Old Dominion conquered Kegs stage
Kegs Canal Side recently hosted Old Dominion, Steve Moakler and Small Town Shade. Despite not having their lead vocalist Small Town Shade put on a great opener with their country style and creativity. They did a cover of Johnny Cash “Folsum Prison Blues” that was an instant crowd favorite. After some conversing with the crowd and shout outs to their home town of Cortland, they made way for Steve Moakler, who is touring with Old Dominion. With a groove that aims to please easy listening ears, Steve Moalker is very down to earth, but not too far. They keep it light and exciting with real emotion. Their hit “Love Drunk” is a Kenney Chesney inspired song and a crowd favorite. They did a wonderful job warming up the already rowdy crowd for the head liner Old Dominion.
They have lots of talent and quality that enhances the listener’s enjoyment and clever lyrics to keep ones interest. The atmosphere they produced at kegs was incredible! Yes the fans cheered and loved the other artists but when Old Dominion came on to the stage the crowd erupted in a welcoming roar. Everyone had been waiting for them and it showed. The first song they did “Til It’s Over” was spot on! Every note and chord was struck perfectly.
Matthew Ramsey, the bands lead vocalist showed some love to the crowd walking around, shaking hands and being very friendly which the audience just loved. The night seemed to be more alive with bright colorful lights and balloons filled with glow sticks and little white stars that flew all over as the band played flawlessly. When playing their hit “Snapback” most of the audience sang along. Vibrant lights added to the electric excitement. Cold as it was under the enchantment of old Dominion no one seemed to notice. The drinks flowed while the music played. Several fans got up on their fellow shoulders that lead into great times by all! They covered “Save it for a rainy day” by Brad Paisley and nailed it with more people singing along to make it a moment to remember.
Nearing the ending of their set, the hits “Break up with him” and “Song for Another time” was fantastically welcomed. These hits are some of the reasons why Old Dominion is so loved. It is meaningful, relatable music that makes one say “I remember …” The band did a two song encore, “We got it right” and “Wrong turns.” The crowd cheered and the show came to a close even continuing after the band had left the stage. Overall it was an excellent show with great music and happy, satisfied fans.
We were there to capture the night through our lens. Enjoy!
