Last night, Auckland’s premier live music venue, The Blue Star Tavern, was the place to be for fans of local music. A capacity crowd gathered there to witness a performance by the city’s own rising stars, Blue Train.
Towards the end of the night, the group whipped up an ecstatic buzz when they launched into a rendition of Steve Sherriff’s original composition “Combover Blues”. From the opening drum roll to the final chorus, it was clear from the audience’s delighted reaction that this was something special.
The song itself is a lively offering with plenty of energy, combining swirling keys and a buoyant backbeat. Schorrif on lead vocals expertly handled his lyrical duties, while the band maintained a tight, vibrant groove throughout. His gravelly tone lent itself well to the song, adding warmth and depth to his words even as they cascaded over an ever-changing musical canvas.
This performance served as an excellent showcase not only for Sherrif’s impressive songwriting credentials but also for Blue Train’s deft musicianship and confident stage presence. With such committed musicians in their ranks and great original material to boot, it is clear that this group are destined for more great nights of music here in Auckland and further afield.
For those who weren’t lucky enough to catch the show on this occasion, here’s hoping that we will soon get another chance to experience Blue Train in action – and hopefully “Combover Blues” will be part of their set list!
