Gold City with Jerry Pelfrey

September 26, 2011 By: Aaron Category: Gold City, SG Artists, SG Music, Youtube

Youtube user bigdrummer21 has put up a couple of videos of one of Jerry Pelfrey’s first concerts as lead singer for Gold City (hat tip, jdsumner):



Though the videos are certainly not pristine quality, these offer a glimpse into the potential of this lineup. I noticed that Pelfrey’s stage presence is already strong, and will only get better the longer he’s with the group. I can already hear the Ivan Parker similarity in his voice as well. I’m looking forward to hearing them for myself in a couple of weeks.

  1. They need Joe Bonsall, or someone like him to amp up their stage presence. Tim bottoms it out on “Blest,” and the only attention he gets from the other three is a glance.

  2. I have known Pelfrey for several years. Give him time a little time to adjust and he will blow your socks off! He is an incredible vocalist with an incredible range, impressive stage presence & and Parkeresque sound! Gold City could not have made a better choice!

    • I’ve heard Jerry is a powerhouse, so I’m looking forward to what he brings to the table once he gets more comfortable. I’m actually seeing the group next weekend, so I’m interested to hear how he sounds for myself.

  3. My jaw drops from way out in the audience. I can’t imagine what it must be like on stage. How do you ever get used to that to the point that your reaction is “whatever?”
