5 stars 6.24.17 I had the pleasure of witnessing Cell15 live. Now I am not a writer, musician or related in anyway to music other than being a fan. But today was also special because it was a memory for my 2 daughter's. I have been inducted into CLUB C. Window is closing so a memory had to be made. Now to the show. From the opening bell I was more impressed by the soul of this relatively new band then I was listening to a digi download. Bob Richardson, the founder, guitarist Shane Jones, drums,Kevin Thomas and former EoS bass man Dan McDonald round out what I believe is a power stroke of pure wizardry. I will say the most emotional track by any means is Manny's Gone Home. Being Ill has it's downs and few ups and the 1st time I heard this track it had my 57 yr old behind in tears. It was felt the same way by my oldest daughter as we were 'bawling bookends' at our table. Let's step back to chapter one, if you're a keyboard guy this is driven with a force that needs to be recognized. The entire set was an experience I for one shall never forget, the music, the outpouring of a soul, precise guitar playing and an intense McDonald who plays with as I had said to him with anger. Poor strings had their ass handled. Power keys and the recognizing my daughter's birthdays will live within me for what time I have left. Two new songs were introduced as well and I wonder if I'll get to hear a 2nd CD. Hard driven rock with a progressive lining, how can you go wrong. The only downside to today was they didn't play enough. A concept album should be heard in its entirety to make any real sense. I am only a fan as I had said and I am certainly be fan of this outfit. Look for them on band camp and maybe CD baby but good luck in getting a hard copy. I'll end by saying thank you to a group of hospitable fellas and in particular to Bob, who is responsible for a 5 star listen and putting the right guys in the right places'.

This may not or is not a true review but it is a factual account of an experience
