“Alternative rocker and occasional cover vocalist, Lou Evans performed last Thursday at the Stage Bar and Grill.
Lou Evans and his acoustic guitar stood solo on stage playing to a pre-inebriated, small crowd… Evans’ storytelling approach and skill in conveying emotion was heard and seen in the covers and original songs he co-composed with bandmate, Jake Chaplin. Evans’ version of the Foo Fighters’ “Everlong” was gritty and the vocals were brisk. His musicianship was evident causing the audience to forget that only one man was playing the music. Yet somehow, a definite drum beat was heard as well as the interweaving of complicated chords and simplified, honest vocals. Evans demonstrated versatility on his rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing.” The instrumentation was alternative in style keeping true to Evans’ roots, however, the vocal gymnastics that reached falsetto registers in the song were impressive and could rival pop superstars like Justin Timberlake.”
