Curtis Peoples, Keaton Simons, Tony Lucca- New York City

Triple threats shine during Bitter End stop on East Coast tour
Keaton SimonsThe Curly Rock Tour stopped in New York City and I was ready to get my share of good music and plenty of curly hair. Even though I was only familiar with Curtis Peoples’ music, Keaton Simons and Tony Lucca seemed to be very promising. And they did not disappoint me.

Keaton Simons started the show. It was obvious that very few people knew who he was, yet he won them over before the first song was over. His music is a perfect balance between his deep lyrics and his soothing voice. The crowd seemed to specially like “Without Your Skin” and “Nobody Knows.” I was very impressed by Keaton’s guitar playing skills. He is probably one of the guitarists I’ve seen so far. To my surprise, he ended his set with a cover of Gnarls Barkly’s “Crazy,” whom he played guitar for during his last tour. Overall, Keaton had an outstanding stage presence and he definitely got the crowd hooked. I can guarantee that it won’t be the last time I’ll be seeing this guy.

Up next was Curtis Peoples. Curtis is one of my favorite musicians and like always, he did not disappoint me. He began his set with a new song, “Tell Me I’m Wrong,” which the crowd immediately loved. Following with the popular “Heart Will Fall,” Peoples proved that even with two acoustic guitars he can still rock the place. Perhaps the best song of the night was the newly titled “Worst Love of All Time;” I cannot wait to listen to more of Curtis’s new material out this fall. Without a doubt, Curtis seemed to be the most popular performer of the night. And he has every right to be.

Tony Lucca followed. By the first guitar strum, both the younger and the older crowd alike were hypnotized by his voice. I never knew the Bitter End could be completely silent. He makes you listen to him. Both in the piano and the guitar, he proved to be the epitome of singing your heart out. His bittersweet lyrics were perfectly complemented by his acoustic guitar and the attention of the audience. I was completely mesmerized by Tony. Now I understood why he was up last.

Although the Curly Rock Tour finished up a week ago, I would still recommend seeing each of these amazing artists next time the come by your neck of the woods. Even though seeing them all together was an amazing experience, I am sure that seeing them individually is just as great. Each one of them proved to be amazing musicians with exceptional live performances. Whether you listen to their CDs or get to experience the real deal, you are guaranteed to have an amazing night.
