SILVERTIDE; House of Blues; Las Vegas, NV; 11/17/04

Reviewed by Richard Fenkel  

    The Las Vegas House of Blues played host to Philadelphia's Silvertide on Wednesday, November 17, 2004, Silvertide is pure rock'n'roll with a touch of soulful blues. This rock sound is evident on their debut album, "Show and Tell." 

    The first single off this high energy album, "Ain't Coming Home," was well received by the Vegas crowd. Silvertide seem to be intent on bringing back classic rock with a fresh and unique approach. 

    The members of Silvertide are very charismatic on stage. In fact, vocalist Walt Lafty elicits visions of the legendary Robert Plant. Lafty's vocals sound loud and clear.

    Lead guitarist Nick Perri has a playing style similar to Angus Young. This guy is one of the best guitarists on tour today. He is simply explosive on stage. His partner on rhythm guitar, Mark Melchiorre Jr. is awesome as well. In fact, bassist Brian Weaver plays like a veteran and drummer Kevin Frank exhibits great timing.

    In addition to their veteran playing style, these guys have written some awesome tracks: "Mary Jane," California Rain," and "Devil's Daughter" to name a few.

    Silvertide gave the House of Blues an awesome evening to remember. Check the band out on tour and pick up "Show and Tell." 

    Rock'n'roll is alive and well!
