On March 16 the Cleveland, Ohio band The Outsiders have their debut Niagara Falls performance before a full house in the Bear’s Den Showroom at the Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino.
A band that formed during the rock and roll era of the sixties, lead singer Eric told the crowd that they were going to play the music their parents hated. While the parents who grew up on Big Band music, Perry Como, and Pat Boone may have hated it, their kids loved it and though they are parents and grandparents themselves; the audience not only loved it, but remembered it and didn’t hesitate to join in on the singing…even trying to add a little of the backup harmonies now and then.
Performing a mix of their own songs and cover tunes the set lit began with the Outsiders hit “Respectable”. And continued with “Don’t Fight It’, “What Makes You So Bad?”, “Help Me Girl”, “Aint’ too Proud to Beg”, “Girls in Love”, “Show Me”, “Morning Girl”, “Double Shot”, “Precious and Few”, “Rock and Roll Heaven”, “Bend Me Shape Me”, “Charlena”, “Love Potion No 9”, “Gimme Gimme Good Living’”, “Good Livin”, and ended with The Outsiders hit “Tome Won’t Let Me”.
The band returned to the stage for a two song encore of “Little Latin Lupe Lu” and “Come on Up”.
The cold has not yet left western New York, but The Outsiders brought the heat and kept the crowd warmed up and ready to dance and sing along with the show.
