The Band Perry-Sat., May 3rd, 2014@Casino Rama

A big thank you goes out to Mr. Norman Mah for his great photography skills and support  during the concert series at Rama.  The Band Perry an American pop/country musical group consisting of siblings: Kimberly Perry(lead vocals, guitar, drums and piano), Neil Perry(Mandolin, drums and accordion) and Reid Perry(bass guitar and backing vocals) were at Casino Rama on Saturday May 3rd 2014.  A predominantly young crowd attended the near capacity show and when the lights went down the fans “rushed the front stage” . The concert showcased many of their hits: “Hip to my Heart”,” If I Die Young “(A number one hit) and “You Lie” from their first  two albums.  They covered Keisha/Pitbull version of  “Timber” which had the crowd cheering loudly during their rendition of that song.  Also they did a great cover of  the fun song by Queen’s” Fat Bottom Girls” which had a lot of energy and spunk.  Kimberly Perry worked the crowd and got them involved by singing with her during many of the songs throughout the night.  All 3 Perry’s showed their versatility on different instruments during the night and their touring guitarist influences were shown with his Eddie Van Halen whaling solo.  Since signing their record contract in August 2009 and releasing their self titled  debut album on October 12, 2010 with the aid of Garth Brook’s manager, they’ve been touring on a consistent basis.  Their second album “Pioneer” which was produced by fame producer Rick Rubin was released April 2, 2013. climbed the country charts quickly and peaked at #2.  The band performed in the pre-game show of Super Bowl XLVIII, on Sunday, February 2, 2014 and continue to tour world wide.  Skies the limit for this young band and the Perry’s definitely have a big following here in Canada and all over the world.  The Perry’s made for a  fun night combining their hits with some cover tunes at Rama. It will be interesting to see how they evolve in a few years as their music experiences expand while putting  on some more miles on their musical journey.
