McConnell Turns a New Page
Last night Page McConnell played his first proper solo club gig at New Yorks Gramercy Theatre. In addition to the keyboardist, McConnells band includes Spam Allstars guitarist Adam Zimmon, keyboardist/guitarist Jared Slomoff, bassist Rob O’Dea, and drummer Gabe Jarrett. The quintet opened its show with Back In the Basement and ran through a number of tracks off Page McConnell, including Runaway Bride, Maid Marion, Heavy Rotation, The Complex Wind, Rules I Don’t Know, Close to Home, and Beauty of a Broken Heart. For his encore McConnell offered a solo version of Phishs Strange Design and a full band take on Everyone But Me. By the end of the evening McConnell had performed his new album in its entirety.
McConnell will open his solo tour May 30 at South Burlington, VT’s Higher Ground
