A number of songs had the crowd singing along which did not go unnoticed by the band’s singer, Mike Hendo , who took time out between songs to thank fans for knowing their lyrics. All the songs were tight and the quality of their songs played live was fantastic; a rare compliment to give! The band interacted well on stage with each other and they really projected a brilliant and energetic presence regardless of The Tunnels’ small stage. What really stood out for me especially though, apart from the quality of the songs, was the crowd interaction they created by getting people involved in songs and showing they were making an effort. For me, this is the essence of a true band: Loving their music, and loving their fans.
Not only did the band do that, it was clear to see that they were having fun on stage and weren’t taking it too seriously which was represented perfectly by an incident in with the lead singer laughed when a crowd member told him to F*** Off. Even though it is very difficult to choose, my favourite song of the night would have to be ‘Let’s Call This A Home Run’ . They completely smashed it out of the park and it’s no surprise as they have toured with the likes of Deaf Havana, Four Year Strong, The Dangerous Summer, Francesqua, Yashin, Not Advised and A Loss for Words.
