Tria Storms into Downtown Plymouth

April 9, 2012

Music & Entertainment

This past Saturday night, I had the pleasure of making my way to downtown Plymouth and Leon’s Place on Court Street. When you walk in there it doesn’t seem like much as it’s a small place with not much¬†room to move around. However, when you add in a lively crowd and and even livelier band such as Tria, the energy rivals that of any larger venue. The waitstaff was fantastic and they were having just as much fun as the crowd they were serving.

This was my first time seeing Tria. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was certainly not disappointed. Tria has energy to spare and they leave it all out on stage. They are a full force, in-your-face band that makes you want to just let it all hang out. The guitar and vocal duties are shared depending on the song by Billy Mahoney and Steven North. Laying down a rich, thundering bass line is Don Melanson and backing it all up keeping the driving¬†tempo going on drums is Steve Canney.

Some of the songs they cover are “Sex Type Thing” by Stone Temple Pilots, “Rock Steady” by Bad Company, “Animal” by Pearl Jam and “Check my Brain” by Alice in Chains. Throw in a little “Talk Dirty to Me” by Poison and “My Kinda Lover” by Billy Squire and they have a set list that will get any party going full steam ahead. What I basically took out of this show is that they are there to rock the house, have fun doing it and bring everyone there along for the ride.
