Live Show - The Zombies

Where: New York City  
Venue: Central Park Summerstage

The Zombies have come along way from 60s pop hits to today’s reincarnation of the classic dynamic British five-piece. Even with just two original members, The Zombies managed to bring the 60s back to Central Park. They entered the SummerStage venue with force playing "I Love You", a Chris White written track that features vocalist Colin Blunstone's amazing and fresh vocal, with grains of years attached to his falsetto.

Blunstone and Rod Argent have a strong relationship on and off the stage. Argent provides splendid keyboard riffs and spectacular solos to go with Steve Rodford's hearty percussion. The setup was rather relaxing and leaned towards progressive rock rather than the general rock/pop and beat The Zombies were originally known for. They played tracks ranging from their second album Being Here to their "new" album from 2011... Breathe In, Breathe Out

It was their 2011 album Breathe In, Breathe Out that received my highest attention. Argent briefly paused between certain songs to talk about the past; before mentioning Dave Grohl's personal likes. I've never seen a band (and an aged one of that) care so much about accolades from Rolling Stone and NME. It was strange, but amusing. 

The Zombies played "Care of Cell 44", "I Want Her She Wants Me" and "This Will Be Our Year" before pulling out the old classic "Time of The Season". It sent the crowd in to raptures, a killer tune as the sun set on New York City. They continued to impress with an Alan Parson Project cover, "Old and Wise". Although The Zombies are a critical influential band from the 60s, they still manage to excite audiences, young and old. Their re-incarnated form played George Gershwin's "Summertime" from their debut album as the final song. The Zombies have youthfulness and skill; this comes a long way in the current age of reformations.

There was ultimately a stark difference between Django Django's dance filled fun and The Zombies simplistic romantic love songs The front row drastically aged by about 40 years by the time Argent and Blunstone came on. This was an experience to say the least. It's a name I can now tick off the long list, but add to the list of flawed reformed bands that are just too old to be doing this as a night time job. It was nice of The Zombies to play for free, and that’s what I’ll remember most about the performance.
