One of 2018’s biggest buzz bands, Michigan’s Greta Van Fleet, played two nights at the Marquee Theatre September 25 and September 26, spreading love and the sounds of classic rock to sold-out crowds. Singer Josh Kiszka kicked off the show by throwing flowers to the crowd, before kicking into “Highway Tune.” The song takes listeners on a riff ride, not unlike early 1970s rock tunes.
“Edge of Darkness” was the perfect platform to show off Kiszka’s powerful voice. He gestured to the crowd, who ate up every minute of it. Bassist Sam Kiszka took to the keys for the anthemic outburst that leads to “Flower Power.” Only having released a handful of songs, Greta Van Fleet reached into the rock vault to play Howlin’ Wolf’s “Evil” where the blues took hold of the band.
Extended jams sometimes hindered the flow of the show, but Greta Van Fleet showed it lives up to every bit of praise.
