Deuce Hard Music, News


Sevendust’s “Cold Day Memory” tour stopped at Mulcahy’s of Wantagh on Long Island Tuesday night, May 11th and the quintet from Atlanta, Georgia sure brought some Southern fire along with them. The band was absolutely electric throughout the entire performance, so much that you could sense it throughout the crowd. Opening with “Splinter” from “Cold Day Memory” the band took the opportunity to throw a solid 1-2-3 combo by following that with “Alpha” from the album of the same name and “Denial” from 1999’s “Home.”
Nearly hyperactive throughout the first half of the set, original guitarist Clint Lowery, finally back after a lengthy departure and a stint as Korn’s touring guitarist, displayed his incredible guitar skill akin to drummer Morgan’s energy on the skins. Morgan was playing so forcefully, he was using up no less than 2 pairs of sticks per song all of which went into a frenzied crowd. Not to be left out, guitarist John Connolly and bassist Vinnie Hornsby, took the opportunity to flick their picks into the crowd at any deserving fans, especially the ladies with voluptuous cleavage.
Not to be left out of the fun, Lajon displayed his vocal range while bounding back and forth across the stage, and took the opportunity to take a few picks and toss them to the crowd as well.
One of the major highlights of their set was the acoustic combo of “X-Mas Day” and “Angel’s Son.” This segment featured only Clint and Lajon on stage with Clint taking lead vocals on “X-Mas Day.” “Angel’s Son” was nothing short of powerfully emotional and received a warm welcome from the crowd.
There was one “mishap” during the set. During “Black” all of the microphones cut out in the middle of the song. This might have fazed Lajon and the band for a second but he didn’t show it still singing without the mike and eliciting the audience to sing for him. They absolutely obliged.
The encore consisted of a strong finish with “Praise” and “Face to Face” and then bid the crowd farewell to a whining guitar. Although Mulcahy’s isn’t the best venue for a world renowned band due to its small size, Sevendust stormed through and left their mark on a deserving pack of fans.
