Recently our photojournalist Savannah Rowley had the privilege to attend and photograph WJRR’S 101.1 Not So Silent Night event at Orlando’s Amway Center featuring female-fronted music acts Halestorm, In This Moment and New Years Day. A night full of emotion, heavy rock, and a night to be remembered as each band commanded the stage making all eyes appear on them.
New Years Day was the first band to take the stage. performing popular hits such as “Kill or Be Killed”, “I’m About to Break You”, and “Epidemic.” The band warmed up the screaming crowd getting them ready for what was to come.
In This Moment took the stage next, bringing their theatrics to life featuring smoke, lots of spectacular outfit changes and the message of being a badass no matter what anyone says. Performing popular songs such as “Blood”, “Roots”, and “Whore” this band is always a pleasure to see and capture live. Their stage presence always blows me away.
Halestorm closed out the night with a fantastic set. After only seeing them once before, they definitely gained a new fan. With popular songs performed such as “Love Bites”, “Apocalyptic” and a very emotional, acoustic version of “Dear Daughter” – the entire crowd was in awe at Lzzy Hale’s vocals throughout the night and the way the band lit up the arena with their energy and performance.
Overall, the night was truly amazing and I was so happy to be able to capture it all. If you ever get the chance to see any of these bands live, i highly recommend it! Definitely one of the best ways to close out the year.
