On May 24th, 2014; music lovers of all demographics came from all throughout the GTA to celebrate the opening weekend of the Oshawa Music Hall (formerly The Marquee). Kicking off the first rock show of the venue’s existence were Kingston rockers The Glorious Sons, who were supported by 20 Amp Soundchild, Streetlight Social and The Colts.

The first band to hit the stage were Oshawa rock n roll celebs, The Colts. They won the crowd over in no time with their powerful sound and prominent stage presence. Fans were headbanging and dancing their way through the doors as they arrived; it will be no time at all until these guys are headlining Oshawa’s latest live-music home.

Up next the time came for Toronto’s Mumford & Sons… I mean Streetlight Social. These folk rockers brought the upright bass and banjo vibes to the stage, and in return the crowd danced and partied along to their tunes. Streetlight made for a unique and fitting opener to this strong and fun local line-up.

Pickering’s 20 Amp Soundchild kept the momentum going as they invaded with their upbeat and fun indie-rock sound. It became apparent pretty quickly that a lot of the crowd were stoked to catch their set. These guys have it all; a cool style, powerful sound, over-powering stage presence, and the ability to write some awesome tracks. Oshawa will be able to catch 20 Amp down the street at the Mustache Club on June 21st as they open up for Die Mannequin.

Finally after more fans piled into the hot and loving venue, the time came for The Glorious Sons to take over. The love these guys received from the crowd would definitely stroke anyone’s ego. Fans were going wild; girls were screeching, guys were fighting (obviously because they couldn’t handle the intensity of their sound), and everyone was singing and moving to the music.

Opening up with “Ruby”, the break-down near the end of the track brought an intense rush through the room that gave you goosebumps. These guys bring it. It came as no surprise to see the crowd freak out when the time came for them to play their radio hits “White Noise” and “Mama”.

Oshawa should be pretty damn stoked with the arrival of the Music Hall. The potential is there and the music scene is strong. All in all, fans left the night feeling proud, excited and hopeful of a future of awesome rock n roll and good vibes all around.
