Nevada Color may not have made it to Firefly Music Festival this year, but they are well on their way. In Pittsburgh the band is getting the superstar treatment. Screaming girls, herds of photographers, prime opening and headlining slots, these guys are on top of the world, or at least on top of the Theater Square Parking Garage.
Quinn Wirth on lead vocals with Max Kovalchuk on guitar, Chris Cichra on bass, Adam Valen on guitar and Jeremy Westhead on drums played their latest gig on a rooftop for the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership July Rooftop Shindig with the Flow Band followed by the 1975 movie, Jaws.
Wirth greeted fans that crowded the make shift stage, shaking their hands, paying extra attention to the youngsters and pre-teens in attendance . The indie pop crew brought a ton of energy, playing new tunes from their forthcoming EP, and of course slipping in hit single New Mexico from 2014’s Adventure’s Part 2.
“I never thought I would open for a shark,” commented Wirth prior to the showing of the classic film. Nevada Color closed out their rooftop gig with Whistler and Freedom of Letting Go.
The Flow Band kicked off the party, as some played life size chess and connect 4 games while others indulged in food, beer and cocktails.
The Flow band have been on the scene for 23 years with Uzell Finney Jr. the constant member on guitar. Lead vocalist Deborah Starling-Pollard showed off her Jamaican roots on Bob Marley’s Jammin, and spicy side later on with the Caribbean flavored Hot, Hot, Hot. Flow band knows how to loosen up the crowd and had no trouble getting the Nevada Color fans and Jaws fans swaying along to their grooves.
