Chuck Ragan’s Ragan’s Honest And Emotional Vocal Delivery Rocks The Stone Pony Chuck Ragan and the Camaraderie provided support for The Gaslight Anthem In Asbury Park
ASBURY PARK, NJ-
“… Chuck Ragan and the Camaraderie provided support for this show, and actually toured with GLA in 2010. Ragan’s roots in the punk scene date back to 1993 in Gainesville Florida with Hot Water Music but is currently straddling genre’s as a folk punk artist. Ragan’s latest album (live) with the Camaraderie The Winter Haul was released in 2016 via Ten Four Records.
Chuck and the Camaraderie took the stage to “Something May Catch Fire” giving a shot of adrenaline to the crowd at the Pony, the fiddle play of Jon Gaunt setting the pace with Ragan strumming away on the acoustic guitar and the whole band being in great form. The set continued with “Vegabond” and “Flame in the Flood” showcasing smooth slide guitar work and Ragan’s honest and emotional vocal delivery. Ragan who sometimes tours solo really shines when playing with his full band, adding a bluegrass, soulful sound that lends well to his husky vocals and meaningful lyrics.
With the crowd at the Pony finding its rhythm Chuck Ragan and the Camaraderie began winding down their set finishing with “California Burrito” off the Feast or Famine album, a fast-paced folk song with bluegrass harmonies and dominant fiddle on the backside.
Chuck and the Camaraderie played a twelve-song set and clearly laid the foundation for a night of great music …”
