The Crash Test Dummies rocked the stage at The Narrows on Friday night. The Canadian based rock band which reunited for the first time in seventeen years, was led by Brad Roberts (vocals), supported by original members Ellen Reid (vocals), Dan Roberts (bass guitar), and Mitch Dorge (drums), as well as a couple of solid touring members on guitar and keyboards.
The tour celebrates the 25th anniversary of the group’s seminal sophomore album God Shuffled His Feet. The band was tight, with Brad Roberts at the forefront, leading the way with his hauntingly distinct bass-baritone voice. His fellow bandmates were spot-on, performing as if they haven’t missed a beat during their long hiatus.
The alternative rock band superbly played many of the hits off of their eponymous album such as “God Shuffled His Feet,” “Afternoons and Coffeespoons,” “Psychic,” “When I Go Out With Artists,” “In the Days of the Caveman,” “How Does a Duck Know?” as well as their signature song “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm.”
A packed house at The Narrows got their fill of great music and a fantastic performance. What’s Up Rhode Island was there to cover an evening of inspired Canadian
