URIAH_HEEP_GUYS_MARCH_1_2015_.jpg
What can one say about Uriah Heap, one of the seminal defining rock bands from the ‘60s and ‘70s???As songkick.com expresses it, “You do not go as far as Uriah Heep has on a lack of talent. Their shows are classic rock shows. Smoke rises from the stage, the drummer is on a pedestal, and the singer is up front and center belting out tunes expertly with a distinctly seventies and eighties voice… This was rock then and they still put on a spectacular show….” This powerhouse band will be in concert at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Sunday, March 1, at 8 p.m. playing their favorite chart-toppers from their debut album Very ‘Eavy…Very ‘Umble, which marked a milestone in Hard Rock history.
