Tim Hicks and his bandmates put on an “AMAZING” concert at the CNE Bandshell Stage on Aug 20!!!
This was the best band that I have ever had the luck to see and hear performing at the CNE Bandshell Stage! Tim Hicks and his boys know how to entertain!
I was apprehensive about shooting this concert. Tim Hicks is supposed to play on Country Music Radio Stations. Little did I know. This was “not” a Johnny Cash type of Country Music. Tim Hicks is as a good a Rock Band as they are a Country Band.
Superb Guitar solos. Their Bass Player is an extraordinary showman. Tim has a powerful voice and easily worked the audience.
Their Drummer pounded out the beat. Seriously great muscians.
I am not a Country Music fan, but I really enjoyed the Tim Hicks concert. Great to listen to. Fun to watch their performance.
The only stupid beef that I had, was with Tim’s baseball cap. The front brim would cast a shadow on his face…
Tim Hicks closed the show with multiple blasts from assorted Dry Ice funnels. They blasted funnels of fog onto the stage. Really neat effect. Wish that I had brought two cameras with a wide angle zoom on it. Hard to capture a full stage with a long lens.
Because of the Tim Hicks concert, I plan on buying a video camera in the near future. Video is great when something spectacular happens. I would have loved to have captured their closing song on video. Heck the whole Tim Hicks concert would have been great to capture on video.
Tim Hicks spoke about playing for a long period as the “house band” in a Toronto bar. These guys are ready for the “big time”. Superb players who also have a great visual performance. Concerts are about “BOTH” sight and sound. Tim Hicks and his band knows about that, in spades.
