Frontman Ken Griffin is a natural performer, and he approaches his vocal duties with all the bravado and vibrato of a lounge singer. Griffin sings in a rich baritone from the front of the stage, so close to the audience that they can practically trace their fingers on the patterns of his dapper scarf. If Griffin had never met the remaining members of Favourite Sons, the singer could've make a fine living crooning for the upper-crust folks in fine restaurants and luxury hotel lobbies.
But Griffin's no Tony Bennet. His lyrics are dark, his presence broody, his songs anthemic. The Favourite Sons specialize in classic bar-band rock, with songs like "Hang On, Girl" boasting a foot-clapping, sing-along, fist-pumping sound. And when Griffin's tremulous croon gets the best of the band, they embrace their singer's loneliness with such tracks as "Pistols & Girls" - a marching, militant salute to the forces that inspire this solid group.
