Gunner Down Brings The Spirit of Rock to Beach Street Halloween Party on 27 October 2012

One of Orlando’s top rock bands, Gunner Down, materialized on Beach Street for a Halloween performance. Unfortunately, Sandy scared a lot of people away, so the street wasn’t crowded.

But the band played on!

Halloween party on Beach Street 2012I don’t think they could have been any better, although the energy from a rock audience often times can push a band a little further. The sound was crisp. The vocal range was impressive. Guitars soared. Drums pounded. Bass thumped. Those in attendance were pumped.

Check out the band online by Googling: Gunner Down Orlando.

I look forward to hearing them again. They brought back partial memories from the 70s and 80s. Maybe then next time I’ll remember a little more.
