The Minus Five played to an enthusiastic crowd at Off Broadway on Friday night, with Magnolia Summer opening the show.

Magnolia Summer consists of a cast of many members from other St. Louis bands. Their newest CD, “The Hill Or The Climb,” is their self-described “rock” album that was released in January 2014. Their sound ties so many other band styles together and makes listening to them enjoyable. Chris Grabau’s voice is spot on against the crunch of the electric guitar chords that sing out rockabilly (in an early Wilco kind of way), while at other times it blends smoothly and speaks in mellow tones of R.E.M. Diversity is the spice of life and Magnolia Summer serves that up nicely.

The Minus 5 brought experience and ease to the stage with a numbing “rock and roll” style, playing the songs of yesterday and keeping them as lively as the day they were conceived. With a long list of songs to choose from, the audience was on standby for each one. The list of people that leader Scott McCaughey has collaborated with over the years is long and impressive, and he is proud to be doing what he does.
