Here are some pictures from Thursday (July 15), the first day of the third concert weekend of the PA Roundhouse Rally at Roundhouse Harley-Davidson near Duncansville.
This Roundhouse weekend built up excitement through all three days, leading to the climactic closing moments on Saturday night as a winner’s name was drawn for the Harley-Davidson Low Rider motorcycle being given away by the PA Roundhouse Rally!
Thursday had its excitement, though, as Altoona native Jimmy Mowery and his group, The New High, played an exciting set of many of his original songs plus a few popular covers. A contestant who advanced through several stages of Season 16 of NBC Television’s “The Voice,” Jimmy and The New High blended power pop, rock, punk, alternative and hip-hop flavors into a smooth-sounding, energetic mixture. Opening with their take on Third Eye Blind’s “Semi-Charmed Life,” Jimmy and the group grabbed the attention of onlookers and passers-by. They did a number of Jimmy’s originals such as “Youngblood,” “Playing the Game,” “Coming Attraction,” “There’s Not A Reason,” “Disappear” and more. They also did renditions of DNCE’s “Cake By the Ocean,” Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle,” Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down,” Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue” and Don Henley/The Ataris’ “Boys of Summer.” The gathering of dancers in front of the stage grew as the performance went along, and when the crowd called for an encore, Jimmy and the New High returned for one more song, their take on Panic! At the Disco’s “I Write Sins Not Tragedies.”
Jimmy Mowery and The New High delivered the upbeat party to get this installment of the PA Roundhouse Rally off to a bright start! Pictured are the band, along with a few other sights and folks present during this kickoff to PA Roundhouse Rally #3!
