Review: Taylor Swift Tribute act entertaining at Mulcahy’s in New York (Includes first-hand account)

“Are you ready to have a good time tonight?” she asked, and immediately broke into her opening song “Welcome to New York,” which was appropriate for her Mulcahy’s audience.

“How are you guys doing out there?” she asked. “We are just getting started,” she added, and went into “New Romantics,” as purple lights dimmed from the stage.

This marks her first time in New York. Scarborough flew in from South Carolina, and she noted that the crowd is making her feel “very welcome.” She continued with “Blank Space” and “I Know Places,” prior to singing “I Knew You Were Trouble,” where she really immersed herself in the conscience of the global music star.

“Thank you. Are you guys having fun?” she asked. It was followed by “I Wish You Would,” where pine green lights graced the stage, and she showed her sassy side on “How You Get the Girl,” where fans were dancing along.

She shared that she has a few things up her sleeve and underwent a costume stage, as electronic dance music played in the background, which included “Closer” by The Chainsmokers and Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For.”

Dressed in a white outfit, she returned to sing the spitfire tune “Bad Blood,” and inquired if the fans like her new outfit, where the answer was a resounding “yes.” She praised Mulcahy’s for being a place that “never goes out of style,” and immediately broke into “Style.” “You guys sound beautiful,” she complimented the audience.

It was followed by “Wildest Dreams,” which had a mellifluous ending, and “All You Had To Do Was Stay.” She took the fans back to the “Red” era by having them sing along with her on “22,” as they were clapping along and shaking their hips, as well as “Red” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”

After one final outfit change, she concluded “Let’s finish it up right here, right now,” and that consisted of “Out of the Woods,” where she showcased her impressive range as she hit the high notes, and the sassy “Shake It Off,” where she went in the crowd and sang along with them.

The Verdict

Overall, Elizabeth Scarborough put on a pleasant performance as Taylor Swift at Mulcahy’s Pub and Concert Hall. Her show was fun and entertaining, and she looked and sounded exactly like the real Taylor Swift. Her bubbly personality was evident throughout her set.
