Grace Potter (Ooh La La)

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, a Jay Leno favorite (two appearances in the past month), have been playing to packed houses across the country. Their show at House of Blues was no different. GPN, as they are known to their fans, are a Vermont-based rock band that has been around for a few years but have become more popular since they covered Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" for the Johnny Depp movie Alice in Wonderland and the release of their third, self-titled album, which produced two strong hits, "Oasis" and "Paris (Ooh La La)."

Supporting Potter is a talented band that includes guitarist Scott Tournet, drummer Matt Burr, guitarist Benny Yurco, and Catherine Popper, the winner of "Best Legs on a Bass Player." The band blew the roof off of HoB for almost two hours, with songs such as "Hot Summer Love," "One Short Night," and "Oasis." And Grace displayed a soulful voice on "Apologies" and "2:22," the latter from GNP's first album, Nothing but the Water.

GPN finished the night with a cover of Heart's "Crazy on You" and then were joined onstage by opening act Chamberlin to perform "Big White" and then close the evening the way they started it, pumping up the crowd with the good old rock-and-roll of "Paris (Ooh La La)."

Thanks for the review. I like her music and have only seen her on You tube. I wish I could have seen the show.
