Wantagh - On August 26, The 90's Band performed at Mulcahy's Pub and Concert Hall in Wantagh on Long Island, as part of 90's Night.
They began their set with two back-to-back Blink-182 covers, which included "All the Small Things" and the infectious "What's My Age Again?" Christina paid homage to Britney Spears by singing her breakthrough hit "Baby One More Time," with Phil on backing vocals. "You guys feel like dancing?" Phil asked, and they immediately broke into "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls.
The 90's Band inquired how many people have seen them before live, and they gave away a neat Rugrats T-shirt to a lucky fan in the audience. Phil rocked the guitar and vocals on Gin Blossoms' "Hey Jealousy," as Christina played tambourine. They also tipped their hats to the Long Island-based band Nine Days with their smash hit "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)," where they did the tune justice.
"What's going on Mulcahy's?" Christina asked, and she subsequently handed out nostalgic wrist slappers to several fans. She sang No Doubt's "Just a Girl" and Meredith Brooks' "Bitch," both of which resonated well with the crowd. Phil picked up the pace with the upbeat Goo Goo Dolls song "Slide," and Christina dedicated Shania Twain's "Man! I Feel Like a Woman" to all the girls in the house, which had a feel-good vibe, as yellow lights dimmed from the stage.
Equally laid-back and fun was "Steal My Sunshine" with Phil on lead, and Christina on backing vocals. "I'm just getting started guys," Christina said, and went on to belt out Republica's spitfire "Ready to Go." Phil went on to perform "Flagpole Sitta" by Harvey Danger, and he had the crowd singing along with him on Oasis' "Wonderwall," and he complimented them for being "awesome."
Christina asked the fans for some help as he showcased some angst on Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know." "Who is sick of politics?" Phil asked, and gave away a T-shirt to the section of the venue that screamed the words Pearl Jam the loudest.
Speaking of Pearl Jam, Phil sang their hit song "Better Man," and Christina also paid tribute to them with "Even Flow." They closed their set with a cover of Green Day's "Basket Case," which featured electrifying guitar riffs from Phil.
The Verdict
Overall, The 90's Band did a great job at Mulcahy's Pub and Concert Hall. Phil and Christina get better each time they take the stage, and so do Bobby and Luke from the group. They are like a box of chocolates, where you never know what song they are going to sing next, and they keep their audience on their feet the entire time. Their live show at Mulcahy's earned a "A" rating. Well done.
