Rusted Root casually took the stage and rocked the Crystal Bay Casino Crown Room on Oct. 30.
With a packed house of witches and goblins, scarecrows and clowns, and whether dressed on Hallow’s Eve or not, all who were there, indeed were having a great time.
Rusted Root’s sound is unique, though so familiar, that it’s magic.
Michael Glabicki’s vocals alone or combined with the vocals of Liz Berlin and Patrick Norman, woo the crowd and at the same time, get your feet moving, then the body swaying and then the full on dancing. “Suspicious Minds,” a song made famous by Elvis Presley, had everybody singing and dancing and appreciating every word, every note.
Rusted Root blends acoustic rock with world music and paints quite the musical landscape. It has sold millions of albums worldwide since 1994, and there is talk of a new album in the works. The band played one long set with a three-song encore, the crowd singing along with “Send Me on My Way,” which was played with so much love and it poured onto every single person in that room. “Back to the Earth” seemed such a wonderful way to end the show.
