Roots rocker JD McPherson treated Rochester to two nights of foot stomping tunes. Playing the second of two sold out shows at Abilene Bar & Lounge, McPherson takes things back to the roots of rock and roll. Backed by a band brimming with raw talent, McPherson wooed the enthusiastic crowd with songs like, “Fire Bug”, “Dimes For Nickels” and “North Side Gal”.
Abilene was busting at the seams with adoring Rockabilly fans holding records to be signed and singing along to every song. Special guest Sean Rowe joined the band singing and playing guitar and bringing the already thrilled crowd even more excitement. McPherson’s fierce blend of rock and roll and blues had the crowd bouncing from start to finish. McPherson closed both nights with “Wolf Teeth” to the crowds delight.
