Northfield ,Ohio- The 90’s alternative megahit hit band ( can you still be called alternative if you have major radio hits ? ) Soul Asylum hit Ohio like the storms we are having and they pounded us like a force mejeure . They immediately launched into their first commercial hit “ Somebody to Shove” and didn’t let up for close to 90 minutes . This band has been on my bucket list for some time but thru time and circumstance I was never able to see them perform live and in person . I remember the first time I saw them on Saturday Night Live and said this band is amazing and they have been one of my favorites as well . The band has had personal changes over the years and like any company people come and people go but the music has remained . The founder , lead singer and guitarist Dave Pirner is still the leader and where he plays I will follow . The songs continued with numbers such as “ Shut Down “, “ Just Like Anyone “ and “ Misery “ . The sound was crisp and the lighting display was awe inspiring so I have to give proper recognition to the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park for being a top notch venue . Some of my other favoritie songs of the night were “ Black Gold “ , the megahit “ Runaway Train “ and “ April Fool “ . The band consists of members Dave Pirner on vocals and guitar, Michael Bland on drums , Winston Rowe on bass guitar and Justin Sharbono on lead guitar . To see all that is current with Soul Asylum I recommend you visit the official website at http://www.soulasylum.com/ and I highly suggest you get to see this amazing band live .
