Chevelle energizes opening night Fair crowd
Bright lights, guttural screams, bug-eyed aliens and familiar chords. These were just a few of the sights and sounds fans experienced as hard rock band Chevelle performed Wednesday on the Chevy Park Stage at the New York State Fair‘s opening night.
Concertgoers were treated to an 80-minute-long set featuring old and new songs, including “deep cut” tracks, as the band favorably put it.
This was not Chevelle’s first time entertaining New York State Fair crowds as the band also took the Chevy Court Stage in 2017.
The band, composed of brothers Pete (vocals and guitar) and Sam Loeffler (drums), and touring bassist Kemble Walters, got the crowd energized immediately by opening with their song, “Verruckt,” off their latest album, NIRATIAS.
With devil horns in the air, fans bobbed their heads to popular hits like “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along),” “Face to the Floor” and “Hunter Eats Hunter.”
The band’s mix of melodic guitar riffs and explosive vocals was enough to get fans out of their seats and along the barricade, inching to get closer to the music.
