Let’s put this to rest once and for all – there is absolutely nothing generic about the band formerly known as We Are Jeneric.

Over the course of their four recordings, Jen O’Connor has developed into one of Nippertown’s most sultry and beguiling vocalists. And the hot-wired Eric Krans is still one of the most captivating, can’t-take-your-eyes-off-him frontmen ever to grace a Capital Region stage.

Together, they are a mesmerizing yin-and-yang musical presence, and the proof, as they say, is in the pudding. Celebrating the release of their aptly titled new album, “Our Day in the Sun,” the Parlor (as they are now known) delivered oodles of proof at Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany last weekend.

They shared the stage with the Red Lions and the B3nson Collective’s longtime torchbearers Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned, but B3nson just may have a new leader of the pack in the Parlor and their dazzling new CD.

    You’ve got us all teary eyed. Thank you Nippertown.

  2. Mike Hotter says:

    Agree with all of the above- except I think Eric’s last name is spelt ‘KranS’, unless you’re going for the original German spelling perhaps? Nitpicker, that’s me!

  3. Mr. Reidy says:

    I think this band can get even better, even off this great show.
