FORT PLAIN — Last Wednesday evening, a special concert was held in Haslett Park, Fort Plain, featuring Tongue and Groove, a band that brought down the bandstand with a mix of classic and modern rock covers, performed with bite and swagger.

Although Haslett Park summer concerts usually take place each Thursday evening, Tongue and Groove played Wednesday to make up for their cancelled appearance July 26, which was called off due to severe thunderstorms.

Tongue and Groove’s set was comprised of mostly classic and modern rock covers (with a bit of country and blues mixed in), all instantly recognizable and easy to sing along to, including “I Love Rock and Roll”, “Should I Stay or Should I Go”, “I Want You to Want Me”, and “Brown Eyed Girl”.

It was obvious that the band was having fun during last Wednesday’s show, trading off lead vocals and laughs as they interacted with each other throughout the performance in a way that only bands with members comfortable and familiar with each other are able to do.

The band was actually in such good form, that even a wasp stinging one of the members in the neck during the set’s third song didn’t slow them down. If they hadn’t casually mentioned it after the performance, crowd members wouldn’t have even been aware of what happened, as the band didn’t miss a beat.

Tongue and Groove frequently play throughout New York, and a list of upcoming shows, including one at the Silverado, Herkimer on September 7, and one at Dopp’s Inn, Dolgeville, can be found on the band’s official Facebook page.

On Thursday, Fort Plain’s summer concert series ended with a performance by The Dependents, which consists of Fort Plain High School students, who, just this past May, released their first full length album “Dry Cereal”.
