On July 23, the Warped Tour Band performed at Mulcahy’s Pub and Concert Hall for a good turnout for a fun punk and emo night. Digital Journal has the recap.
This tribute group is made up of Anthony Scarfuto on vocals, Steve Como on lead guitar, Lou Peragine on rhythm guitar, Gary Cayton on bass and Nick Rice on drums.
DJ Mike Savage was able to warm up the stage for them. After a few verses from Lou Peragine singing “Con Te Partiro”, they officially launched their set with the very energetic “Sugar, We’re Goin Down” from Fall Out Boy, and they had fun with the uptempo “Check Yes Juliette” and panic! at Disco’s “I Write Sins Not Tragedies” with its eye-catching hooks.
Audiences were really drawn to All Time Low’s “Dear Maria, Count Me In” and Good Charlotte’s anthem “Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous”. Anthony Scarfuto sang hit after hit emo all night long, while Gary rocked the rising harmonies and bass guitar. Nick Rice has proven himself to be one of the loudest and most charismatic drummers out there.
Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue” was one of this journalist’s favorite songs of the night along with “Dirty Little Secrets” by The All-American Rejects.
Of course, no Warped Tour Band show is complete without Blink-182, and they performed on “All the Small Things” and “Dammit”.
Overall, the Warped Tour Band had a blast at the Mulcahy Pub and Concert Hall, and their adrenaline-pumping set was well received by all. Anthony Scarfuto’s lead voice was reminiscent of Billie Joe Armstrong and Pete Wentz. Their show had a nostalgic vibe, which made fans and listeners alike remember the real “Warped Tour”.
The Mulcahys audience sang and jumped with them all night. Their live show was rated 4.5 out of 5 stars. Well done.
