Cleveland, Ohio – The mighty Michigan hard rock act known at Pop Evil descended upon Cleveland this last week to the delight of the Rock Capital .The continued climb up the charts over the years has cemented this band into the heart and minds of fans everywhere . I met fans from Pittsburgh,Columbus and Toledo. To say this band has a following is a grave understatement as the fans traveled from far and wide and thru many age groups from teens to middle aged, there is something for everyone. The band is in current support of their self titled effort ” POP EVIL ” with the song ” Waking Lions ” reaching number #1 on rock radio.
The evenings set started off with high energy and the track ” Ways To Get High ” and didn’t let up for sixteen songs . Some of my favorites were ” Torn To Pieces ” and ” Bosses Daughter “. I really like the new song ” Waking Lions ” as in this time in history it can be applied to many situations. The guitar work of Nick Fuelling leads along with the solid rhythm guitar of Dave Grahs made this is sonic attack on the senses.
The bands put the fans in to forefront and really plays to them , the onstage energy of bassist Matt DiRito really kept the crowd electrified. The personal contact of vocalist Leigh Kakaty along with the rich melodies and soulful lyrics cannot be put into words , suffice to say awesome ! The newest member of the group and keeping the beat and proving that some of the best guys in a band can be a woman is Hayley Cramer, drummer extraordinaire.
