Songs from 'Back in the Day' thrill crowd at Concert Series

Posted

Back in the Day, an international touring rock n’ roll tribute band from Boston, played to a packed crowd during the Bristol Fourth of July Concert Series at Independence Park on a beautiful Friday, July 1,  evening. The five peice band featuring lead vocalist Scott Cooper, Amos San Filippo on guitar, Brian Johnson on drums, TJ Nowicki on keyboards and Tom Walason on bass, jammed through 80’s hits from Journey, Bon Jovi, Foreigner, Styx, Def Leppard and Van Halen. Cooper had a solid vocal range and a fun personality that ignited the crowd who couldn’t get close enough as they stood cheering from in front of the stage.
San Filippo killed it on guitar especially through a series of Van Halen selections that they played mid way through the set.
The New Bedford based Redhanded Band played the early set with selections from Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Whitney Houston, Maroon 5 and Arianna Grande.
