Gibson Showroom NYC played host to a musical extravaganza this past saturday night with beverages provided by Konig Ludwig beer & El Arco tequila when it let Duke’s Band, Supermajor & The Lobbyist take over a few of the former Hit Factory studios. The three bands are all “show bands” as they were each born via some sort of theatrical experience. Duke’s Band from ‘Very Very’, a new Shakespeare Rock Show, Supermajor sprung out of the Brick Theatre and The Lobbyists used to play, literally, the lobby at the Flea Theatre.
The night started with The Lobbyists, a folky indie band with a splash of country backed by beautiful harmonies and creative songwriting. They had me tapping my foot along as soon as I walked in the door. They are feel good music, music that warms the heart.
Supermajor amped up the crowd with their pop/alt/rock sound. They have a contagious energy, amazing vocals and an almost comedic while rocking vibe. They also have a gal who rocks a red keytar, which is always awesome.
Duke’s Band ended the night with its repertoire of songs from Very Very (the Shakespearean Rock Show) along with original music from Jay Leibowitz’s Pedestrian Life and new music from Zac Lasher. They closed the evening with their theatrical style of rock. Hard drums and fast guitars with catchy songs that are still running through my head.
