Photo Review: The Neighbourhood Perform SOLD OUT Halloween Show In Orlando – 10/31/19

Last night our photojournalist Savannah Rowley had the pleasure of attending The Neighbourhood’s sold out show at the House of Blues Orlando for Halloween night, and what a memorable night it was. The NBHD had musical acts Claud and Slow Hollows open the show, coming out in costumes such as a monkey and hotdog, with several crowd members in costumes themselves. The long-awaited show led to much excitement as the Neighbourhood had an amazing production and were all dressed up for the occasion.

Opening the night was Claud, a solo project of Claud Mintz. Formerly known as Toast, the band has re-cooperated and released new music, on the rise touring with musical acts such as Clario, Triathlon and The Maria’s. The band members came out in a banana suit, monkey suit and a penguin suit, playing well known songs “Sideline Star” and “Wish You Were Gay.”

Slow Hollows was up next, owning the stage in costumes as a hotdog, flower queen, and Billie Eilish. Playing songs such as “Nerve”, “Hospital Flowers” and “The Art School Kids”, they gave an amazing performance while fans waited in anticipation for the NBHD to take the stage. With their recently released new album Actors that features production from Tyler, The Creator I’m sure this band will be blowing up more in the future.

Lastly the band everyone had been waiting for took the stage, The Neighbourhood. Opening with recently released single, “Middle of Somewhere”, Jesse Rutherford came out solo with a guitar in a frankenstein costume which had the crowd going wild. The rest of the band followed in skull costumes and makeup as the night continued playing popular songs such as “Afraid”, “Scary Love”, “R.I.P. 2 My Youth” and the infamously known “Sweater Weather”. To commemorate the night, the band also played a rendition of “Monster Mash”, making it equally just as spooky.

Skillet Rock Out a SOLD OUT Show at House of Blues Orlando – June 8, 2017

Last night our photojournalist Savannah Rowley had the opportunity to capture the Christian rock band Skillet, along with support Devour the Day and opener T.R.O.Y. at House of Blues in Orlando, FL.

T.R.O.Y opened the night getting the sold out crowd rowdy. Originating from Springfield, Missouri, Skillet mentioned it was their first time touring with the band and they had a lot of potential to come.

Devour the Day continued the night. Originating from Memphis, Tennessee the band is most known for their song “The Bottom” which plays on the Sirius XM Octane station. The band is currently supporting Skillet on their Unleashed Tour.

Then finally, what every fan in the room came to see. Skillet took the stage, opening with fan favorites, “Feel Invincible”, “Whispers in the Dark”, and “Sick of It”. The whole crowd was screaming and jumping up and down, even on the balcony fans were going crazy. With strobe lights in effect, and smoke rising up throughout the set, it was one action packed 90 minute set. Jen Ledger (drummer) even joined in to sing on stage during songs such as “Hero” and “Awake and Alive.” Closing the night with their most popular song “Monster”, with the encore off their latest album Unleashed, “The Resistance”. They left fans amazed at another amazing performance.

 

We can’t wait for the next time Skillet comes back to rock with us! You can follow Savannah’s socials such as FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to keep up to date on these photos and other events!

 

Florida Music Festival 2017 – Orlando, FL April 21-22nd

This weekend in Orlando, our photojournalist Savannah Rowley covered the 17th annual Florida Music Festival & Conference held at UCF Rosen College and the surrounding Lake Eola area. There were conference panels featuring a keynote talk and Q&A session with the Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman, as well as music business panels with people speaking from Okeechobee Festival, Global Citizen, as well as venues like House of Blues and agencies such as ReverbNation.

In the keynote session, Lyman spoke on what Warped has become since the start. Stating that it started on corporate dollars, the brands that originally helped fund it including how it became the Vans Warped Tour (can you believe it was almost the Calvin Klein Warped Tour?) Lyman said he was the first person who wasn’t also a music artist to start a festival. His main goal for Warped Tour is to educate people, whether it’s learning about a new organization or checking out a new band.
