Derek Day @ El Cid, Los Angeles – 9/23/17
Sheri Hastings was On Scene and Heard…
Derek Day, fresh off his opening slot on Ted Nugent’s East Coast tour, which included a few select West Coast dates, is once again proving that he’s a force of nature to be reckoned with for sure!
His 45 minute set was filled with all original tunes, with the exception of “Benny & the Jets” by Elton John, which he puts his own unique spin on. Derek is one of the most animated, charismatic and humble up & coming performers today. His energy needs to be bottled & sold! His vocals are spot on and his guitar playing…? Well, that’s why we’re all here in the first place. At times it’s almost impossible to snap a photo of him. He never stands still for very long & utilizes every single inch of the stage. Needless to say, he’s VERY entertaining to watch.
Derek also seems to have found the right combination of musicians to compliment him. He is joined by bassist, Steaks Lyons and Tosha Jones who beats the crap out of her drums. Deservedly so, Tosha is now endorsed by Vater Drumsticks.
I highly recommend checking out Derek and crew when they’re at a venue near you.
