This weekend, I was able to get back to one of my favorite Long Island spots, Revolution Bar and Music Hall. Friday night the venue hosted a handful of acts, ranging from acoustic and soulful to pure rock n roll and classic, upbeat pop.
Vista (pictured in the second of the 2 pictures below) brought vibrant, loud energy to the room with their vocalist’s powerful voice and wild dance moves. Her charisma really held the audience’s attention and made it hard not to check them out.
The headliners of the event, The Weekend Riot, showcased their ability to not only write their own catchy tunes, but put their own special twist on popular covers. They made the audience laugh and just as well brought a palpable, fun energy into the place.
Revolution is a great venue for bands like this. It gives locals a chance to perform in front of the headlining acts plus helps build exposure for the artists. I’m definitely looking forward to the next time I head out to Amityville for a show!
