Around the world St. Patrick’s Day is viewed as a day of celebration – a day for the wearing of the green, singing Irish songs, …and drinking Guinness.
But the day isn’t just abut Irish tunes. On March 17 one of Buffalo’s greatest hidden treasures gave their debut performance at Epic Restaurant and Lounge for a night of music and fun.
Fans of K-Ride know that they have found the gold at the end of the rainbow with this musical treasure.
Katie and More than Me’s Justin and Joey shared the vocal duties while Joey played guitar with Justin on guitar…and everything else including a kazoo…for three hours of a laid back intimate performance that felt like more like friends watching the band rehearsal.
Katie opened the show with “Black Horse and a Cherry Tree” and the rollicking fun was on. From The Beatles, The Monkees, and Elvis to John Denver, Amy Winehouse, and “American Idol” winner Phillip Phillips; K-Ride covered a wide variety of songs as they crossed the decades of music.
Other musical renditions during the night included “Daydream Believer”, “Valerie”, “Home”, “James”, “Hey, Jude”, “Forget You”, “Suspicious Minds”, “Happy”, a medley of “Proud Mary”, “Stuck in the Middle with You”, and “Burnin’ Love”, “Country Roads”, “Wagon Wheel”, “Cecillia” by Simon and Garfunkel, “Moves Like Jagger”, “Hey Joe”, by Jimi Hendrix, “I’m a Believer”, “Counting Stars” by One Republic, and the traditional Irish song “Whiskey in a Jar” as rendered by the Irish band This Lizzy.
Attending a K-Ride show is no sit down and chat affair. Engaging the audience, the and encourages participation in the festivities including the Build a Band segment where they break out the percussion instruments and invite fans to join along in the music.
St. Patrick’s Day may be a day for the Irish, but K-Ride proves that every day is a good day for music.
