Hit the Spot: Knee Deep at Manny’s Place
Manny’s Place hosts many of the greatest bands in the city; with a top-notch sound system, a flashback inducing light setup and plenty of space to get your groove on while the entertainers entertain; there’s no shortage of talent taking the stage. Manny designed his Place to cater to live music, and his attention to detail shows.
Knee Deep proceeded to play a plethora of prime picks from the 1990’s, with just enough modern hits mixed in to keep the party going all night long.
They say if you remember the 90’s, you probably smoked sh**ty weed. Regardless of whether or not you recall the 90’s (or were even born yet, you young whipper-snappers) the undeniable truth is that a lot of wicked music came out of that particular era. Whether it was grunge, alternative rock, punk rock or hip-hop, the 90’s were a time when some of the greatest songs ever were presented to our eager ears by bands who transformed the music scene.
How doth one of the modern era go forth and enjoy the live experience of such a wide selection of great music? Knee Deep is the answer.
(bonus question: where in the world is Carmen Santiago?*)
Knee Deep took to the stage with a fervor and proceeded to burn the damn building down.
(metaphorically burned it down: no Colborne Street insurance “accidents” here).
Singer Eric Mills brought a raw intensity that rode magnificently upon duel guitarists Jay Cutaia and JM Singaram’s pure power, with Vinnie Milosevich’s precision percussion and Chris Kowalsky’s deep melodic bass providing the perfect stream to keep the flow flowing and the crowd dancing.
The musicians of Knee Deep have a deep rooted respect for music and it shine’s through in their cut-for-cut reproduction of great songs such as Lenny Kravitz’ Are You Gonna Go My Way, Finger 11’s Paralyzer or The Clash’s London Calling.
Knee Deep in talent and head over heels in love with playing awesome live music to entertain the people. But don’t take my word for it, check out their facebook, their ReverbNation page, or just get off your keister and watch Knee Deep live the next time they take the stage in a venue near you.
Head over to BrantfordBands facebook page for some more great shots of the band captured on film
(hah, film, there’s a pain in the rear we’ll never have to deal with again).
Carmen Sandiago was a 90’s computer game that branched into a series of books, game shows, tv shows, movies and board games. The theme to “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiago” was particularly catchy. To learn more
