thoughtful flourishes and melodic strokes. TK was out front singing and playing a Fender Tele and Martin acoustic, an artist clearly enjoying his art, a songwriter with a deep bench surrounded by a band of stellar musicians. It appears there may be a new rock band out there after all. More tour dates along the east coast are soon to be announced at www.paleblueentertainment.com|pbe.Music.
