Skeeter Creek opens Alive at Five Show 
Members enjoy riding tide of local success
By Jim Shahen Jr. Times Union, Thursday, July 28, 2016
 
"It's kind of crazy," Skeeter Creek guitarist Joe Kulewicz said while reflecting on his band's rise from the talent show circuit to becoming one of the Capital Region's premier live acts. "We've done a lot of opening spots, had great exposure and gotten to play for some big crowds."
 
Skeeter Creek's busy summer schedule of shows takes the top-40 country cover band to Alive at Five on Thursday, opening for ascendant country duo LoCash. The gig is another in the band's sturdy legacy as a support act for many of the genre's biggest names over the years,

Local country and cover band Skeeter Creek was plucked from playing a preshow street festival in front of the arena to open the show…Skeeter Creek did the Capital Region proud with covers of tunes by Miranda Lambert, Randy Houser and The Band Perry. They ended with a playful, funny version of Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl (Shake It for Me)” that interpolated Wild Cherry’s “Play that Funky Music” (with the titled tweaked to replace “funky” with “country”) and Aerosmith’s “Walk this Way.”

Amazing time tonight and you guys sounded GREAT! (As usual!) THANK YOU!

 

I went to see this band at the request of my niece and nephew. Being a old time metal head,

I'll admit I'm not a big Country music fan, BUT, these guys are (for lack of a better term)

AWESOME! From their stage antics to their audience interaction,

they kept my full attention and got my enthusiastic applause.

All in all, this band deserves every country music fan's support.

They put on one hell of a show! From me personally, guys you're the best band I've seen in years,

and I very much look forward to seeing your show! The next time I'm out and about,

 I will CERTAINLY recommend you to all my music friends! Peace and love to you all, keep rockin people!

Some of the fan reviews from the show....

"The opening act was Superb. Enough of the younger music to make sure all were well entertained no matter what your age! "

"Opening act was great looking forward to hearing them again"

"It was a fantastic show. The warm-up band 'Skeeter Creek' did a remarkable show. Sounds just like the real artists. Couldn't have done any better."

"Skeeter Creek band - Sounded great!"

"The opening act Skeeter Creek was amazing as well! Not too many time you got to a show with a local act that is any good, but these guys really brought the house down. Great original songs and the perfect cover tunes. Kudos."
