At the Big Easy

Stryper played one hell of a show to a good sized crowd at the Big Easy in downtown Boise, Sunday night. Nothing like 1985, when they were filling up Calvary Chapel churches with smoke and a ton of yellow and black, but they can still play well without all of that and without original bassist Tim Gaines. Stryper, with new bassist Tracy Ferrie, are touring to promote their new release "Reborn."

Las Vegas based 7 Hours Later opened the show and did great, they even had a small pit going. Stryper took the stage with a very downsized drum kit for Robert Sweet, but he made it sound like a five hundred piece set. Oz Fox, now slender and short haired, along with Michael Sweet can make those guitars scream. Tracy Ferrie was pulling off some behind the neck and upside down stuff, and broke out the five-string for a while.

Stryper played the old songs. "Loud and Clear", "Loving You", "Free", "Reach Out" and busted out acoustic versions of "Lady" and "Honestly". The new songs off of "Reborn" sounded better live than on the cd.

The usual throwing of bibles into the audience and people fighting over drumsticks and picks made for a good time, the show ended with "To Hell With The Devil" and Michael Sweet praying with the crowd. Great show, they can still rattle the floor and make your ears ring.
