DJ Thundercutz got started building up the energy in the room for Me Like Bees and Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear with groovy folk rock beats.
Me Like Bees
The energy for Me Like Bees started off as a slow burn, but they know how to bring the heat. There is no gasoline needed to get the fire going. With each song the crowd’s energy grow as they sang and danced along to a power packed set list. When Me Like Bees played Lana Del Ray’s Blue Jeans in an epic fashion they had me all in. Their cover perfectly fused a power ballad emotion with a dance rock feel. Watching the crowd become enthralled with their music made me fall in love all over again with Me Like Bees. As they played their final song in the set, Iconica, you could feel The Truman alive with the glory of love-the energy was explosive and left the audience begging for one more song. It was beutiful to see people who hadn’t experienced Me Like Bees before become fans.
The room was full of excited anticipation as Mama Bear took the stage. The crowd erupted in cheers and people yelling we love you Mama Bear. She took her seat and opened the set with a warm cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s song Old Friends. If this wasn’t the perfect song to open with I don’t know what was. The room was full of long time fans and friends.The warmth from the stage settled on a crowd hanging on every note. For the second song the full band joined the stage taking the energy up further.Their music is all heart and soul. Their recorded albums are amazing, but to hear them live is to feel the music in your soul. There was joy in the air as songs from the years filled The Truman. When they played their last song, Silent Movies the crowd was bursting with energy as they sang along. The band held their mics over the audience as they sang the ahh ahhs and oooos. The feeling in the room was exuberant love. The crowd would not let them end just yet getting a encore from them. It was a epic night of music.
