What a night! What a show!
The Boom Booms eventually arrived in Oyama via the new Highway 97 that just opened, around and back again through on to the Pelmewash Parkway after being pulled over by the police regarding the new speed limit. While there are some issues still to iron out with the new highway fans of the Boom Booms made no mistake to arrive and fill the venue! Once they hit the Big Blue Stage – fire!!!
The close to 200 music fans who arrived in Oyama to hear the Boom Booms were treated to a great musical evening. The band played fan favourites like “Lonely” and “You Know” from their ‘Hot Rum’ album plus new songs from their upcoming album with producer Chin Injeti like “Real Love” that already sounds like a classic.
“The Boom Booms concert goes down as one of the classic top concerts we’ve ever had in the orchard,” Big Al Gatzke.
A classic indeed. It was a perfect night and the sky was midnight bright while the dance floor bounced and swayed to the bands infectious beats. The songs felt like we all knew them for years and their rhythm kept us dancing all night long. We’re still listening to the album around the orchard!
They warmed us up as the sun was slowly starting to set and then when they hit the stage for their second set you knew it was going to be a special night. The band was tight, entertaining, funky, rocking and they had a great set of songs to perform. The vocals and melodies were golden and the audience were prevy to a classic Boom Boom performance, as it was their last show before heading south of the border for some more shows.
It was a unforgettable show and we hope to have the Boom Booms back next summer!
Thanks Geordie, Aaron, Theo, Richard, Sean & Tom.
