HEART-NIGHT AT SKY CHURCH DVD-“Hip, relevant and vital” REVIEW BY JOHN EMMS

Night at Sky Church Heart’s latest dvd release shows a lean and clean band ready to eat up anything in it’s path. The first evidence of this is when the group launches into a hip and stunning version of Straight On three songs into this dvd set.

This is quickly  followed by a mezmerizing groove of Love Alive, the concert fave Mistral Wind and a balls out version of WTF from their latest cd Red Velvet Car

Hell, if you watched this year’s god awful performance of The Black Eyed Peas at the Super Bowl halftime show the first thing that strikes you about this dvd is  “holy shit this is what  a real band sounds like’

This is  good news if your thinking of checking out the band as they rock  towns and cities across Canada on the Heart Comes Home tour 2011 currently underway. 

What’s also important to note is that on this particular dvd the sisters have one hell of an “organic’ band.

 In fact, all through this dvd drummer Ben Smith is a force of groove and dynamics. Elsewhere bassist Kristian Attard, keyboard player Debbie Shair and in particular the dynamic fret work of guitarist Craig Bartock is a joy to behold. They just smoke!!!

The band’s new material is very strong. Songs like Safronia’s Mark, the gorgeous Red Velvet Car and the encore Sand bring a whole new dimension to the core songlist. These songs are that good

Alison Krauss (These Dreams of You) and producer Ben Mink make cameos on the dvd and their playing is intuitive and on the mark

However in the end it is the Wilson’s willingness to give of themselves to each other and to their audience that makes this show so special.

35 years after Dremaboat Annie was released Heart prove with Night At Sky Church that great muscianship never goes out style

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist, radio show host http://emms.podbean.com/ and musician www.theshaftmen.com

This dvd is available February 15th 2011 from Eagle Rock Entertainment
