Getting The Silent Treatment
By: Dee Miyamura
It was a cold, rainy night in Los Angeles, California; and all but the very brave, or the very foolish, or the very dedicated rocker, were warm and dry in their homes. It is Friday night, February 5, 2010; and this intrepid reporter, along with photo-artist extraordinaire Mary L. Hines of Proud Dog Productions, entered into the fray of The Viper Room on The Sunset Trip.
Following the hugely popular, Run Devin Run, is Silent Treatment. The lead singer is Dave Rosales, who also plays rhythm guitar. Steve Abel is the excellent bass player. Jerry Wu is THE lead guitarist. The drums are handled by Rico Esparza.
Those of us, who braved the elements to see ST, were rewarded by one of their finest performances!!
Rosales danced with his unique style: stepping, hopping, and spinning, with or without his guitar. His trademark locks spinning just as fast. Dave’s strong, clear vocals can go from rock to just a little bit bluesy.
Jerry Wu really lets his fingers do the walking as his guitar screams that hard rock and roll anthem. Impressing the audience with confidence and amazing ability!
Abel in the confidence and amazing ability category cannot be ignored! The deep thumping sound of his base is felt within ones’ soul.
Rico Esparza is keeping the beat on the drums. He plays with such enthusiasm and outgoing charisma!
ST performed songs from their new CD, “New American Dream”, which included some of my own personal favorites. “My Friends”, “Fear”, “Some Other Way”, and “Steal The Sun”, just to name a few. The crowd sang and danced and screamed, through the set and left wanting more!
