The first leg of the Gotham Rocks Showcase Tour ended in York, PA at Fat Daddy’s. Featuring one of the strongest lineups to date, this PA show was an awesome example of both the rock community and talent that Pennsylvania has to offer.
Opening the show was a good new PA band, Small Town Titans. Led by awesome vocals, Small Town Titans combined traditional hard rock with traditional songwriting that works well to showcase the considerable talents of singer, Phil Freeman. That combined with solid musicianship, makes for an entertaining package with tons of potential. http://www.reverbnation.com/smalltowntitans.
Another great up-and-coming band from York, PA was Ten Throne. This modern rock band features melodic vocals and good songwriting combined with heavy riffs and rhythms that feels fresh without trying too hard. Good vocals and excellent playing all around make for a band to watch. http://www.reverbnation.com/tenthrone Check out their song “Wicked” off of their debut album:.
Charetta, the touring band from NYC took the stage in dramatic fashion, and put on an energetic and polished live show that befits their 5 years as a band together. Front woman, Angelina Delcarmen is a star and powerhouse singer who’s vocals range from passionate to scathing to soaring to just plain rocking and the rest of the band keeps things tight and chunky behind her. www.charetta.com.
Closing the first leg of the Gotham Rocks Showcase Tour was Graces Downfall. A great band hailing from Scranton, PA, Graces Downfall qualifies as a regional band with excellent musicianship and a great live show. Playing a mix of originals and covers, they do a great job of whipping the crowd into a frenzy between their hair twirling performance energy and pro sound. http://www.reverbnation.com/gracesdownfall
