Wantagh - On May 19, Fleetwood Macked, the acclaimed Fleetwood Mac tribute group, performed at Mulcahy's Pub and Concert Hall in Wantagh.
They opened for boy band tribute act Larger Than Life, and all-girl group Sugar & Spice.
Fleetwood Macked kicked off their set with "The Chain" and it was followed by "You Make Loving Fun" and the perennial classic "Dreams." After "Second Hand News," they immediately broke into another fan-favorite tune "Rhiannon" and they had the audience dancing along with them on "Stop Dragging My Heart Around." Hillary Epstein's vocals were lilting and pure as the driven snow.
Esptein went on to give a special shout-out to this journalist, whom she dubbed as "one of the best journalists of Long Island," which was really sweet on her part. They continued with such noteworthy tunes as "I Don't Want to Know," the Lindsey Buckingham-penned "Monday Morning" and the Christine McVie-penned "Say You Love Me."
One of the most moving segments in their set was when Epstein dedicated "Landslide," in memory of the late Soundgarden front-man Chris Cornell, and she delivered a delicate rendition of the song, accompanied solely by her guitar player.
"Who remembers the 80's?" she asked, and they took their fans on a trip down memory lane to the desert where Fleetwood Mac's "Hold Me" music video was filmed. They also dusted off "Gypsy" and "Gold Dust Woman," and made both songs sound fresh again.
In "Silver Springs," purple and yellow lights dimmed from the Mulcahy's stage, and they serenaded fans to the upbeat hits "Go Your Own Way" and "Don't Stop." She closed with a soaring version of Stevie Nicks' "Edge of Seventeen."
The Verdict
Overall, Fleetwood Macked delivered yet again at Mulcahy's. The entire band shined as a whole, and Epstein really got into the conscience of Stevie Nicks, where she was able to tell the stories behind some of the band's greatest hits. She also had the mannerisms, looks and outfits to the tee, and she sang with grace. They did a superb job tipping their hats to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band: Fleetwood Mac. Their tribute to Chris Cornell was an added treat. Their live show garnered an A rating.
Most recently, Digital Journal listed Hillary Epstein as one of the "Top six female singers from Long Island."
