Women swooned and men smiled repeatedly, with the sweet sounds of Tony Lucca and Gabe Dixon filling the Old Rock House Sunday night.

Dixon took to the stage promptly at 8 p.m., and in spite of his quiet speaking voice, he surprised me with his soulful sound and fantastic piano melodies. Almost reminiscent of an old movie, the crowd was quiet, with many sitting on the floor and simply enjoying the music over a cocktail or two. This was one of the first times in a long time I have been so impressed by an opener.

Tony Lucca knows how to work a crowd, and easily brought the audience to its feet, with fans dancing throughout his set. Lucca is well known for appearing on television shows such as "The Mickey Mouse Club," and most recently "The Voice." Although Lucca said he knows these shows are a part of his life, he wants to go beyond them and grow as an artist. What was nice about his set was that, in addition to his originals, he also included some very clever cover songs including one by Bon Iver, "Yesterday" by the Beatles (sung in duet with Dixon) and, most memorably, Jay-Z's "99 Problems" as an encore.

I definitely enjoyed the concert more than I thought I would, and am interested in what both Dixon and Lucca do in the upcoming years.
