Mercury recording artist Easton Corbin and his six (6) piece band played the Rapids Theater to a warm 700 plus crowd. After seeing him perform at the Taste of Country with three (3) other artists this summer, I thought he was the highlight of the evening. It was cool to see him on his own and with his own production inside one of the crown jewels for live entertainment in the Western New York area.
Easton came out to the sound of screaming girls and kicked into The Way Love Looks. He is currently working on new material, as he mentioned later in the set, but the fans who did attend the show last Saturday night are still eager to here the songs off of his self titled debut album. Easton donned either an acoustic or electric guitar for most of the evening but did sing the majority of A Lot to Learn about Living without either. His fiddle player, Jason, picked up the cowbell and gave it a good run for this song as well. His love for George Strait was shown as he did a collection of songs for his encore that were written by one of the most famous men in country music. At the end of the night, Easton jumped into the pit, as the band continued to play, to sign autographs for his fans.
Back to Back Entertainment seems to have a knack of booking artists right before they hit the big time, such as Eric Church or The Band Perry for example. Seeing Easton Corbins polished performance, it seems like the streak may continue.
