Niagara Falls rockers High Horse performed on Free Music Fridays at the Hard Rock Cafe.

High Horse

A music lover can go out in most any city on any given night and find a plethora of bands performing “classic rock” music; but most of these “classic rock” bands have a very limited song list that features the biggest hits from some of the biggest artists...usually post 1980. This is not the case with the Niagara Falls band High Horse.

While the four piece band perform the hit songs by artists from decades past, they also performed some very recognizable lesser hits by those same artists. High Horse kicked off the December edition of Free Music Fridays at the Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls when they hit the stage on December 4.

Performing the music of Stevie Wonder, Chicago, Bill Withers, Billy Preston, Paul McCartney and Wings, Todd Rundgren, the Beatles, Steely Dan, James Taylor, and Eric Clapton., High Horse took fans back to the days when rock and roll ruled the radio airwaves.

Playing two sets Peter, Chuck, Eli, and Sandy did much more than just play a few songs; with no specific set list the guys went with what felt right and offered the occasional album cut and featured solo performances. The night's entertainment did not include any REO Speedwagon or the obligatory “Freebird” request; but it did feature “Bad Love”, “I'm a Man”, “The Letter”, “Superstition”, “Let it Go Round in Circles”, “Do it Again”, “Use Me Up”, “Ain't No Sunshine”, “Pretzel Logic”, “Fire and Rain”, “Jet”, “Hello it's Me”, and a Beatles set with “Blackbird”, “Tax Man”, “A Day in the Life”, and “Something in the Way She Moves”.

The night may have begun fraught with technical difficulties; but after a little repair work, the room was filled with the sounds of good ole rock and roll the way it should be played.
