On a clear sky night, Mizner Park Amphitheater was lit up with blue and green streams of lights. The fun atmosphere was put to silence once the act the audience anticipated came on, Andy Grammer; the lead singer. The crowd went wild and the ambiance had an organic feeling.
The singer began the show with his most well-known song, “Gotta Keep Your Head Up.” Everyone sang along and knew every word. Grammer also puts his own twist to the song, adding longer notes and melodic changes. The crowd was hysterical and continued to sing along. His lead guitarist jammed along, extending to his section to a solo tune before the songs ended.
Before each song, Grammer talked to the audience, like they were friends of his. He connected with the crowd by relating each song to a real experience that led him to writing the lyrics. Fans were excited to hear these real-life stories from their idol.
“How many of you came here with your best friends?” Grammer said. “Hug your best friends and tell them how much you love them!”
Grammar’s interaction with the crowd was cosmic. It felt like Andy Grammer was having a normal conversation with the entire audience. He spoke to the crowd about his relationship with his girlfriend, relating it to some of his songs. Our heartstrings were pulled when he spoke of his mother watching above from heaven. The crowd showed their sympathy by ‘awing’ at this newfound fact.
The serious mournful environment slowly faded out as it got into a more playful tone. One of the songs they sang was “Good to Be Alive (Hallelujah).” He showed his fans how to dance along with the lively song. The silly dance made everyone around feel carefree for the night. The songs didn’t seem to stop and no one wanted him to leave. Time seemed to go by too fast and eventually the songs were put to rest. The crowd died down as soon as the last song was played along with the final guitar solo of the night. The bittersweet feeling of him leaving the stage was felt by the crowd as they slowly exited the venue.
Music in the background began to play, transitioning to the next act. While people waited, others decided to leave early or bought merchandise. The concert was close to ending, and people’s post-concert depression kicked in, but the memories remained as unforgettable.
