Review: Larger Than Life delights at Mulcahy’s, NSYNC’s Joey Fatone hosts (Includes first-hand account)

When he took the stage, Fatone’s appearance was met with a raucous response. “Hello. Welcome to Mulcahy’s! How’s everybody doing tonight. Welcome to 90’s night,” Fatone said. “I feel fucking old. How many people are born in the 90’s? 70’s? Cause I’m 1977.”

continued, “Thank you guys for coming out tonight. I’m excited to be here on Long Island, of course. Long Island is like my second home. We have a great show for you guys.”

“These guys are absolutely amazing,” Fatone said, about Larger Than Life. “How many people remember the 90’s music?” the veteran boy band member inquired.

Larger Than Life took the stage and sang their rocking boy band cover tunes from such artists as Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, Temptations, 98 Degrees (“Because of You”), BBMak (“Back Here”), but the highlight surprise of the night was when Fatone got up on stage with Larger Than Life and sang a nostalgic version of “Bye Bye Bye,” with them, and the crowd went nuts. At that moment, the audience was reliving their childhood, and it was a dream for the boy band cover group to sing with their musical influence, Joey Fatone. They exchanged hugs with Fatone, who in return praised them for their talent. “How great are these guys huh?” Fatone said.

The Verdict

Overall, a great time was had by all at Mulcahy’s, which makes it the quintessential venue for 90’s night on Long Island. Larger Than Life (comprised of Edvin, Chris, Devin, Toly and Price) were at their musical best, and having Joey Fatone host this memorable event was the icing on the cake. Five stars all around.

Dedicated boy band fan Denise Cirolia, who was there with fellow super-fan Loretta Cassidy, remarked, “I couldn’t be more excited for Larger Than Life for last night’s performance! Last night is what dreams are made of for them and for the fans.”

Boy band fan Tiffany Moriarty added, “What I enjoyed most was the look on the boys’ faces when they were on stage with Joey Fatone. They were just having the best time ever, and it was definitely one of the best shows yet!”

Digital Journal reviewed Larger Than Life’s “A Boyband Story” forthcoming documentary.
