Temperatures outside on the final day of November hovered around the freezing mark, but inside the Niagara Falls Hard Rock Café it was on fire when the younger generation took the stage for some Rock and Roll by Rockabilly Steve and Noah Moses.
Rockabilly Steve got the night of music started with the “St. Louis Shuffle”.
Performing music from artists like Albert Collins, Howlin’ Wolf, and Charles Brown; Rockabilly Steve’s set list included “Frosty”, the original songs “Catfish Blues” and Won’t You Ride My Bicycle”, “Have a Good Time”, “I Got a New Cadillac”, “Smokestack Lightning”, “Dark Night”, and “It’s Been a Long Day”.
Like B.B. King, Steve names his guitars. For this performance, he brought Sherry.
Though he played Rock and Blues, Steve’s music had the underlying tone of Rockabilly music and when the piece called for the sound of a horn, Steve provided it himself.
Next up was Noah Moses with his guitar and harmonica; along with his brother on drums and a 13 year old bass player.
Noah performed music ranging from James Taylor to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers He also performed some original tunes. The set list included “The Garden”, “Steamroller”, “From the Water”, “Simple Man”, “Won’t Back Down”, and the holiday tune “Run Run Rudolph”.
The talent on the stage showed that there is more than video games on the minds of the younger generation.
