Bonds of Mara@Lee’s Palace-Thurs.,July 25th,2019
By Wayne Baggs
Bonds of Mara, I was ready for some great high energy, loud rock. I got it in spades. These guys came out tight and ready to go, loud and proud right from start to finish.
The sum is greater than the parts with this made in Canada band. The pieces are pretty good at that. With members Brian Byrne (Ex-I Mother Earth), Sal Costa (Ex-My Darkest Days), Dave Benedict (Default) and Rich Beddoe (Ex-Finger 11 and of Saint Asonia).
They’re a new band, so I wasn’t familiar with much of what they would play. Well, it didn’t matter much, I found Bonds of Mara a great live band. There debut single “Lights Out” kicked ass live. Great song.
The enthusiastic crowd fed off the energy these guys were putting out making it even better. Just getting started like this is well, a great start. It looks like there is only one chance to catch them live, from what I can see — headlining Aug 24th, 2019 @ Georgian Triangle Music Festival Wasaga Beach, Canada.
