Don’t Blame These Guys, The Crowd Loved Them

DSCN9865Someone 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.DSCN9877                                                        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.

Steve Weisgerber and Wade DuPont provided the solid backbeat, that such a varied show requires. Weisgerber, also took a turn on lead vocals for a couple of songs.

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.
