When Huey Lewis steps onto a stage, it's always a party of sorts.

Huey Lewis and The News cranked up the sound and the energy during their concert June 13 at The Venue at Hammond's Horseshoe Casino.

The band rolled out all the expected hits for a full house of fans during the 90-minute show.

Lewis, who proved he's still one of the most energetic lead singers around, had his audience dancing and singing throughout the show. He and his fellow musicians, all dynamic performers, didn't refrain from holding fans' attention.

In concert, Lewis and his band performed polished versions of hits such as "The Power of Love," "The Heart of Rock and Roll," "Heart and Soul,"If This Is It," and "I Want A New Drug."

Other highlights of the show were an acapella version of "Little Bitty Pretty One," and "Cruisin." Lewis' still proved a real spitfire while performing on the harmonica in concert.

The group, which got its start in San Francisco, remains at the top of its game. This year's tour celebrates the 30th anniversary of the band's "Sports" album which sported the Lewis anthems "Heart of Rock and Roll," "I Want a New Drug," "If This Is It," and "Heart and Soul."

Lewis and his band have been frequent performers at The Venue in the last few years. Judging from the energy in the crowd, fans will no doubt keep coming back to see the musicians.
