Someone to Blame at McDonald Park
The weekly Thursday night Music in The Park concert at McDonald Park, on the North Shore, brought out a good-sized crowd to see Someone to Blame. Family, friends, work mates and fans showed up to hear this talented five-some. They combined country/roots artists like Dwight Yoakum, the Glorious Sons and the Brothers Osborne with popular eighties and nineties songs like Short Skirt / Long Jacket from Cake, 3 AM by Matchbox Twenty and The Middle by Jimmy Eat World. Yet, they did not forget classic tracks like You Wreck Me and Runnin Down a Dream by Tom Petty, Footloose by Kenny Loggins and Voodoo Thing by Colin James. Everybody was given plenty of room for solos and it is enjoyable to see a cover band that has a keyboard player. Murray Linfitt got to stretch out a bit on Mama by the Glorious Sons and a few other tunes. Murray Linfitt – Keyboards
Jason Fulton provided good range on lead vocals and chipped in with some rhythm guitar. Bret Koroll, lead guitarist, showed off his talents on quite a few tunes, including Voodoo Thing.

Someone to Blame, is one of the few local bands that has t-shirts for sale and quite a few fans were seen wearing them that night. It looked like everybody had a good time, there was lots of dancing and McDonald Park resonated with happy sounds on another Music in the Park summer Thursday night.
