Jesse Roper (Opener for Big Wreck)
Having no idea who this artist is, I could only hope for the best. Jesse’s playing was on fire, and from what I could see, the crowd loved him. It only took one song for me to say that I enjoyed his tunes.
This was Big Wrecks 20th-anniversary tour, and it was a solid show performed at the Commodore Ballroom. I noticed a few key hit songs were missing like “Ghosts” and wished they could have covered more.
There was a heavy presence of an older crowd there and it was a sold-out house. The minute the lights went down, the crowd went crazy looking forward to the show.
The Band, originating from the Boston Massachusetts area, the first album In Loving Memory Of was released in 1994. Most of the band’s successes came from the Canadian single song charts than the American charts.
Playing such hits as “Another Brick in the Wall” as well as their new single “A Good Piece of Me”
Over 20 Years, with all of their great hits, Big Wreck has built up a huge following. The band did have a slight pause in 2002 – 2010; however, the band looks like it hasn’t changed one bit. The band was on fire and even surprised them with an encore, leaving the fans wanting more. Other than a hot night being surrounded by fans in the Commodore Ballroom, it was a good night had by all.
