Ninety Percent 90s @ Gennaro’s 11/10/12
Review by Sunny Holliday; Pictures by Alan Sperry
Sometimes it’s nice to just go to a local joint like Gennaro’s on Saturday night for pizza and a three man acoustic band like Ninety Percent 90’s. The Nineties were a good time for me, and hearing songs like Shine by Collective Soul and Head Over Feet by Alanis Morisette have a way of bringing me right back to my college days. The band consisting of Tony, Scotty, and Davey were a good team with two guitars and one box drum/suitcase player. Considering the fact that the last time I saw the lead singer he was screaming with Nemesys, this time he could more effectively demonstrate his talent on both the guitar and through vocals. They had a cool idea of letting the audience pick their songs for $1 each and had a pretty extensive list to choose from which included many genres. With choices like Creed, Savage Garden and Blind Melon, they had a little something for everyone. If you’re in the mood for some 90’s songs and are also wanting a sit-down venue you should check them out and like Ninety Percent 90s on facebook. Although it reminded me of a cross between a piano bar and a very good Karaoke night, I would definitely go see them again; especially at Gennarro’s on Broadway. Yum!
Ninety Percent 90s is Anthony Hamilton (Nemesys), Scott Uhl (Glass Delirium), and David Roy Bartlett (The Campfire Vendetta & Gravity Lies); a bunch of talented guys from different bands coming together in name of rocking some 90′s tunes.
