As St. Patrick’s Day festivities continued around the city, a party erupted at the Trocadero Saturday night.

Philadelphia blues/ country rock band The Cold Roses played a short but energetic set, part of a show presented by Praying Mantis Entertainment that featured Path Of Motion, Lions Club, Under Red Lights and Red Letter Life.

After entering the stage wearing a pair of Rayban Wayfarer sunglasses, lead singer, guitarist and occasional harmonica player Rob Clancy brought life to the crowd through an engaged and animated performance.

With Jamie Brigs on drums, Brandon Porter on bass guitar and Steve Lynn on guitar, Cold Roses played a stomping set including such songs as “Got No Lovin,” “After Midnight,” “Let Me Go’” and “If I ever Loved a Woman.”

They also played a few new, unrecorded songs, including “Ordinary Friend” and “Loose that Man.”

The Cold Roses have been aggressive in writing music and playing gigs wherever possible. Formed in late 2010, the band has made its rounds in the Philly music scene with shows at Kung-Fu Necktie, North Star and The Legendary Dobbs.

Between songs, Clancy announced that the band would be headed to Atlanta in a few weeks to record their first EP.
