Events Center - Seneca-Niagara Casino
Niagara Falls, NY 10-27-07
By Bob Silvestri

With their halcyon days as influential hit makers somewhat behind them, David Crosby and Graham Nash half of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, are still a formidable duo in concert. They brought their latest tour to the sold out Events Center at The Seneca-Niagara Casino in Niagara Falls, NY on October 27, 2007. The glue here is Nash who also seemed to perform the same duties with CSNY who brings a light hearted touch with his music while his partner Crosby has a more serious and political perspective to his songs. This was the last night of their tour and the band seemed in good spirits and eager to put on a good show. While they played many of their hits from their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame career this was no nostalgic show with a couple of newer songs thrown in as well. As a matter of fact the newer songs (Lay Me Down and Jesus in Rio) added a fresh sound to their timeless harmonies with the addition of Crosby's son James Raymond on keyboards. The band also featured one of the best guitarists in the world in Dean Parks. Parks is not known to frequent the road often as he is such a sought after session artist. His solos were spellbinding and the close up shots of his hands on the video screens allowed you to watch his mastery up close. This was evident on the songs "Déjà Vu", "Long Time Coming", "Almost Cut My Hair" and "Wooden Ships". Other stalwart performances included "Guinnevere", "Just a Song before I Go" and "Wasted on the Way". Crowd favorites included "Marrakesh Express", "Winchester Cathedral", "Our House" and the encore "Teach Your Children". The last two mentioned songs also featured the now obligatory audience sing a long. (Yawn) For more upcoming show at The Seneca-Niagara Casino go to www.senecaniagaracasino.com
