Review: FDNY rockers AfterBurn perform at Mulcahy’s, open for Quiet Riot (Includes first-hand account)

A hard rock group, AfterBurn is comprised of Joe Martin Jr., Rich Apps, Matty Chase and Chick Satterly. They shared the stage with The Sweet (whose appearance on this tour marked their solo performance in New York).

AfterBurn kicked off their set at Mulcahy’s with their last year’s single, the mid-tempo “Open Road Confession,” and they went on to perform two additional tunes that will be featured on their upcoming album.

They immediately broke into “Far From Grace,” which had strong melodies to it, as well as the spitfire “Whiskey in the Wound,” featuring their harmonies, and they closed on an unapologetic note with “Excuse My Demons.”

AfterBurn’s music is available on iTunes.

The Verdict

Overall, AfterBurn was able to warm up the stage for Quiet Riot, which was fronted by American Idol alum James Durbin on lead vocals. AfterBurn is worth seeing live whenever they are playing in the area. Their set earned two thumbs up. Well done.
